The final Formula One race before the 2022 summer break takes place this afternoon with Budapest hosting the Hungarian Grand Prix.

Hungaroring has forged a reputation as an incredibly testing track in its long history as a mainstay of the F1 calendar. Lewis Hamilton is seeking his tenth victory at a track he has dominated during his career, but will start in P7 as saw his Mercedes team-mate snatch a surprise pole on Saturday.

World championship leader Max Verstappen cruised to victory in France last week but will start in 10th after power failure in qualifying, with title rival Charles Leclerc in third. The odds of another surprise result cannot be discounted too with Esteban Ocon claiming a shock maiden win at Hungaroring last year as rain played havoc with the frontrunners’ race.

Who is on pole for the F1 Hungarian Grand Prix

George Russell claimed the first pole position of his Formula One career for Sunday's Hungarian Grand Prix.

The 24-year-old edged out Ferrari's Carlos Sainz by just 0.044 seconds, with Charles Leclerc third.

Russell's Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton qualified seventh with Max Verstappen 10th on the grid after he suffered with mechanical problems.

Sainz and Leclerc looked as though they had secured a front-row lockout for Ferrari only for Russell to snatch a shock result with a brilliant final lap at the Hungaroring.
