The British took the lead in the world championship after winning the Greatestria and Hungary, knowing that the driver, Mercedes-Benz Walteri Potas, was the one who crowned the first Formula 1 races this year.

Hamilton won after he passed the Dutchman Max Verstappen (Red Bull), who finished second, and his teammate at Mercedes Finnish Valtre Potas, who came third in the competition that took place in the outskirts of Budapest.
