Hungarian GP: race preview
Last week, Max Verstappen proved that, in Red Bull machinery, he's all but unstoppable – but we did see a slight crack. Losing traction off the line, the Dutchman relinquished first position to fellow front-row qualifier Lando Norris, who led for several minutes before finally succumbing to Max's pressure.
However, for McLaren, the final 2-4 finish (which could have easily been a 2-3) is a huge confidence booster. Emerging as a potential best-of-the-rest outfit, Zak Brown's team appear to have benefited hugely from their mid-season upgrades – and rookie Piastri is finally showing the talent we were promised.
Nyck de Vries, on the other hand...not so much. Alpha Tauri's rookie has been told to sling his hook after a disappointing first half of the season. Stepping up in his place is fan favorite Daniel Ricciardo.
The former McLaren and Red Bull man lost his seat after a poor 2022 season, but now back after just six or so months, there's much speculation that he's gunning to get his old position at Red Bull back. What's more, with Perez's lacklustre performance in recent races, this could well become a reality.
The Hungarian Grand Prix is a tricky and technical race, and success at the Hungaroring often depends on stellar qualifying and strong defense. This means that Saturday will be more important than ever, so make sure to catch the afternoon session at least.

How to watch the Hungarian Grand Prix live stream from outside your country
If you're abroad for this weekend's Hungarian Grand Prix, you'll likely find you're unable to access your usual Formula 1 coverage like you would at home. This isn't necessarily cause for alarm, but rather the result of geo-blocking – best understood as digital borders that restrict certain services and content to certain parts of the world.
Fortunately, there's a convenient way around this in the form of a VPN. This is a nifty bit of software that lets you whizz around these digital borders, thereby allowing you to globe trot and still access your preferred F1 live stream. It's a completely legal workaround, very affordable, and super easy to use – allow us to explain more.
