Red Bull will look to bounce back at Hungary GP

Red Bull had a disastrous weekend at British GP. First, their star driver Max Verstappen was involved in a massive crash at Copse in the opening lap. Then, Sergio Perez, who started the race behind Nikita Mazepin, could only secure one point for the Milton-Keynes outfit for the fastest lap.

Their arch-rivals Mercedes, on the other hand, secured victory in their backyard to end Red Bull’s five-race winning streak.

However, it would be an uphill task for Red Bull to win at Hungaroring; Lewis Hamilton has won in Hungary a record eight times. In addition, Silver Arrows have decreased Red Bull’s lead in the constructors’ championship to just four points.
