The Hungarian Grand Prix is the closest that Robert Kubica has to a home race, in the absence of a Polish GP. So, with numerous Poles flocking to Hungary to support their driver, the Williams F1 team serenaded Kubica for the fans.

Leading the cheers, was none other than his own teammate, George Russell, to Kubica’s embarrassment. Russell led the chanting for a few seconds, while Robert Kubica was simply standing there and waving to the cheering crowd.

In all honesty, Russell is the very definition of ‘Best Teammate Ever’ and certainly deserves the ‘Wingman of the Year’ award.

“There will be around 20,000 Polish fans. There will be lots of Hungarian and Dutch nationals, but Poles are one of the largest groups,” Anita Toth, the spokesperson of the Hungaroring race track told the Polish Press Agency.

“Lots of fans come from Poland for the Hungarian GP to see their ‘national hero’ Robert Kubica on the track. When it turned out that Kubica returns to F1 as part of the Williams team, Poles… purchased a significant part of tickets for the GP,” a Hungarian website wrote.
