The 2024 Hungarian Grand Prix is the next stop on the F1 calendar. The race will take place on Sunday, July 21, at Hungaroring, Mogyorod.

Judging by the 2024 Hungarian GP odds, we won’t. The Red Bull driver is seen as a big favorite to win on July 21. Still, the same was the case last time around.

Reasons Why Odds Favor Max Verstappen

Despite not being as dominant as last season, Max Verstappen remains on the throne of Formula 1. He’s the No. 1 driver in the 2024 Formula One Standings, with 255 points, which is 84 points more than second-placed Lando Norris.

What this means is that even if he wins no points in Hungary, he will stay at the top of the leaderboard. But Verstappen wants to win points. In fact, he wants to win as many as possible on July 21.

He’s determined to get back to the winning track after a couple of disappointing results. He’s won seven of this season’s 12 races, but he’s without a win since June when he won the race in Spain. Since then, we saw him finish 5th in Austria and second in the UK.

Verstappen’s Main Rivals in Hungary

Lando Norris is sitting just behind Verstappen in the Formula One standings. However, the point gap is significant and it’s mainly because he had a couple of poor performances recently. In Austria, for example, he had a collision with Verstappen while the two were battling to win the race. Instead of winning, he ended up in 20th place.

In the previous race, Norris finished third, which isn’t too bad, but the McLaren driver wants to do even better. Another driver who’s desperate to improve his form is Charles Leclerc. The Ferrari driver is third in the standings, but his recent stats are horrendous.

Everything went downhill for this guy after winning the Monaco GP. He had to retire from the Canada race, after which he finished 5th in Spain. In his last two races, he finished 11th and 14th.

Can Lewis Hamilton Keep His Momentum?

Lewis Hamilton won the British GP on July 7, thus ending his winless run that lasted since 2021. Another win could get the British motorsports superstar all the way to the No. 5 position in the F1 standings.

Despite not being near the top of the standings, he’s actually been pretty good this season, finishing in the Top 10 in each race he finished. In his last four races, his worst finish was the No. 4 position. This is why we think he’s got every right to hope to get to the podium once again.

2024 Hungarian GP Prediction

Max Verstappen is the driver who won the previous two editions of this race, and our prediction is that he’s gonna win another one. He’s the best driver in the world, but more importantly, he’s determined to get back to his winning ways.

Pick: Max Verstappen
