At 2.47pm at the Hungaroring, Max Verstappen’s Hungarian Grand Prix appeared to be over. And the formation lap was due to start at 3.10pm.
Then, thirty seconds before the five-minute warning – when the wheels need to be on the car on the grid – Red Bull finished repairing the front left corner of Verstappen’s car. It was a performance of a different kind that was almost as impressive as Lewis Hamilton’s this weekend.
“Basically I locked, came off the brakes, tried to brake again, locked again and just went straight on,” Verstappen said. “I was already struggling for grip and basically just locked up and couldn’t get out of it so I just went straight into the wall.
