The rain expected on the Budapest weekend it manifested itself in the night just passed between Saturday and Sunday. The Hungarian track is still wet this morning, but it is obviously destined to dry out during the day that is scheduled for the start of the Hungarian Grand Prix at 15:00. Certainly, however, much of the tires deposited in the sessions on Friday and Saturday with the F3, the Porsche Supercup and the W Series on the track, was lost.

The chances of rain during the Grand Prix are low – less than 40% – and the maximum temperature is expected to be 34 ° C. Toto Wolff stressed that he expected an asphalt temperature of around 60-65 ° C and that for this reason at Mercedes they rejected the hypothesis of starting the race with soft tires. Red Bull, on the other hand, will start with the most performing compound with both Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez. The lower the asphalt temperature, the higher the advantage that the two drivers of the Milton Keynes team will have to spend in the first meters.
