Max Verstappen has fond memories of the Hungarian Grand Prix and is keen to race there again this weekend.

The Red Bull Racing ace was driving for Toro Rosso this time last year and achieved his best result of the season at the Hungaroring, finishing in a fine fourth place.

Heading back to Budapest with back-to-back second place finishes behind him, Verstappen hopes for more good fortune around the twisty circuit.

“Hungaroring is a great track,” he said.

“I always enjoy driving there because it’s a small track with a big car so it gives a bit of a go kart feeling, it’s also pretty tough due to all the turns, so you don’t really get a chance to rest and usually end up pretty sweaty.

“Sector 2 is my favourite part of the track, it’s all about hitting the apex of one corner right so you are in the right position.

“If you get it wrong it’s a big time penalty, so you need to be really focused.”
