Sebastian Vettel will be looking to return to the podium at this weekend’s Hungarian Formula 1 Grand Prix.

The Red Bull Racing driver has finished in the points in his last two Grands Prix in July, claiming a fifth at Silverstone and a fourth-placed result on home soil at the Hockenheimring.

Going at least one better will be the aim at the tight and twisty Hungaroring this weekend. The low-speed, low-grip circuit will be better-suited to the Renault-powered runners, and the German is hoping he can capitalise before the field takes a much-deserved summer recess ahead of the final eight races on the calendar.

“We will be working hard to keep up the momentum and have a good result to enjoy over the holidays,” the reigning World Champion said ahead of this weekend’s race.

“It is normally hot in Hungary for the race which makes it a challenge to drive, but I like the race and atmosphere at the Hungaroring, and have good memories of the races there even though I have never won in Budapest – it is still on my to do list!

“It is quite a slow track but also one that can catch you out. It has some tight, twisty corners and is quite a bumpy track, so you cannot underestimate it.”
