This Hungarian Grand Prix was a race weekend for records. Max Verstappen delivered the 12th consecutive Red Bull victory, breaking McLaren’s 1988 record (both with Honda power). The day before, Lewis Hamilton became the first driver to score nine pole positions at the same venue, his Mercedes snatching the position from Verstappen in the dying seconds of the session by 0.003s.

But a little further back, there was another remarkable development unfolding. For this was the race of Daniel Ricciardo’s F1 comeback, the first race of his last-chance saloon opportunity with AlphaTauri as he makes his bid for a return to Red Bull.
