25 Jul 2016

Budapest’s tight and twisting Hungaroring circuit threw up some fascinating racing over the Formula 1 Magyar Nagydij 2016 weekend. However, there was also plenty going on behind the scenes in the build-up to the Grand Prix. Here's our social media round-up of just a few of the highlights...

And the winner is...

Between the British and Hungarian rounds, Red Bull's Max Verstappen found time to visit Brisighella in Italy and collect the Lorenzo Bandini Trophy, awarded annually for outstanding performance in motorsport.

Smooth sailing

While Verstappen was busy collecting awards, world champion Lewis Hamilton was getting some rest and relaxation on the high seas.

New balls please

Meanwhile, Force India's Nico Hulkenberg was sharpening his tennis skills in aid of the Right to Play campaign, which uses the transformative power of play - playing sport and playing games - to educate and empower children facing adversity.

There's no escape...

…from the worldwide phenomenon that is Pokemon Go - and Red Bull are seemingly among those embracing it.


A creature of a different - furrier - kind has invaded the Massa family residence, and it looks as though he is already feeling very much at home.

Even before practice, Thursday saw a huge turnout from Hungarian F1 enthusiasts eager to meet their heroes. McLaren's Fernando Alonso and Jenson Button appreciated their dedication.

Old jokes never die

Esteban Gutierrez had to give up his Haas for opening practice to Friday driver Charles Leclerc. This was his revenge.

In the swim

McLaren also had some local celebrity support in the form of Budapest-born swimming star Daniel Gyurta.
