‘I could do a 360 so I only lost one spot.’ Max Verstappen jokes after extending lead at the top of the F1 Championship to 80 points following impressive showing at Hungarian Grand Prix

Max Verstappen was in jovial mood after he extended his lead at the top of the F1 Championship following his victory at the Hungarian Grand Prix. Verstappen was helped by another questionable decision from the Ferrari team that took Charles Leclerc out of the running, and he would finish on top of the podium ahead of second placed Lewis Hamilton. As the Red Bull driver suffered a spin early on in the race. Verstappen was forced to overtake rival Leclerc twice, when after the first one he made made rare mistake by losing his rear end. Verstappen was also full of praise for his team’s race plan, who timed the pit stops perfectly so he could undercut his rivals and extend his lead at the top of the championship. Then, at the end, even with a 360, we won the race. The eighth win of the season means Verstappen has extended his lead at the top of the F1 Championship to 80 points over Leclerc in second place.
