Red Bull team boss Christian Horner says “there’s a lot of history” between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen, so “it’s going to be a grandstand start”.

After a year and a half of struggles, Lewis Hamilton finally managed to put his car on pole at Hungarian Grand Prix Qualifying.

After the session, Red Bull team boss Christian Horner congratulated Lewis and his team.

“Max was up on his lap on the second run, and I think that he just had a snap on the exit of 13, the penultimate corner, and that cost him vital time, and it was enough to miss out on the pole,” Horner said.

“But congrats to Mercedes and Lewis, it was a strong lap at the end there.”

As for the start of the race tomorrow, Horner warns there could be some close on-track action between these two old rivals.

“I mean, I think so long as they come through the first two turns, then we’ll have an exciting race.

“But with those two, you know, you know that there’s a lot of history between the two of them.

“It’s going to be a grandstand start, that’s for sure,” the Briton concluded.
