Lewis Hamilton had a good reason to celebrate at the Hungarian Grand Prix Qualifying. Both himself and his team-mate Valtteri Bottas qualified on the front row, in front of his main championship rival Max Verstappen.
When it was time for Lewis to do his post-qualifying interview, a loud chorus of boos and jeers from the crowd in Hungary could be heard.
However, Lewis didn’t seem to mind it as he was ecstatic about his team’s success.
“I think it has been amazing teamwork from everyone this weekend, Valtteri included, just trying to push the car forwards, developing constantly,” the Briton said.
“The guys back at the factory just not left any stone unturned. So, it’s been amazing to see everyone coming together and rallying up and pushing forward so, and I appreciate the great support I have here.”

As for the boos, the seven-time champion said:
“Honestly I’ve never actually felt so great with the booing. If anything, it just fuels me, so I don’t really mind it.”
Red Bull will be starting the race on soft tyres, while Mercedes will be on mediums.
“I think the soft tyre is worth something like five metres down into down one, it’s a long way down into Turn 1.
“So yeah, it was surprising to see the guys behind us, most people, I think everyone in the top 10, on the soft except for us. We will see.
“It’s definitely great having a lock-out for our team. It’s the first time in a long time so big, big thank you to everyone back to the factory and.
“I hope the weather is good for everyone tomorrow, enjoy the sun and stay safe,” concluded Hamilton.
