F1 returns to Budapest for the Hungarian Grand Prix with everyone wondering whether Max Verstappen and Red Bull can be stopped.

The two-time World Champion opened up a 99-point advantage over teammate Sergio Perez with a sixth consecutive win at the British Grand Prix.

No non-Red Bull driver has secured victory this term, though the circuit characteristics at the Hungaroring will pique interest for the chasing pack.

There's a new qualifying format to be trialled that could lead to changes in the pecking order, but first, the drivers and teams must navigate the first two practice sessions of the weekend.

FP1 was largely a washout, with two red flags disrupting the session along the way as Russell finished fastest. One of which was for Perez, whose bleak spell continued with a crash four minutes in.

Can Verstappen be beaten?

Indeed he was beaten as Charles Leclerc took P1 on a confusing day in Budapest with a topsy-turvy FP2, with reaction from the paddock below.
