Formula One racing is headed to Budapest for the Hungarian Grand Prix. We’ll update qualifying until we’ve got the full racing grid is set Sunday’s race at Hungaroring.

Q3 results: George Russell claims the pole position at the 2022 Hungarian Grand Prix — his first career win of the pole position! Max Verstappen had a disappointing Q3 run and will start from the 10th position in the starting grid after leading the field in Q2.

Q2 results: Max Verstappen led this round with a lap time of 1:17.703, followed by Charles Leclerc (+0.065) and Fernando Alonso (+0.201). Sergio Perez was the most notable driver eliminated in this round, finishing with the 11th-best time among the field. Also eliminated were Guanyu Zhou, Kevin Magnussen, Lance Stroll, and Mick Schumacher.

Q1 results: Lewis Hamilton led the field with a lap time of 1:18.374, followed by George Russell (+0.033) and Carlos Sainz (+0.060).

Yuki Tsunoda, Alexander Albon, Sebastian Vettel, Pierre Gasly and Nicholas Latifi were eliminated.

Formula One racing has arrived in Hungary this weekend for the Hungarian Grand Prix. The race will take place on Sunday at Hungaroring, getting underway at 9 a.m. ET on ESPN. It will be available for live stream at WatchESPN.

The day prior, qualifying will take place at 10 a.m. ET., also on ESPN2. The 20 drivers will face off for an hour of racing to establish the fastest time and secure pole position. F1 qualifying is broken up into three stages. The first 20 minutes will eliminate five drivers and the next 15 minutes will eliminate five more. That will leave the remaining ten competing for pole position in Sunday’s race.

Ahead of qualifying, Charles Leclerc stands as the favorite to win, with odds at +120. It’s a nice change of pace from Max Verstappen (+200), who has been a weekly favorite. It’s no wonder, too, with his dominance in the F1 standings. He leads the field with seven wins this season, while Leclerc sits as the only other driver with multiple F1 wins in 2022 (Bahrain, Australia, Austria).

Here is the full entry list for Saturday’s Hungarian Grand Prix as qualifying gets underway. We’ll provide updates with each driver’s time and how the starting lineup settles.
