Formula 1 World Driver’s Championship leader Max Verstappen insists he is ready to race in this weekend’s Hungarian Grand Prix.

Verstappen holds an eight-point advantage over bitter championship rival Lewis Hamilton, with the Hungaroring set to stage the first meeting of the two since their coming together at the British Grand Prix.

The Dutchman revealed that he was still in some discomfort due to bruising but said he ‘felt good’ heading into the weekend.

“I’m happy to get back on track in Hungary this weekend, especially after the last race result,” said Verstappen.

“I’m a little bruised of course but that’s normal after such a big impact but I’m training and feeling good. I did a 24hr sim race this week and it was a good test to see how my body would react to spending time sat in one position and behind screens for a long time, I felt absolutely fine which makes me feel positive heading into the weekend. I’m definitely ready to go again!”

Not buying into the hype

Verstappen was adamant that he wanted to put the crash and any sort of desire for revenge behind him.

“I don’t have much to say on all the media hype and to be honest I am not interested in getting involved in any of that,” Verstappen said.

“I know what happened at Silverstone as I was in the car and obviously I feel a certain way about how my race ended but now I’m just focusing on making sure we are the best we can be on track so we can stay ahead in the championship. The Team can take care of the official side of things and anything that needs looking into after the crash but my job is the same as always – to be the best I can and try to win on Sunday. I enjoy Hungary as a track and let’s hope there is a little less action on the way to the grid as the mechanics worked some sort of miracle to get my car out for the race last year!”
