The F1 paddock has arrived in Hungary and the grid is set and the drama of the 2021 season continued with a huge turn 1 clash and questionable decisions by multiple teams.

Latest - Ocon Wins Chaotic GP

Esteban Ocon took the win in another chaotic GP which saw Valteri Bottas retire 3 drivers and permanently damage many others on the first turn.

It's unclear how Bottas made such a drastic mistake, but he sent Lando Norris flying across turn one, taking out every car bar Lewis Hamilton.

In an eventful race, Verstappen, whose body was damaged in the collision, only managed 10th while, after a risky strategy, Hamilton was only able to gain 3rd.
