Which useful trend or statistic stuck out most during your research?

ebeimfohr: We don’t want to buy too much into rumor, but there are rumors flying that Sergio Perez started testing out the new floor Red Bull (and Ferrari) were directed to change to by the FIA in a few races. He did not have the pace last week, so it wouldn’t be too surprising, and the results of this weekend have backed that up. He is starting 11th on the grid, with Max Verstappen starting 10th after running into power issues in Q3 of qualifying. Meanwhile, Mercedes have continued to make progress all year culminating in practice and qualifying this week putting them closer with Ferrari and Red Bull than we’ve seen all year. Even McLaren saw BIG pace increases this week and appears to be much more competitive. All this is to mean that it appears F1 is a LOT more wide open now from a results perspective. The days of Verstappen – Leclerc automatic 1-2 and Red Bull/Ferrari total domination are gone.

feartheturtle: The Hungaroring near Budapest, Hungary has hosted a race every year since 1986 and is known for only having one long straight with lots of long corners. Recently, Ferrari has been a bit faster in the corners while Red Bull clearly has the straight line pace this season. From a high level, this track may favor Ferrari a bit. Also we should not discount Mercedes, who seem to be in a much better spot than a few months back. Lewis Hamilton has four straight podiums here and while it would be quite the upset, it might be the best spot for him to grab his first win of the season. Pole position is extra important this week as the circuit is very narrow and passing is more difficult here than at most races.

How will you try to best differentiate yourself from the rest of the field?

ebeimfohr: Fading Ferrari in CST should almost assuredly differentiate you off the bat, but Lewis Hamilton and George Russell together in lineups is another of my favorite options for the week. Lastly, McLaren has made huge strides in pace, and looking to both their drives (particularly Lando Norris) as well as being overweight their CST.

feartheturtle: I will be looking to avoid lineups with Ferrari CPT & Ferrari CNSTR and go overweight on some of the cheaper underdogs hoping they win their team matchups (Schumaker, Stroll, Tsunoda).

What is your hot take of the week?

ebeimfohr: Mercedes double podium even with Lewis starting 7th.

feartheturtle: Norris lands his second podium of the season with Ferrari going 1-2.
