McLaren-Mercedes driver Lando Norris will be keen to cement his place in the top three in the 2021 Drivers Championship standings by winning the Hungarian Grand Prix title.
The Belgian-British star finished 13th in last year's Hungarian Grand Prix having been involved in a close fight with Charles Leclerc of Ferrari.

The British Grand Prix which was the 10th round in the current season was won by Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton.
Leclerc secured the runner-spot, while Hamilton's teammate Valtteri finished third as Mercedes enjoyed a successful weekend in Britain.
Red Bull Racing-Honda's Max Verstappen is placed at the top of the 2021 Drivers' Championship standings and he is followed by Hamilton, who is the reigning Formula One world champion.

Norris feels that a slow pitstop ruined his chances of fighting for position one at the British Grand Prix.
"It does feel like a lot, yeah. I don't know what it was, eight seconds or something? At that point, all I needed was an alright pitstop and I would have come out ahead of Bottas," Norris said. 
"And then the worst thing was I came out behind Fernando, which meant I couldn't push on the first lap at all. 
"I destroyed my tyres which meant the whole stint was compromised just from pushing so much on that first lap to try and gain something back, so it was like a double loss that I had."
Red Bull Racing-Honda are placed at the top of the Constructors' Championship standings and they were followed by Mercedes and McLaren-Mercedes respectively.
