Overall the Hungarian Grand Prix was costly for McLAren, Hamiltons retirement and Button managing to finish no higher than eighth place resulted in Mclaren dropping to second in the constructors championship and Loosing the lead in the drivers championship.

While Ferrari is coming on strong, McLaren was definitely off the pace in Hungary. So it is coming down to a three horse race, Red Bull, McLaren and Ferrari. Based upon this past weekends performance Red Bull has the best car right now as we enter the summer break. And While mathematically almost any team could still win the championship it is most likely going to come down to a fight between these three teams. Right now my money is on Red Bull.
