Jenson Button has endured a testing season this year finishing in the top five of a Grand Prix just once in nine races as his McLaren team toil in what is destined to be a season of rebuilding for one of Formula One’s most prestigious teams.
Despite this term’s struggles the British driver has managed to drag himself into the top 10 on no fewer than six occasions this term and he looks nailed on to repeat that feat at the Hungaroring, a feat he is 4/6 to achieve.
Button has enjoyed success at the Hungarian Grand Prix over the years, winning the event in 2006 and 2011.
The last time the 2009 world champion finished outside of the top 10 at this race was back in 2007 when he was forced to retire. On only three occasions in his career has the 33-year-old failed to register a top 10 in Mogyorod, and in each of those contests it has been retirement that has forced his hand.
If Button completes the race, the aforementioned price looks terrific value.
Nico Hulkenberg has found some form again after four races outside of the points.
The German got off to a poor start to his year, failing to make the grid in Australia but he followed that up with eighth and tenth placed finishes in the next two races.
The next four saw Hulkenberg struggle but his previous two outings have seen him end just inside the points with a pair of tenth places, and he is healthily priced at 13/8 to make it a hat-trick here.
Adrian Sutil was impressive at the Young Drivers test at Silverstone, posting the second fastest time of the event behind world champion Sebastian Vettel.
The Force India driver hasn’t had the best of times in this race, retiring three times in his career, but he has shown good from on his return to the sport this year, ranking in the points on four occasions.
Prior to a 13th placed finish in his home Grand Prix last time out the German was on a run of three successive top 10 results, and he should see some attention at 8/11 to score points in Hungary.
