BUDAPEST, Hungary – Ferrari's Fernando Alonso will seek to extend his championship lead at Sunday's Hungarian Grand Prix and become the first Formula One driver to win four races this season.
Alonso has won two of the last three races — in Valencia and Hockenheim — while finishing second in Silverstone. After 10 events, he leads the Red Bull duo of Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel by more than 30 points.
The Hungaroring, one of the slowest tracks on the 20-race calendar, is the last event before a monthlong summer break.
Alonso, who won his first F1 race at the Hungaroring in 2003, can also expect a strong challenge from the McLaren team, which has won four of the last five races at the Hungarian track.
