Lewis Hamilton was in mischievous mood in the post-race press conference at the Hungarian GP as he talked Fernando Alonso with Max Verstappen and Sebastian Vettel.

It was in the week after the Hungarian GP last year that one unexpected driver move sent the F1 market into a frenzy in what should have been the sport’s summer ‘break’.

Daniel Ricciardo left his then-Red Bull bosses as stunned as the wider sport by signing for Renault, creating a vacancy at the top end of the grid and setting off a series of interlinked moves.

Before the sport reconvened for the Belgian GP three weeks later, Pierre Gasly had been announced as Ricciardo’s successor while Carlos Sainz, who had been on loan at Renault from the Red Bull stable, fully cut his ties with the company and signed up with McLaren. It didn’t take long for the rest of the 2019 grid to fill in from there.
