Before the start of the 2023 Hungarian Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton had a favorable reaction to Sky Sport’s junior reporter, Ruby. This video has since gone viral.
Sky Sports F1 is starting a new broadcast of Formula 1 designed for children. So the reporters and commentators will all be conducted by children. The children were all from the UK since the company is based out of there.

The Hungarian Grand Prix will be the first Grand Prix to be presented by Sky Sports’ junior squad. Jenson Button who is an ex-Formula 1 driver and world champion said:
“We are really excited about giving the next generation of F1 fans a platform to show their passion and excitement for the sport as F1 continues to grow in popularity amongst younger audiences. We may just find our next Crofty or Naomi Schiff!”
David Croft, commonly referred to as Crofty, is a very highly reputed commentator for the Formula 1 Grand Prix. He was the first presenter to use the phrase “It lights out and away we go”. This phrase has since become very popular among Formula 1 fans.

Lewis Hamilton is a role model for a number of children around the world. His story is one that can inspire everyone. He is the only black driver to race in Formula 1, and also the most statistically accomplished driver in Formula 1’s history. Any child who has witnessed his greatness will be honored to meet Lewis Hamilton.
Lewis Hamilton is currently chasing his 8th title in Formula 1. Although his team has not been able to help him do so in the last couple of years, he is still hopeful. Over the last few races, Lewis and Mercedes have been performing well. However, the Hungarian Grand Prix will be a difficult one.
The Hungarian Grand Prix is often referred to as “Monaco without walls”. The Hungaroring is one of the few low-speed-high-downforce circuits on the calendar. It will be a difficult track to overtake in. Also, Red Bull is expected to reveal its newest upgrade to the car and it’s predicted to be a major one as well. We are yet to see what kind of difference this makes on track.
Let us see if Mercedes and Lewis Hamilton can keep up their performance at the Hunagroring.
