Belgian-Dutch driver, Max Verstappen has praised Red Bull's strategy and flexibility as he secured a victory he never expected at Sunday's Hungarian Grand Prix.

The world championship leader started the race 10th on the grid following a power unit issue during qualifying, but his team made a series of good strategy calls in contrast to the faltering Ferrari decisions which saw Charles Leclerc drop from first to sixth that helped him battle to his eighth win of the season ahead of the summer break.

He now boasts an 80-point lead in the drivers' standings and even survived a 360 spin during the race to win by more than seven seconds from Lewis Hamilton.

Red Bull switched Verstappen's tyres from hard to soft following the reconnaissance laps and he believes the versatility of his pit-wall was crucial in helping him to battle through the field.
