Enough Connection Time in BUD?

I have a flight in early December for TLV-BUD on Wizz Air arriving at 10pm on Saturday and my next separate ticket is departing on Sunday at 6am on Lufthansa business to FRA (then SFO).

I'm concerned if the Wizz Air flight is cancelled for some reason, then I'll surely miss my flight. But looking at the past history, none of them have been cancelled as far as I can tell. Would you feel comfortable with this connection?

Buy some travel insurance. Is it not possible / too expensive to fly TLV-FRA with LH?

My ticket starts from BUD, which is why I have to fly there.

Does travel insurance cover missed flights in the event I didn't buffer enough time?

Check your policy re 'buffer time'

My policy only kicks in if I have left at least 6 hours between scheduled arrival of Flight A and scheduled departure of separately booked Flight B.

And some won't cover you at all in these circumstances as separate flights are not connections.

Which travel insurance company do you use?

I have a (bought) policy from Amex in the UK but I am led to believe it is no longer available for new customers.
