Hamilton powers to dominant win in Hungary



Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton took a convincing first win of the season at the Hungarian Grand Prix ahead of Lotus’ Kimi Raikkonen and Red Bull Racing’s Sebastian Vettel. Hamilton’s fourth career victory at the Hungaroring puts him level with Michael Schumacher for most wins at the Budapest track.

Hamilton on pole in Hungary

Lewis Hamilton claimed his third pole position in a row and his fourth of the season to edge out Sebastian Vettel by less than four hundredths of a second in a tense qualifying session ahead of the Hungarian Grand Prix.

Red Bull Racing driver Vettel looked set for his own fourth pole of the season after setting an early Q3 benchmark of 1:19.506, eight tenths ahead of Hamilton’s first timed lap of the segment. The championship leader looked to be even more secure when, with his final run, he managed to shave another tenth off his best time.

Grosjean tops FP3 in Hungary

Romain Grosjean took top spot in the final practice session ahead of qualifying for the Hungarian Grand Prix, his time of 1:20.730 beating out Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso by just under two tenths of a second. 

The morning’s third quickest time went to McLaren’s Sergio Perez, who then crashed soon after Grosjean had completed his timesheet-topping lap. The Mexican driver’s Turn 11 slide into the barriers precluded any further improvement in times.
