Hamilton rides home a win

Lewis Hamilton of Mclaren Mercedes won Hungarian GP ahead of second placed Kimi Raikkonen of Ferrari and third place Mark Webber of Red Bull Racing.

Hamilton got to a strong start using his KERS to get ahead of Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel.  Mark Webber though passed him again but Hamilton regained the position later. Hamilton took the race lead at lap 13 after front right tight came off Fernando Alonso’s car after latter’s pitstop. Renault have been suspended from next GP at Valencia because of the incident. Hamilton then never lost the race lead. The win is an effort of all the team and hats off to team Mclaren for proving once again that class is permanent and form is only temporary.

Raikkonen had an equally good start but was investigated for the event surrounding his contact with Vettel at the start. He pushed his KERS enough to get ahead of Vettel after turn 1. But Vettel had to retire soon after damaging his suspension!

Jenson Button finished seventh and blamed tyre issues for the late foes in the championship. Button is still 18.5 points ahead of Webber in WDC.
