F1 returns to Hungary

Over the weekend it was Hungary’s turn to host the Grand Prix in Budapest’s Hungaroring. Qualifying on Saturday made a chaotic opening to the race weekend as heavy rain started just as Q1 began. Once the drivers got underway there were four red flags suspending the session, three of which were due to crashes.

Q3 saw Nico Rosberg take poll position, but fellow Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton had a tricky lap stuck behind Fernando Alonso, which led him to be second on the grid followed by the two Red Bull drivers. It was a good result for the two McLaren drivers as they both made it into the top ten, the first time since McLarens’ new partnership with Honda.

Fortunately, the rain cleared up for the race on Sunday and as the lights went out, Hamilton got off to a good start overtaking his Mercedes team mate to lead the race. Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo put up a good battle for first place but couldn’t quite match the power of the Mercedes and stayed in third position.

Despite achieving a decent qualifying result, the race proved tricky for Jenson Button as hydraulic problems in the first few laps left him dropping to the back of the pack. Controversial new radio message controls meant that he had to pit to resolve the problem, however he still incurred a drive through penalty for earlier radio messages over the issue. The car had to be retired on lap 63 leaving a disappointing end to Button’s race in Hungary - a track that gave him is first race win back in 2006.

The race ended with Hamilton taking first place, Nico Rosberg in second and Ricciardo in third place -  the twelfth podium of his career. This takes Hamilton’s lead to 6 points in the battle for the championship.
