Lewis Hamilton wins Hungarian Grand Prix from pole position in scorching 50-degree heat

3 years ago

Lewis Hamilton finally grabbed his first victory with Mercedes by taking a record-equalling fourth chequered flag in Hungary.
Hamilton produced a masterful drive around the Hungaroring to follow up on his wins with McLaren in 2007, 2009 and again last year.
This triumph, however, will taste extra sweet for the 28-year-old Briton as he has been itching to get back on to the top step of the podium after watching team-mate Nico Rosberg win twice earlier this year.
Hamilton finished 10.9 seconds clear of Lotus` Kimi Raikkonen for his 22nd career victory, with the Finn just holding off Red Bull`s Sebastian Vettel over the closing laps to claim second.
After congratulations were expressed over the radio between Hamilton and team principal Ross Brawn, Mercedes` non-executive chairman Niki Lauda summed up the drive perfectly.
Lauda said: "He won the race because he drove sensationally, the best I`ve ever seen him drive in my life.
