Vettel knew shot at Hungary win over after pit issue

Vettel knew shot at Hungary win over after pit issue

The Ferrari driver was third at the Hungaroring, one place behind team-mate Sebastian Vettel as Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton took a second successive victory.

Valtteri Bottas says he felt hurt after being refereed to by his team boss at Mercedes as Lewis Hamilton's "wingman" during his chaotic Hungarian Grand Prix finish.

'We could have only dreamt to be in the position that we are in now, ' Hamilton said.

"So we touched and I was the only one who got damage". Scoring points. I didn't do myself a favour in Germany but I think it's part of racing.

Despite superior speed in practice, in dry conditions, they were unable to claim the result they craved in a dark week that followed the death of the team's former chairman Sergio Marchionne. And while he was on the podium in Austria, it was a race he would have won - after Mercedes' double retirement - but for a three-place grid penalty for blocking in qualifying. I think obviously if we come out ahead [after the pit stop], then the last stint is a lot more relaxed. "And hopefully we will be able to upgrade our package in the second-half of the season so it's a little bit stronger than theirs".

So when he was bumped off track on his way to a podium finish by Mercedes' Valterri Bottas at the Hungarian GP the Australian took matters into his own hands, or fingers as it were.

Vettel started on the softs and went for a longer first stint than Mercedes, anxious by Ferrari's quick getaways, which opted for ultrasofts that were quicker at the start but faded more rapidly.

Hurricanes in 'final' mindset against Crusaders
Hurricanes coach Chris Boyd admitted after his side's defeat that the Crusaders were a class above the rest of the competition. Hurricanes skipper Brad Shields, playing his last game before heading to England, said the turnover proved costly.

Hamilton, now 24 points clear of Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel after 12 of the 21 races, will head off on holiday a happy man but also recognising he is in a different kind of fight this year compared to 2017.

"We were out of position. So our option was to stop again and try again", said the Finn.

"So, I am confident that we can improve and it should be a very exciting second half to the season". But what can you do?

Therefore, rather than concluding with whether his 110 races for McLaren were more impressive than his 110 races for Mercedes, we must acknowledge that we are witnessing a true great of Formula One who has already had a career which will be hard for future championship-winning drivers to match.

Instead it was Ricciardo's teammate, Max Verstappen who suffered misfortune in Hungary, launching a series of expletives when engine failure curtailed his race after eight laps.

"I got the inside track out of Turn 1 and I had DRS so I was quite comfortable into Turn 2 and knowing that I'd got him and I wanted to make sure that I don't overshoot the braking".

Pierre Gasly finished sixth, while Kevin Magnussen, Fernando Alonso, Carlos Sainz, and Romain Grosjean rounded out the top 10.
