Sunday in Hungary saw Lewis Hamilton take the World Championship lead from Nico Rosberg after he crossed the line in first place leaving his team trailing behind in second place.

Red Bull and Ferrari had constant battles throughout the race. Daniel Ricciardo came out on top with his clash with Sebastian Vettel. The other Ferrari of Kimi Raikkonen lost out to Max Verstappen for 5th place.

It was a disappointing race for Jolyon Palmer who narrowly missed out on his first ever points in Formula 1 after spinning out on turn four.

Podium Interviews

Lewis Hamilton: Well, firstly a big thank you to all the fans here, they’ve been amazing this weekend. It’s because of these guys that this race is so spectacular. We always have such a great time here, the track is great, the city is great, but the fans really make the event, so big, big thank you. With the race, yeah the start was everything. I got a good start… I mean I had one of the Red Bulls was on the inside of me, so I was pressured quite a lot into Turn One. But the team did a fantastic job with the strategy, preparing the car as always, the guys back at the factory continuing to push flat out, so a huge thank you to them, because this is a great result as a team, so yeah, what a day!

Nico Rosberg: Yeah, it was down to the start in the end. I lost out a little bit and then into Turn One, with Daniel on the outside, Lewis on the inside, I ran out of space, so I had to bail out of it. That was it really. I was happy to take Daniel back in Turn Two and from then I was trying to put all the pressure possible on Lewis but of course it’s not possible to pass on this track.

Daniel Ricciardo: Super happy to be here today. It’s three years in a row I’ve been on the podium at this circuit. It’s been good to me and as Lewis said the fans are amazing, so thanks to everyone. Thanks to the team, we are continually getting better, so that’s great, and yeah, I’m having fun.
