2015 Formula 1 Hungarian Grand Prix

Vettel wins the Hungarian Grand Prix

Sebastian Vettel drove with ease to his victory on Sunday, bringing home Ferrari's second win for the season.

However, behind him was nothing but drama, penalities and continuous action with Daniel Kvyat and Daniel Ricciardo from Red Bull obtaining 2nd and 3rd position with Kvyat achieving his first F1 podium.

For the two 'Silver Arrows' it was just pure frustration and disappointment with Lewis Hamilton starting off poorly from pole position, dropping to 10th place on the 1st lap after running off the track. When Lewis thought his problems were all over, he then had to take a drive through penalty for a collision with Ricciardo and ended up finishing in a disappointing 6th place.

Lewis's team mate Nico Rosberg was all set to take second place, however a collision with Ricciardo at turn 1 with 4 laps to go resulted in a left-rear puncture leaving him to finish in 8th place.

Vettel did reach a threat on lap 42 when Nico Hulkenburg's front wing fell off leaving debris across the track resulting in the deployment of a virtual safety car. However, Vettel was able to hold off the hard charging Red Bulls to secure the win.

The result of the Hungarian Grand Prix has left Lewis Hamilton still top of the leaderboard with 202 points, Rosberg with 181 and Vettel getting closer with 160.

A minute's silence was observed by race officials for Jules Bianchi before the start of the race.
