Although it was overtaken by Fernando Alonso at the race start and dropped to third place, Mark Webber has awarded himself with a superb victory at the Hungaroring circuit having profited from the superiority of the Red Bull Racing seater, and the drive through penalty received by his teammate Sebastian Vettel.

Felipe Massa finished fourth, in front of Vitaly Petrov found probably at the best race in his Formula 1 career. Renault team rider won a five place after he passed Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg at the start and was followed by Nico Hulkenberg, which in turn produced a good result at the wheel of Williams seater. BMW Sauber runners finished 7 and 9 by Pedro de la Rosa and Kamui Kobayashi, managing to finish on this position although he start only from 23th place.

McLaren was forced to settle for only eight achieved a place of Jenson Button, given that Hamilton dropped in the first part of the race for technical reasons when he was in fourth place.

The last point at stake was awarded by Rubens Barrichello, who finished in 10th place after he passed Schumacher four laps before the final. The Brazilian was pushed into the concrete wall on the start-finish line by the German but he resisted pressure and finished in front.

Hungarian Grand Prix saw five retirements: Hamilton, Kubica, Rosberg, Sutil and Alguersuari.

  1. Thanks a lot for share with a great details.
    Nice blog.I like this share post.
    thanks.

  2. I just saw the Belgian GP qualifying – Mark is doing a great job and I think he can really win it this year. It would be an interesting race tomorrow.

  3. I really think Sebastian Vettel is not ready to become a world champion just yet. If he was a bit more experienced and probably calmer on race days, he would have converted more pole positions to wins. Oh, well, may be next year!

  4. british grand prix

    I’m a bit surprised to see Pedro de la Rosa axed by Sauber, but glad to see Nick back on the grid.

  5. I have been really impressed with Mark Webber this season. Does he have a shot to win the title? Of course he has 🙂
