Lewis Hamilton wins the Hungarian Grand Prix for Mercedes BenzJuly 29, 2013 7:44 pm
This weekend, despite the soaring temperatures and Mercedes long standing fears about fast wearing tyres, Lewis Hamilton raced to victory in the Hungarian Grand Prix.
Hamilton himself had stated that it would be a ‘miracle’ if he managed to take the title as champion, specifically because of how much he had been struggling in earlier races. But razor like reflexes ensured that Mercedes claimed a solid victory, landing at the top point of the podium.
It was Hamilton’s first win since joining Mercedes at the end of the last season, and he is now fourth in the championship, 48 points behind leader Sebastian Vettel, who was third in Hungary. Hamilton has now taken his tally of victories at the Hungaroring to four, matching the record of Michael Schumacher-no doubt ensuring substantial prize money for Hamilton. He received over £100million for his move to Mercedes, and this victory will surely only add to his fortune.
