In a very wet Hungarian Grand Prix it was McLaren that returned to form as both of their drivers Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button attacked the front row when the lights went out. Due to a costly tire choice the Red Bull drivers suffered and fell off pace but not enough to fade into the background. Lewis had the lead for a good chunk of the race but he was unable to make his tires stretch for the distance and his teammate Jenson took over the lead. Button held off Sebastien Vettel and Fernando Alonso who finished second and third respectively to take the win while Button’s teammate managed to hold on to fourth position.
Many are looking at McLaren’s success in the last two races as a sign that they have finally “figured out” the problem of Red Bull, but with Sebastien holding an 88 points lead over Lewis Hamilton is it too little too late? I guess we just have to keep watching to find out. For a full post-race report check out SPEED.
