12pm - The 2014 Hungarian GP – Race



Lewis Hamilton is tied with Michael Schumacher as the most successful driver of all-time in Hungary having won the race on four occasions. The Mercedes man broke his duck for the Silver Arrows at the Hungaroing last year and another win in 2014 would make it three in a row at the venue.

Jenson Button is the only other current driver to have won the race on multiple occasions, whilst Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen have also both stood atop the podium in 2003 and 2005 respectively.

2013 result: 1. Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes); 2. Kimi Raikkonen (Lotus); 3. Sebastian Vettel (Red Bull); 4. Mark Webber (Red Bull); 5. Fernando Alonso (Ferrari); 6. Romain Grosjean (Lotus); 7. Jenson Button (McLaren); 8. Felipe Massa (Ferrari); 9. Sergio Perez (McLaren); 10. Pastor Maldonado (Lotus).

Last five winners in Hungary: 2013: Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes); 2012: Lewis Hamilton (McLaren); 2011: Jenson Button (McLaren); 2010: Mark Webber (Red Bull); 2009: Lewis Hamilton (McLaren).


Pirelli will bring the white-marked medium and yellow-banded soft tyres to the Hungaroring, as was the case in 2013.

“The Hungaroring is a relatively slow-speed track, but the race is often run in hot conditions, increasing the work on the tyres. To provide a wide working range and increase opportunities for strategy, the medium and the soft tyres will be brought to Hungary.,” the Italian firm said.

Can't take 2005 as "beating Schumacher to the title" the Bridgestone tyres were terrible in comparison to the Michelins. Most of the season the Ferrari's were just higher midfield, in fact on pure pace they were even behind Toyota. Gives about as much credence to Schumacher "beating Alonso" to the 2001,2003 and 2004 titles.

Maybe Ricciardo is really good rather than Vettel being really bad? He is having a pretty good season and who knows he may go on to be a multi world championship winner. I think Rosberg is a worthy opponent for any of the top drivers. I think you put alonso Vettel or any top driver in the merc and they wouldn't walk over Rosberg easily. Not this season anyway. The mercs too dominant and even starting low down the grid can usually creep into the points. So even if Rosberg had the bad luck that Hamilton as had I still think it'd be close. It's not like before where other cars can get in the mix. So this plus the odd episodes of bad luck ie mechanical failure crashes etc will mean that there would never be a huge difference between the two merc drivers. I wish schuey had the merc when it was this good it would of been great to see him win for them too!

Yes Ricciardo may be the next big thing but last year he never wiped the floor with Jean Eric Vergne at Torro Rosso. He has been impressive this year no doubt but if Vettel is being painted as an all-time great then I would not be expecting him to being wiped the floor with by a newcomer to the team he has ruled for four years. All-time greats I expect much better from so it begs the question is he really an all-time great or a benefactor of a fabulous car. People will judge that for themselves.

bet Vettel wishes Red Bull had gone after Kimi now Very Happy

on a more serious choice, RB's backing of Ricciardo is actually looking like a very astute move right now.

True but I think it's Ferrari's double bluff. 

They like doing things on their terms. Not leaked out.

Yes it is certainly looking a lot more realistic now that Red Bull are not the team they were and with Adrian Newey taking a back seat. And Vettel will not feel as if he is leaving the team in the lurch since Ricciardo is doing so well.

LH leaving whatever the outcome is something I can't agree with. If Hamilton win the championship, he's staying exactly where he is. He'd be World Champion, at the best team, still with a year left on his deal & shown that he's able to beat Rosberg, even with a host of issues. Just because Vettel is unhappy means nothing to the future of Hamilton, if he wins the championship. Agree, if it goes the other way though & Rosberg is victorious, I see McLaren & Ron Dennis making a statement of intent & bringing Lewis back to galvanise the team, leading into the Honda era. Then Vettel could jump to Mercedes. Its all hypothetical though, I still see Vettel at Ferrari.

Yes I see what you are saying John but would disagree with a few things. I agree that if Hamilton won the world title he'd stay put. However, there is no way Vettel will end up at Ferrari whilst Alonso is there - absolutely not. I agree the most obvious move for Hamilton if he were to leave would be a return to McLaren but Red Bull (if they continue to improve) may be an option as well.

Mercedes' title-warring drivers have been told they must follow team orders over the remaining eight races of 2014.

Wolff added that the pair "will continue to be free to race" for the rest of their 2014 title battle.

But he also said that Mercedes' "priority as a team is always to give ourselves the best chance of winning the race - no matter which driver is fighting for it".

I don't see Sebastian Vettel at Mercedes working out TBH. Vettel is the obviously the most popular/talented/marketable German racer out there. But if Nico Rosberg becomes world champion, then surely he'd be favoured over Vettel. Vettel might be the four time champion, but as Lewis Hamilton seems to be finding out, Rosberg is Mercedes' golden boy. There's no real love lost between Lauda and Vettel to boot either.

Vettel to McLaren or Ferrari would be more logical moves. As he'd be the lead driver. Assuming Alonso would go to Mercedes and Hamilton to McLaren again.

In my opinion it's no coincidence that Hamilton has suffered far more car problems than German driver Rosberg. Rosberg isn't as marketable as Hamilton/Alonso/Vettel. Mercedes needed a marketable driver to increase brand awareness after Schumacher retired. Hamilton ticks all the boxes. BUT would Mercedes AMG want a German or a Britain to win a world championship???

Amigo, your talking nonsense & I'm a Hamilton fan. Reliability is all about luck & Hamilton's dodgy pits are more to do with Hamilton missing his marks, than Mercedes favouritism towards NR. Hamilton won four in a row, there were no complaints, now he's endured a tough spell, as drivers face during a long season & the accusations arise. NR had bad luck with safety car this weekend & Lauda backed Hamilton's decision to disobey orders, shows there is no favouritism & that bad luck happens to both, although admittedly LH has endured much worse. To be only 11 pts behind is something to be happy about, given the circumstances.

Yes I would agree.

If Mercedes had a preference it would be for the German driver to clinch the title but not to the extent where they will sabotage one of their own cars. Absolutely no way. Lewis has just had the bad luck but it may yet even itself out this season.

It is interesting to see what will happen at the end of the season at Mercedes. If Nico clinches the title this year and Lewis has niggling thoughts of favouritism at all it is not out of the question he'd move on and Vettel would be the one to replace him. However, if Lewis clinches the title then it will surely see Lewis stay put and perhaps be regarded as No.1 at the team. I'd still see Nico remaining at Mercedes whatever happens though.

For me in F1 at the moment we have three drivers with egos. By that I mean they are not drivers you could out alongside each other in a team as there would be too much clash of ambition, ego and personality. Those three drivers are Alonso, Vettel and Hamilton.

I thought bikes needed less room to manouevre than cars?

I would have thought for F1 races they could put some temporary barriers there, to stop drivers using it as a run-off area...at least I hope so, or its just giving them licence to run off the track.

He is merely trying to wrap his protege in cotton wool. Or perhaps Seb IS worn out now that he has a car that is not a pure dream to drive but that still doesn't add up as Alonso, Hamilton et al have had a stinker of a car to drive in recent seasons but we don't hear that excuse bandied around for them.

Surprised by this move, He's not even that good being dominated by Esteban Ocon in F3

Anyone know more info about Andre Lotterer potentially driving for Caterham this weekend?

Perhaps sponsorship has something to do with it? After all, that seems to be as important as talent these days.  Wink 

Either that or his dad is well connected?

Vergne might get a drive elsewhere I suspect. Showed enough vs Ricciardo, and no luck this season

Well in the main BBC article about this, Vergne did say he was already looking to next season. Probably Caterham or Marussia are his best bets...unless Lotus fancy getting shot of Maldonado.

A strong finish to this season wouldn't hurt his prospects...

Maldonado is confirmed for 2015 at Lotus. Vergne has been plagued unfortunately with issues, could end up at any of the lower teams, but it won't be enjoyable. He's had his chance.

Still not confirmed that Lotterer is replacing Kobayashi at Caterham this weekend, be great if he did. Great driver for Audi.

Vergne could and perhaps should catch on as a third driver somewhere up the grid.
