Hungarian F1 Grand Prix 2013 – Budapest, Hungaroring

Lewis Hamilton finally got his race as right as his qualifying. He qualified on pole and he made sure he stayed there for the race and took his first race win for Mercedes. I guess we can say he made the right move going from McLaren, who’ve completely dropped off this season, to Mercedes.

Kimi Raikkonen was second after holding off a strong late challenge from Sebastian Vettel, who was third ahead of Red Bull teammate Mark Webber.

Hamilton’s first year with Mercedes has been tricky, and he came into the race with low expectations of victory despite securing his fourth pole this season and his third in a row.
