A point for fastest lap: Hamilton (Mercedes)
Race Grand Prix of Hungary has started after a rain, so the pilots chose an intermediate type of rubber that promised fun. Own, the fun began during the trial when the pilots left to build on the lattice. On a wet track Max Verstappen lost control and flew into the barriers.

From the first row started the Mercedes, and from the second racing point. Lewis Hamilton went from the start, but Valtteri Bottas start failed, even made a false start and dropped to 6th place. Verstappen had a good start, to break into the top 3 and both Ferrari’s, rising into the top 5. While the leader of the Mercedes went into the lead, some pilots decided to change tires to slicks. In particular, Bottas, Vettel and LeClair.
In the end, Pete went literally all at once, but because there has been confusion. However, after all the stops Hamilton calmly kept the lead with a separation in 10 seconds from Verstappen. Unfortunately for intrigue, normal rain has not started, and Hamilton won with an incredible advantage. At the end of the pilot even allowed himself to call for a free pit stop to replace tires and get an additional point for fastest lap.
But 2nd place, despite problems at the start, took Verstappen. Max managed to keep behind Valtteri Bottas, who frankly failed the stage and missed the lead in the overall standings.
Of the rest, select a good 4th place lance Stroll to the racing point. The loonie capitalized on the start from the second row.
