Hamilton wins Hungarian GP

?Lewis Hamilton tops the drivers' championship standings for the first time this season after cruising to victory at the Hungarian Grand Prix on Sunday.

The world champion passed his Mercedes' team-mate Nico Rosberg at Turn One and was in control from that point on to secure a record fifth victory at the Hungaroring.

Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo held off Sebastian Vettel for third, with the second Red Bull of Max Verstappen in fifth and Vettel's Ferrari team-mate Kimi Raikkonen close behind in sixth.

McLaren's Fernando Alonso took seventh, while his team-mate Jenson Button suffered the race's only retirement following hydraulic problems.

"It was all down to the start in the end,” Rosberg, who now trails Hamilton by six points in the standings, said.

“With Daniel on one side and Lewis on the other I was out of space and that was it really. It is not possible to pass on this track.”

Hamilton agrees with Rosberg that the Hungaroring is not the easiest track to overtake on.

"The start was everything, I got a good start and one of the Red Bulls was in the inside of me so I was pressured a lot into Turn One,” he said.

"This is a great result for the team - what a day.

"Traffic was difficult today to navigate through but it was amazing."
