Lewis Hamilton coasts to Hungarian Grand Prix win

Lewis Hamilton coasts to Hungarian Grand Prix win

Lewis Hamilton dealt another blow to Sebastian Vettel by winning the Hungarian Grand Prix and extending his championship lead.

Mercedes boss Toto Wolff used the "wingman" description while praising the Finnish driver for finishing second behind Lewis Hamilton in Hungary.

From the start, with Hamilton in the lead, Vettel managed to pass Raikkonen for third, and as Hamilton made his single pit stop on lap 25 Vettel took the lead and ran for another 15 laps. The racing action will resume with free practice 1 in Belgium on August 24 while there is still no clarity over who will lift the driver's championship at the end of the season.

"Fortunately I did enough work early on while I had the opportunity, while he was behind Valtteri". The two Mercedes, Hamilton and Bottas lead the way.

"But I wanted to still get him back on-track as opposed to waiting for a penalty".

Newcastle United Confirm Signing of Japanese International Yoshinori Muto
It appears to us, the club have gotten a decent price for the Serbian striker, now let's hope the cash is spent wisely. Gayle struggled for goals on Newcastle's return to the Premier League, scoring six in 38 appearances.

"His tyres were getting worse and worse and I was quite confident I could get him". He broke his front wing but Vettel somehow continued without damage or a puncture, keeping Raikkonen at bay in the process to finish a distant second behind Hamilton.

"I think we could have the catching bit but not really the overtake".

On current performance, Vettel should to be going into the four-week gap before the Belgian Grand Prix leading the championship.

Raikkonen, without water during the race after Ferrari forgot to connect the bottle, made two stops and agreed third - his fifth successive podium finish - was the best he could have hoped for in the circumstances.

"Compared to a year ago, we lost the championship I think because our auto wasn't quick enough to be a match in the final part of the season, despite what happened with the DNFs". Red Bull team principal Christian Horner blamed the Renault engine as being substandard.

Iran policy unaffected by Trump’s negotiation offer to Tehran
In May, the USA abandoned a deal which curbed Iran's nuclear activities in return for the lifting of sanctions . Also on Tuesday, the USA president said he has "a feeling" the Iranians will "be talking to us pretty soon".

"But I don't think we should overestimate anything just because we won on a supposed Mercedes route", Vettel said, referring to Silverstone.

"We came here knowing Ferrari would be really quick this weekend, so to come out with these points, we'll definitely take it as a bonus", said Hamilton.

"Absolutely not. I think it's far too early and you've seen the ups and downs we've had from this year, you've been ahead by some points and behind some points", he said. Even with 20 laps to go, he felt comfortable and in control. "What matters to me is that we are constantly developing, and we are".

Raikkonen said Ferrari needed to improve and "tidy up" a few things to ensure it maximises the speed of its 2018 package, which has been quicker than Mercedes two weekends in a row but failed to turn that into victory. We expected damage limitation, rather than taking the points.

As somebody who knows and likes him, I would give him the benefit of the doubt.
