Lewis Hamilton, Mercedes, Hungaroring, 2014Three problems stood in the way of Nico Rosberg converting pole position into victory at the Hungaroring.

The first of them did by far the most damage. Marcus Ericsson’s lap eight crash was a heavy frontal impact which led to the Safety Car and Medical Car being sent out onto the circuit immediately. Unfortunately for Rosberg – along with Valtteri Bottas, Sebastian Vettel and Fernando Alonso – it happened just as they were passing the pit lane entrance, so they missed the chance to pit immediately.

When the race restarted on lap 13 Rosberg was fourth ahead of Alonso (eighth) and Lewis Hamilton (thirteenth). Both ended the race in front of Rosberg, mainly thanks to his second problem. This was that his pace immediately after the restart, when most drivers were on slicks tyres on a damp track, wasn’t as good as his rivals’.

Hamilton immediately pounced on Bottas, Esteban Gutierrez and Nico Hulkenberg, then profited from Sergio Perez going off to gain four places in half a lap. At the same time Alonso got past Vettel. But Rosberg made a poor restart and was passed by Kevin Magnussen’s intermediate-shod McLaren.

The next time by Rosberg tried to re-pass Magnussen but couldn’t – and Jean-Eric Vergne’s Toro Rosso capitalised. And while Rosberg braked cautiously for turn ten Alonso zapped around the outside of him. Now only Vettel’s Red Bull separated pole sitter Rosberg from Hamilton, who had started in the pit lane.

Rosberg toiled for 19 laps trying to pass Vergne, to no avail. Meanwhile Alonso pulled out a four-second advantage over the Mercedes. When Rosberg pitted Hamilton took his place on the tail of the Toro Rosso – and immediately passed Vergne at his first attempt.

The final nail in the coffin for Rosberg’s victory hopes was, of course, when he got stuck behind his team mate later in the race. Given his fresher tyres, this likely cost Rosberg a few seconds, which meant that at the end of the race he simply ran out of laps to make a move stick on Hamilton.

But of course Hamilton appreciated this, and was wise enough to ignore Mercedes’ entreaties for him to move aside. It was the third and final blow to Rosberg’s hopes of winning – though the two which preceded it did more damage.

  1. I told my friend mid race that Rosberg was looking very uncomfortable. We thought it was because of that smoke coming out of his rear left tyre, maybe there was a problem of some sort, but no. It was just lack of pace. In the end, he lost position on his own, not from strategy and that must hurt quite badly…

  2. Lewis’ tyre deg wouldn’t have been helped by the damaged front wing, I think he drove a better race than most of us realise. Nico getting stuck behind Vergne cost him more than the other thing everyone’s on about.

  3. Look at Alonso’s position gain after the SC came in on lap 13.

    What a beast of a driver.

  4. Conclusion from the above graph: put Hamilton on 2 soft stints instead of 1 medium stint, see him overtake Alonso during the first of those stints and (almost) close the gap to Ricciardo, then pit again for softs in Ricciardo’s wake, easily re-overtake Alonso and then go on to win by overtaking Ricciardo?

    I think Mercedes misjudged the big speed advantage the softs offered over the mediums, while lasting reasonably well too.

    1. One stint on softs would have been enough to get the victory for Hamilton and it would have moved him out of Rosbergs way enabling him a guaranteed 3rd and a possibility of 2nd.
