Ten of the best pictures which tell the story of the Hungarian Grand Prix weekend.
Lewis Hamilton, Friday
Everything went swimmingly for Lewis Hamilton during practice – he was fastest in all three sessions. Unfortunately his luck deserted him when qualifying began – a fire at the rear of his Mercedes condemned him to starting from the pit lane.
Pastor Maldonado, Friday
Pastor Maldonado heads out of the Lotus garage during practice.
Esteban Gutierrez, Sunday
A rain shower shortly before the race meant the track was very wet as drivers began their pre-race installation laps.
Start, Hungarian Grand Prix
The conditions were not too wet to prevent a standing start, but with spray everywhere Nico Rosberg had just about the only good view of the first corner.
Jenson Button, Hungarian Grand Prix
Jenson Button was best-placed to benefit from an early Safety Car period but McLaren made the mistake of giving him a second set of intermediate tyres while the rest of the field opted for slicks.
Nico Hulkenberg, Sebastian Vettel, Hungarian Grand Prix
At the restart Nico Hulkenberg made an opportunistic pass around the outside of Sebastian Vettel at turn two. But three corners later he skidded off the track, undoing his hard work, and a few laps after that went out of the race following a collision with his team mate.
Jules Bianchi, Hungarian Grand Prix
The battle of the Marussias was won by Jules Bianchi by less than a second over team mate Max Chilton, despite Bianchi losing considerable time due to floor damage on the right-hand side of his car after being hit by Pastor Maldonado.
Kimi Raikkonen, Pastor Maldonado, Hungarian Grand Prix
From his worst starting position of the year so far – sixteenth – Kimi Raikkonen claimed his best finish yet – sixth. He passed Maldonado on lap 43 after his final pit stop.
Lewis Hamilton, Daniel Ricciardo, Hungarian Grand Prix
Daniel Ricciardo took two attempts to get past Hamilton on the outside of turn two. Once he made it stick, he went after Fernando Alonso to claim his second victory of the year.
Daniel Ricciardo, Hungarian Grand Prix
Ricciardo said his second career win felt as good as his first did in Canada earlier this year.

After reading this a thought “How did Chilton manage that??”
But reading the rest of the text made me realise that Bianchi just brought balance to the force for once!

I think Maldonado even caused Bianchi to pit.

That one of the Sauber looks like a screenshot from a videogame.

Yeah perhaps it was over processed in Photoshop or something afterwards

Great shot of Ricciardo and his team at the end there.

Amaizing how much wetter the astroturf was ! Clearly seen in the one with JB’s McLaren.
Another reason to avoid that sort of run offs? they are incredibly hazardous in the wet !

Just look at the front wing of Ricciardo in the last shot… Truly Mach3 razor

if a wet race starts behind the safety car, what is the situation for those who start from the pitlane? because the race starts when the SC leads everyone off, so if cars starting from the pitlane didnt join the back, they’d be a lap down when the SC comes in?
