Lewis Hamilton wins Hungarian Grand Prix

After all the shenanigans in the pits during qualifying, which saw teammate Fernando Alonso relegated to sixth on the grid, Lewis Hamilton eased his way to victory in Sunday’s Hungarian Grand Prix.

We understand that Alonso has been told by team chief Ron Dennis that he’s free to leave McLaren at the end of the season.

Hamilton has now opened an eight point lead in the Drivers’ Championship ahead of the Spaniard.

In the race itself, which he led from start to finish, Hamilton, just 22, showed a steadiness of nerve from the moment the lights went out all the way to the chequered flag.

Through the 70 lap race, he had Kimi Raikkonen’s Ferrari in his mirrors waiting for a slip that would allow him to pass. It didn’t come. Less than a second apart for most of the race, it was a real test of concentration and belief for Hamilton, which he passed with flying colours. At the finish, the margin was just 0.7seconds.

Six races left, and Hamilton still looks good for the title in his opening F1 season.

Lewis Hamilton in pole after Alonso penalized

Is Lewis Hamilton’s dismal run of luck improving at last? Yet another dramatic scenario unfolded yesterday in the qualifying stage of today’s Hungarian Grand Prix.

The Times (London) reports : “Fernando Alonso was sensationally stripped of his pole position for the Hungarian Grand Prix late last night and saw it handed to McLaren teammate Lewis Hamilton. The Spaniard was docked five places on today’s starting grid after he deliberately held up the emerging British superstar in yesterday’s final qualifying session.”

It seems that McLaren will also be stripped of any points won in the constructors’ world championship from today’s race.
