Welcome to F1Minute - Hamilton breezes to Hungarian Grand Prix victory.

The Hungarian Grand Prix faltered into life with two formation laps after Michael Schumacher stalled on the grid. The Mercedes driver was pushed to the pitlane, where he started the race - although he was then given a drive through penalty for speeding in said pitlane, and he later retired from the race.

Lewis Hamilton led the way from pole position, only challenged briefly by Romain Grosjean at the start of the race and Kimi Räikkönen towards the end. The two Lotus drivers finished on the podium alongside the McLaren driver, with Kimi pipping Romain to second after a fierce battle out of the pits.

Further back, Pastor Maldonado finished 13th after completing a drive through penalty for bashing into the side of Paul di Resta during an overtaking move.

Meanwhile, Jenson Button finished sixth, disappointed with the way his three stop strategy worked out, but both Red Bull drivers also completed three stops with Sebastian Vettel coming in fourth and Mark Webber in eighth.
