Polesitter Rosberg lost his lead off the line in Hungary, allowing Hamilton to move ahead and take first place and the race victory. The pair were joined on the podium by Daniel Ricciardo, who faced stiff competition from Sebastian Vettel, but held on to claim third place. Meanwhile the other pair of Max Verstappen and Kimi Räikkönen were also scrapping, in a more aggressive fight that saw the pair collide just briefly.

There was just one retirement from the race, but it was an epic one. Jenson Button found his McLaren picked up a brake problem which he was advised about over the radio. He was then handed a penalty for the out-of-bounds radio traffic, before his car finally gave up – and so did he.
