A hectic race at the Hungaroring began with a downpour before the lights went out. Drivers started on the intermediate tyres and spent the first few laps wondering when would be the right time to change to slicks. Marcus Ericsson helped, by crashed the Caterham into the barriers, bringing out the safety car. Most drivers came into the pit lane, except the top four who missed the opportunity and came in next time round. That dropped race leader Nico Rosberg down several places.

Before the safety car could disappear, Romain Grosjean also crashed, but eventually the action got going again. Nico Hülkenberg retired, and then Sergio Pérez also crashed, making a double DNF for Force India, and bringing out the safety car again. Kamui Kobayashi and Esteban Gutiérrez also retired before the end of the race.

Lewis Hamilton had made his way through the field from his pit lane start, and joined the fight for the lead, with Daniel Ricciardo and Fernando Alonso. The battles for position were tense until the very end of the race, with eventually Ricciardo getting the win for Red Bull, Alonso second and Hamilton third, with Rosberg having to settle for fourth place.
