Vettel Extends Formula 1 Lead In Dramatic Hungarian Grand Prix
Leave a comment | | July 31, 2017 12:16 PM

In yet another dramatic finish in the Formula 1 race at the Hungarian Grand Prix over the weekend, Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel extended his advantage on the drivers’ standings of the Formula 1 season to 14 points by claiming victory in Hungary.

The German who saw his lead cut to just one point after falling short at the British Grand Prix, gained momentum over main rival Lewis Hamilton of the Mercedes who missed out on the podium by surrendering his spot to Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas.

It looked like a mechanical problem could prove costly again for the German, but Vettel managed to stay clear of Ferrari team-mate Kimi Raikkonen to top the podium on his 50th start for the Italian constructor, despite the Finn repeatedly hinting over team radio he felt he should have been let through due to his superior pace.

With Valtteri Bottas failing to attack the Ferrari duo he was ordered to allow Hamilton past, but the Briton fared no better and, in a show of remarkable grace, slowed down on the final lap to allow his team-mate back into third.
