Lewis Hamilton wins Hungary Grand Prix 2012

Lewis Hamilton wins Hungarian Grand Prix 2012

Kimi Raikkonen exerted tremendous pressure on Lewis Hamilton. However, Lewis Hamilton battled to keep back Kimi Raikkonen and won the Formula One Hungary Grand Prix 2012. It was indeed justice for him as all through the weekend including the practice and qualifying, Lewis Hamilton was the fastest driver on the grid. A very calm and controlled race under tremendous pressure ensured that Lewis Hamilton won the F1 Hungarian Grand Prix 2012.

Romain Grosjean was P2 during the initial laps and was never very far behind Lewis Hamilton. However, he had to settle for the third place. Sebastian Vettel was P4. Fernando Alonso finished at 5th position, followed by Jenson Button at 6th, Bruono Senna at 7th, Mark Webber at 8th, Felipe Massa at 9th.

Disaster stuck Michael Schumacher as his car stalled and other cars were asked to do another formation lap. Two formation laps had not happened for a long long time. As the other cars went on for the second formation lap, Michael Schumacher's Mercedes car was pushed to the pit lane and it was started. The second disaster for Michael Schumacher stuck immediately when they changed the strategy and after the first lap he came to the pits to change his tyres for a long run. Unfortunately, he was found to be speeding during the pitlane and handed over a drive-through penalty. Though he later overtook the backmarkers and was running at 18th position, he retired from the race in lap 60 finishing a miserable race.

His teammate Nico Rosberg finished 10th.

Positions P11-P22 are as follows:
Nico Hulkenberg
Paul Di Resta
Pastor Maldonado
Sergio Perez
Daniel Ricciardo
Jules Vergne
Heiki Kovalainen
Kamui Kobayashi
Vitaly Petrov
Charles Pic
Timo Glock
Pedro de la Rosa

Narain Karthikeyan retired from the race in lap 60 out of the 69 lap race after sustaining left suspension damage breaking the reliability record of the poorly funded HRT team.
