His success also continued the recent form of British drivers at the race, with six of the last eight Hungarian races being won by either Hamilton or a compatriot.

“This is probably one of the most important wins of my career with my new team,” he said. “I wasn’t expecting this. Driving for Mercedes is a real privilege and I’m very proud to be part of the team and hope there are more wins to come.” MORE
