F1 2013 Alternative Championships – Round 10/19: Hungary

THE 2013 Hungarian Grand Prix was Lewis Hamilton first win for Mercedes, making him the first Englishman to win a race for the Silver Arrows since Sir Stirling Moss at the 1955 British Grand Prix at Aintree.

The 2008 World Champion has now won around the Hungaroring four times, tying the all-time winning record for the track with Michael Schumacher.

Remarkably, each time Hamilton has won in Hungary, fellow world champion Kimi Räikkönen has finished second.

This was Mercedes-Benz’s 350th Grand Prix as an engine supplier too. They had a better anniversary than Adrian Sutil, who retired from his 100th Grand Prix after just 19 of the 70 laps.

Pastor Maldonado finally managed to score William’s first point of the season by finishing tenth.

Just before the race, Bernie Ecclestone signed a deal which will keep Hungary on the F1 calendar until 2022.
