F1 2017 - Hungarian GP


The Hungarian Grand Prix of the F1 2017 season in Budapest is all about letting this race gone insane from start to finish, much like every other race in this season, and in the case of two Red Bull drivers, it's all about the betrayal that led one of them bailed out from Budapest as when Max Verstappen hits his teammate Daniel Ricciardo as he understeers into Ricciardo's radiator. As a result, Ricciardo's out from the race and with that, Verstappen was slapped with a 10 second penalty and after pits, he dropped his position from 4th place to 5th.

Meanwhile, with Williams' Felipe Massa in sick leave, Paul di Resta covers his post but sadly, mechanical failures led him bailed out from the race after lap 63. Also out for some failure is Romain Grosjean from Haas.

Behind the misfortune comes Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel who nailed another win for this season and his second Hungarian GP win for his career. Not only that, this is Ferrari's first one-two finish since 2004 when he and Raikkonen finished the race together. Despite Vettel's steering woes on his car, he managed to endure his way to the top of the podium, whatever lays ahead. After Ferrari's one-two finish comes the Mercedes-AMG team when Valtteri Bottas placed 3rd and Lewis Hamilton placed 4th. Fernando Alonso from McLaren made a good weekend of their career with their 6th place finish.

Vettel can have his summer break with the 14-point lead against Hamilton, 202 to 188 but the race returns on Spa-Francorchamps on the 27th of August.
