The Hungarian Grand Prix is the second most difficult track to overtake after Monaco. The high temperatures at this time of the year have put extra demand on the cars and their drivers.
Hamilton said on Saturday that it would be a miracle if he won the Hungarian Grand Prix starting from the pole position. He previously won the HGP three times with McLaren (in 2007, 2009 and 2012).
After receiving the trophy this year, he said: “I’m very surprised by the victory. I’m grateful to the team and the Mercedes board (…).”
The Hungarian Grand Prix is a motor race which is held annually. The first was held on June 21, 1936, but politics and the war stopped this competition for 15 years. Since 1986 the race has been a round of the Formula One World Championship. This year, the Hungarian Grand Prix has signed a contract extension and as a consequence it will stay on the calendar until 2021.
This year, the next race is the Belgian Grand Prix, on August 25.
