No one could stop the British driver on the Hungaroring asphalt: he came out in pole position and saw the checkered flag with a good advantage over Verstappen.
Lewis Hamilton had almost no competition in the Hungarian Grand Prix who won from start to finish this Sunday. Either way, the Brit said it was one of his “favorite races” in the Formula One.
The Mercedes driver converted the pole position number 90 of his career in his eighth triumph on the Hungaroring asphalt, thus equaling the number of victories Michael Schumacher accumulated at the French Grand Prix.
“Honestly, it was one of my favorite races I have ever run. While I was just ahead in the race, it was a totally different challenge,” said Hamilton after the race.
“Of course we had a great pace, but it couldn’t have been done without the guys who have been working, great pit stops, great strategy, and right up to the end it was perfect to put the new tire on and get an extra point,” he added. .
After finishing fourth in the Austrian Grand Prix that opened the 2020 F1 season, Hamilton had the next two events overwhelmingly.
“I think the first race consisted of several different shots that I might not have been prepared for, but I refocused and the last two were fantastic. We were on point throughout this weekend, so we need to keep it up.”
