Hamilton late surge secures Hungary victory

04/08/2019

Lewis Hamilton secured a dramatic late victory over Max Verstappen with five laps remaining at the Hungary GP.

Lewis Hamilton snatched a Hungarian Grand Prix victory away from Max Verstappen, taking first place just three laps from the end thanks to a surprise strategy.

Verstappen started on poll and looked set to lead from start to finish with 21 laps to go. However, Mercedes caught the Red Bull cold by diving into the pits and changing on to medium compound tyres that gave Hamilton the advantage.

This gave Hamilton the grip he needed to set a new pace and catch Verstappen, completing the dramatic overtake with just three laps to go as the Dutchman ran out of rubber. This was Hamilton's seventh Hungarian Grand Prix win.

Elsewhere, it was a disappointing weekend for Ferrari despite P3 and P4 finishes for Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc. They just couldn't keep up with the impressive pace of Mercedes and Red Bull out in front.
