Hungarian Grand Prix 2015 Formula 1
Sunday concluded the Hungarian Grand Prix Formula 1 with a crazy and unexpected career that a lot has happened and has had a podium for which few, if any, would have bet. At the top has risen Sebastian Vettel given Ferrari its second win of the season in a great setting from which surprised the Mercedes drivers.
Red Bull has also achieved a great result because Daniil Kvyat and Daniel Ricciardo were second and third. Max Verstappen has achieved the best result of his young career as 4th ahead of Fernando Alonso who has achieved his best position of the year. Behind them could have stayed Carlos Sainz but the Spanish Toro Rosso had mechanical problems and that he was deprived of adding many points. Roberto Merhi itself ended in 15th.
We hungaroring expected to see a comfortable victory Lewis Hamilton but he and Nico Rosberg failed at the start and were surprised by Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen who took command of the race. Hamilton had a little off track and dropped to 10th place so in less than one revolution changed his entire career because he played trace on a circuit where overtaking is not easy as he showed Felipe Massa was in front of him during a dozen laps.
Nico Hulkenberg and Fernando Alonso made a good start while Daniel Ricciardo recovering lost positions later with brilliant overtaking to Bottas and Hulkenberg. Carlos Sainz was a couple of positions of the points but his first pit stop he lost his Alonso and Verstappen position when standing about six seconds, three more than usual.
Vettel had a fairly placid career because it opened a good lead over Raikkonen who, in turn, was ahead of Rosberg who could not hunt down the Ferrari. The brace of Ferrari seemed served but the power unit Raikkonen began to fail so the Finn had to retire in the final part of the race was absolutely crazy for the amount of touches, sanctions and overtaking we saw on track.
That excitement came largely from the output of the safety car after Nico Hulkenberg pass over his own front wing filling the track with many small pieces of carbon fiber. It seemed that the virtual safety car would be sufficient but in the end the commissioners saw that the track is too dirty and decided to make the safety car with the subsequent actual reunification of pilots when was the last stint.
As the retired safety Rosberg ahead of Raikkonen whose career and made no sense because it would be overtaken by a pilot after another. Behind them the men of Red Bull who fought to enter the podium and Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas were. Among Hamilton, Bottas and Ricciardo was a tough battle even beyond the limits of the runway which resulted in a few taps in which the front wings of Hamilton and Ricciardo and Bottas puncture of breaking. Everyone had to go through the box and later so did Rosberg who touched Ricciardo causing a puncture in his Mercedes that cost him second place.
These problems benefited those who escaped them as Vettel won smoothly and Kvyat which was placed in second place . Ricciardo rose to third in the final part and also took Verstappen these problems, Alonso and Sainz were much higher than they expected. Unfortunately Sainz fell in the area of privilege by mechanical problems on his Toro Rosso but Alonso and his McLaren endured in fifth place ahead of Hamilton who was also banned but again could be traced from outside the points to sixth position.
At the end Rosberg was eighth because he lost much time due to the puncture so he went Hungaroring losing points from Hamilton when it seemed she could reach him or placed very close because he came to shoot the second when English was out of the points. After the race Hamilton has 202 points 181 and 160 of Rosberg Sebastian Vettel is third.
