Lewis Hamilton has now won as many races as the last British driver to win the world championship before him – Damon Hill.
Hamilton catches Hill
Hamilton’s 22nd career victory in the Hungarian Grand Prix means he has now won as many races as 1996 world champion Damon Hill.
It was Hamilton’s fourth win at the Hungaroring, where Hill claimed his first Formula One win 20 years ago.
Williams finally score
It’s taken them ten races, but Williams have finally scored their first point of 2013. Their smallest ever haul in a full season was two years ago, when they scored just five points.
Sutil hits a hundred
Force India driver Adrian Sutil marked his 100th grand prix start by donning a special helmet and making a belated first appearance on social network Twitter:
Unfortunately his race ended after 19 laps with hydraulic failure.
Raikkonen on a roll…
In contrast Kimi Raikkonen just keeps bringing home the points for Lotus. This was his 27th straight finish in the top ten, increasing his record.
Raikkonen’s second place was also the 150th podium appearance for a Finnish driver. Only Britain, France, Germany, Brazil and Italy have accrued more podium finishes.
Exactly half of Finland’s podium finishes were achieved by Raikkonen, who made his 75th appearance in Hungary.
