The 2018 Hungarian Grand Prix (formally the Formula 1 Rolex Magyar Nagydíj 2018) was a Formula One motor race held on 29 July 2018 at the Hungaroring in Mogyoród, Hungary. The race was the twelfth round of the 2018 Formula One World Championship and marked the 34th running of the Hungarian Grand Prix, and the 33rd time the race had been run as a World Championship event since the inaugural season in 1950.

Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton entered the round with a 17-point lead over Sebastian Vettel in the Drivers' Championship, and extended it to 24 points. In the World Constructors' Championship, Mercedes led Ferrari by 8 points before the race, and they further extended their lead to 10 points.[2]

Report[edit]

Race[edit]

Hamilton led away from pole and got away well with Bottas in close pursuit. Max Verstappen retired on lap 5 following an engine failure, with a brief virtual safety car period to remove his car. Hamilton pitted from the lead on lap 25, however Vettel stayed out and didn't make his pit stop until lap 39, and was unable to get out ahead of Bottas. By lap 65, Vettel and Räikkönen had caught up to Bottas on fresher tyres. Vettel went for an overtake at turn 2 and moved into second place, but Bottas made contact trying to defend, damaging his front wing and letting Räikkönen through. Three laps later, Daniel Ricciardo attempted an overtake on Bottas, but the two drivers also made contact and picked up damage. Bottas gave the position up on the final lap, finishing in fifth. He was later handed a 10-second time penalty for causing a collision, however this did not change his finishing position. Hamilton won the race, seventeen seconds ahead of Vettel, with Räikkönen finishing in third.
