Lewis Hamilton does the dab in celebration as he wins the Formula One championship at the Hungarian Grand Prix, Sunday (July, 24).
For the first time this season, Hamilton takes the lead after cruising to break the record of five consecutive winnings out of six grand prixs.
A move tipped to be his hat-trick season.
Leading from the beginning of the race to the end, he overtook Mercedes team-mate, Nico Rosberg on the long-run to turn in at number one. This has moved him six points ahead of Rosberg.
Hamilton attributed his success at the Hungarian Grand Prix to starting right.
He said, “With the race the start was everything, and I got a good start. One of the Red Bulls was on the inside of me so I was pressured quite a lot in turn one.”
“Traffic was difficult today to navigate through, but it was amazing,” he concluded.
Hamilton, Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo and Mercedes’ Rosberg on the podium were the top three of the race.
Rosberg said after the race, “It was all down to the start and I lost out a little bit. Into turn one I had Daniel on the outside and Lewis on the inside so I ran out of space so I had to bail out of it.”
“I was happy to take Daniel back at turn two and then I was trying to put pressure on Lewis but it’s not possible on this track.”
Meanwhile, also a first time winner this season, Kimi Raikkonen is the DHL Fastest Lap Award winner #HungarianGP #F1
