Shock Winner at the Hungarian GP

It's perhaps the best Formula 1 season in more than a decade - with two teams battling it out for the title.

Silverstone produced the drama in front of a packed house - and the gap between Max Verstappen and four-time defending champion (and seven-time overall) champion Lewis Hamilton is just eight points.

The Hungarian Grand Prix is the final race up next before the summer break, where Hamilton could reclaim the Championship lead.

Latest - Ocon Wins Chaotic Hungarian GP

After a lap 1, turn 1 disaster that saw multple cars retire and other damaged, Esteban Ocon came out on top in the Hungarian GP.

Valteri Bottas apparently forgot which pedal was his brakes as he heavily shunted Lando Norris across turn one, clearning out every car except for Lewis Hamilton. The race was red-flagged controversially after many teams had already pitted to deal with the damage.

A standing start was then ordered and Verstappen was unfortunately unable to climb above 10th as the body of his car suffered ireperable damage, slowing him down. Mercedes tried a risky strategy on tyres which meant Hamilton was at the back of the pack and had to work his way up to his final position of 3rd.
