Lewis Hamilton hopes swap doesn't cost him title

Daniel Ricciardo in action for Red Bull

"I'm over the moon, that was a really hard race", said the victor, who had to wrestle with a skewed steering wheel on a sweltering afternoon at the Hungaroring and had no room for error.

Mercedes' teammate Bottas tried to put up a fight but Ferrari had already established their dominance.

The German overcame steering problems with his Ferrari to finish ahead of teammate Kimi Raikkonen for his first race victory since Monaco.

Valtteri Bottas has thanked teammate Lewis Hamilton for letting him back through on the final lap of the Hungarian Grand Prix.

Vettel held on for his 46th career win, while Raikkonen expertly defended his position for a Ferrari 1-2.

Daniel Ricciardo's had more success at the Hungaroring than at any track on the calendar since his first race for Red Bull in 2014 and even won the Grand Prix that year.

At turn two of the opening lap, the two Red Bulls collided when Verstappen over-steered into his teammate.

The situation for the two Mercedes was slightly different, with Bottas agreeing to move over and let Hamilton in to third to try and take on the Ferraris, promising if he failed he would cede the place back before the end of the race.

The Toro Rosso of Carlos Sainz completed the top 10 while Paul di Resta produced a creditable display after stepping out of the commentary booth to replace the unwell Felipe Massa, qualifying in 19th position.

It only feels like yesterday that the 2017 Formula One season kicked off in Melbourne, alas the mid-point of the championship has been reached as we hit the Hungarian Grand Prix. I like this track a lot and it's been really enjoyable.

Meanwhile, Hamilton had dropped a place in his Mercedes, although he was poised to overtake Verstappen because of the latter's sanction.

After Hamilton's comfortable homecoming victory at Silverstone, the Briton was expected to take charge of the world title race.

Verstappen led the race during the pit-stops before he finally pitted after 42 laps and, after serving his penalty, rejoined in fifth. McLaren-Honda temporarily regained a smile with seventh and eighth places on the grid of Spaniard Fernando Alonso and Belgian Stoffel Vandoorne.

Paul Di Resta was called in to drive Felipe Massa's Williams vehicle after the Brazilian driver was too unwell to take his seat. "We're just hoping that we can be on our toes to react to whatever is thrown at us in the next races".
