Lewis Hamilton led from start to finish to win the Hungarian Grand Prix by less than a second from a charging Kimi Raikkonen on Monday, according to Eurosport. Hamilton maintained his lead off the start from pole and although Raikkonen closed the gap to within less than half a second after his second stop, Hamilton held out for his 19th race victory in Formula One. Lewis Hamilton, speaking on the podium after winning the Hungarian Grand Prix, according to BBC: “An amazing day, fantastic work by all the team and the fans have been fantastic. Thank you for having us. I am looking forward to the continuation of the championship. A long way to go and a lot of work to do but we have shown we can compete. It is very, very close but we are going to give it all we can.” Lotus driver Kimi Raikkonen who finished second: “We came second, it’s not enough but we had some problems with the Kers. We had some speed and we’ll try to win the next race. At least we are up there all the time and we put ourselves in a good position but we are not happy until we win.”. Lotus driver Romain Grosjean who finished third: “It was a fantastic race and we were fighting for the win but we wanted to get back onto the podium with the two cars and that’s what we did. It was a tough race but we enjoyed it and I hope next time we will get the win.”
