Lewis Hamilton took over the lead in the drivers standings after taking a comfortable win in the Hungarian Grand Prix on Sunday.
The Englishman passed pole-sitter Nico Rosberg at the start of the race, having got a better getaway from second on the grid.
Rosberg had to settle for the runner-up spot, despite staying within two seconds of his Mercedes teammate for the entire duration of the race.
Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo took the final spot on the podium after a rocketing start from third came to naught, as Rosberg managed to regain position within a brilliant move on the outside of turn 2.
Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel was fourth, an early first stop allowed the German to jump the second Red Bull of Max Verstappen.
The Dutchman, however, managed to fend off Kimi Raikkonen, who was equipped with faster supersoft tyres in the latter part of the race.
McLaren arguably enjoyed their most competitive outive of the season with Fernando Alonso holding on to seventh place, ahead of the Toro Rosso of Carlos Sainz.
After a nightmare result in Silverstone, Williams returned to points with Valtteri Bottas finishing in ninth place.
Force India’s Nico Hulkenberg collected the final championship point in 10th place, taking over the spot from Jolyon Palmer who spun his Renault and subsequently fell down the order.
