After a day filled with emotions, Lewis Hamilton took the pole and the victory at the Hungarian Grand Prix.

Lewis Hamilton wins the Hungarian Grand Prix Lewis Hamilton won the Hungarian Grand Prix, after the stewards placed him on the pole position, punishing Fernando Alonso for his misconduct on Saturday. Kimi Raikkonen was pressuring Hamilton throughout the entire race, looking to take advantage of the situation and pile up points for Ferrari.

 During the qualifier on Saturday, Fernando Alonso slowed down Lewis Hamilton in the pit to take the pole position. But the officials at the Hungarian GP punished both Alonso, by sending him five grids down, and McLaren, by announcing that the constructor will not benefit from the points of this Formula-1 race.

 But Lewis Hamilton proved 0.7 seconds faster than Raikkonen, and Ferrari took only 8 points, after Felipe Massa finished 13th. Nick Heidfeld with BMW took the third place and Fernando Alonso was fourth 44.8 seconds behind his McLaren teammate. BMW snatched 4 extra points when Robert Kubica finished 5th.

 But the whole pit-stop ordeal seems to have driven the McLaren-Mercedes teammates even further apart. According to BBC UK, Fernando Alonso may be looking for another team. Rumours that the Spaniard will seek an early release from his contract have been around for a while (since Lewis Hamilton started winning almost all the Formula-1 races), but now it is obvious that tensions in the McLaren camp are growing stronger. According to BBC, the BMW team is the most likely destination for Fernando Alonso, if he leaves McLaren.

The top 10 at the Hungarian Grand Prix:

1 Lewis Hamilton McLaren-Mercedes
