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