At the start of the GP Lewis Hamilton was leading into Turn 1. Vettel tried to hold of Grosjean on the outside of the track.
Rosberg meanwhile, who started from 4th position had contact with Massa’s frontwing at Turn 5.
Rosberg had to go wide and settled for 12th postion, then he overtoke some cars bringing him to 7th but then he retired 10 laps before the end of the race due a engine failure.
Hamilton was leading ahead of Vettel and Grosjean until the first pitstops came around the laps 9-13.
Vettel already had to defend his 2nd position against Grosjean and surprisingly struggled with the handling of the car.
After Vettel made his first pitstop, he came back behind McLaren driver Jenson Button, who held him off for 33 laps, what was a quite amazing perfomance from the brit.
So Vettel held up Grosjean, and some laps later Alonso was becoming faster, so it became a four way battle for 2nd.
Vettel finally got past Button for 2nd and Grosjean was also trying to pass Button, but with contact resulted to a penalty after the race. After Grosjeans 2nd pitstop, he was behind Massa.
Grosjean was much faster than the Ferrari driver and tried a brave outside move into the blind Turn 5 corner, which was succesfull but illegal. He had all four wheels off the track and he was over the line, so he gained an advantage over Massa.
The frenchman got a drive through penalty and later made his third pitstop, he ended up in 6th position.
His teammate Raikönnen however had a fantastic strategy and despite the hot weather there he managed his tires very well and made only two pitstops.
So he came up to 2nd, but Vettel was close behind him and tried a ”Grosjean move” on the outside of Turn 5.
But Raikkönnen defended and kept his 2nd place until the end. Webber had a great race, coming from 10th on the grid after his bad luck in Qualifying to 4th in the race.
Hamilton controlled his lead and won the Hungarian GP after 70 laps. It was his first GP win of the season and the third for Mercedes AMG Petronas.
Sutil had a horrible 100th GP, he had problems starting his car again at his first pitstop and had to retire.
Williams meanwhile scored their first points of the season with Maldonado finishing 10th.
Teammate Bottas had to retire after an engine failure.
The next race of the Formula 1 World Championship is on the 25th of August for the Belgium GP at Spa-Francorchamps.
