Hamilton all the way in Hungary

6:29 am on 30 July 2012

Lewis Hamilton dominated this morning's Hungarian Grand Prix from pole position, holding off fierce challenges from the Lotus drivers Kii Raikkonen and Romain Grosjean to claim his second win of a season that had threatened to fizzle out.

Double world champion Sebastian Vettel was fourth for Red Bull, and Fernando Alonso was fifth, enough for the Spaniard to increase his lead at the top of the standings going into the one month break.

With 164 points, Alonso is 40 points ahead of Mark Webber, who was eighth in his Red Bull for the second race in a row, Vettel is another two points back in third place and Hamilton is up to fourth, 47 points behind Alonso.
