He may have extended his lead but both Hamilton and Raikkonen took a chunk out of it, and their cars are starting to look pretty quick, especially if it stays dry so while extending his lead is good, he'll be wary of Lewis and Kimi.

Hungary is naturally a Mclaren track and it's very difficult to overtake, even Kimi could have won that in other track but that just "if" and senseless reasoning. But the fact still remain that Fernando has 40 point lead on a number 2 Redbull, and Hamilton is very inconsistent, he has a lot of pole this year but only won 2 races so far. The real title contenders for this year is Fernando, Vettel and maybe Kimi, if he could qualify better, just look at Kimi's result for that past 4 or 5 races, if he could just qualify at the first or second row all the time then he can be a frequent podium finisher.

@cris, What I'm seeing is a McLaren with upgrades that have worked. Hamilton is where Kimi is right now so unless something changes I have no reason to count out Hamilton as of yet. Is he a long shot? Of course, but so's Kimi. Not to mention the fact both are actually very close to the Red Bulls. So if they're in the title hunt, so are those 2.

considering the Ferrari just isn't fast enough it was a sensible drive by probably the best driver in the field. Webber hasn't got the balls to win the title although he is 2nd, Hamilton Kimi and Vettel are the only ones with any chance
