Britain's Jenson Button
wins the F1 2011 Hungarian Grand Prix
and marks his 200th F1 race in style.
Button eventually finished 3.5 seconds up on Sebastian Vettel, after a great race in mixed conditions.
Vettel led initially at the start, until he ran wide in the damp conditions on lap 5 and Lewis Hamilton
seized the initiative. Hamilton then remained out front and was looking strong until a rain shower in the final third of the race proved his undoing.
Hamilton spun at the chicane and when he rejoined he impeded Paul di Resta, who had to go off track to avoid the McLaren. The off also allowed Button to close back up – and take the lead.
As the rain increased though, Button slipped back to second and Lewis was back in front.
However Hamilton then opted to stop for intermediate tyres on lap 52, a decision that ultimately proved wrong as the rain eased off and he had to make another stop. The stewards also opted to penalise him after reviewing what happened with di Resta and the drive-through penalty added to his woe.
Fernando Alonso thus took the final place on the podium, with Hamilton charging back up from sixth after his misadventures to fourth at the flag, passing both Mark Webber
and Felipe Massa, who came home fifth and sixth respectively.
di Resta meanwhile was seventh at the finish, his best result thus far, followed by Toro Rosso's Sebastien Buemi
and the Mercedes of Nico Rosberg. Jamie Alguersuari rounded out the points' scorers in tenth.
