F1 Roundup: Daniel Ricciardo Wins in Hungary

Daniel Ricciardo claimed a stunning victory for Red Bull in Hungary on Sunday, passing Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton and Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso in the final four laps as a pre-race downpour and two safety-car periods created wildly differing strategies and led to a breathtaking finish.

It was Alonso who had led in the closing stages, the Spaniard having worked his way to the front after some clever strategy from Ferrari and the gamble to go for Pirelli’s soft tyres on the 38th lap – with Alonso producing a sensational drive to make them last to the end.

Hamilton, meanwhile, had started from the pit lane, survived a spin and brush with the barriers when he was caught out by cold brakes on the opening lap at Turn 2, and was still lurking toward the back of the field – while team mate and polesitter Nico Rosberg led comfortably – when the race turned on lap eight.
