Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel overcomes steering problem to win Hungarian GP

• Vettel ‘over the moon’ after holding off late Lewis Hamilton charge
• Kimi Raikkonen second as Hamilton hands third place to Valtteri Bottas

Sebastian Vettel drove to victory in the Hungarian Grand Prix, staving off handling problems and charges from both his team-mate Kimi Raikkonen and Lewis Hamilton to convert his pole into a win.

Vettel had been visibly slower than both the two chasing cars but Ferrari chose not to pull him over in favour of Raikkonen and it was the right call as passing proved almost impossible at the Hungaroring. Raikkonen finished in second and Hamilton ultimately in fourth having given the third place spot he had inherited from his Mercedes team-mate, Valtteri Bottas, back to the Finn at the end.
