Lewis Hamilton feels at the peak of his powers after stunning Hungary GP win

• Briton wants second half ‘to be even better’ after eight wins
• World champion brushes away any thought of retirement soon

Lewis Hamilton has said he feels at the very peak of his powers and has no intention of retiring soon. Having completed the most successful first half of a Formula One season in his career with a stunning victory at the Hungarian Grand Prix, the five-times world champion looks firmly on track to take another title this year.

Hamilton beat Red Bull’s Max Verstappen into second place at the Hungaroring after the Englishman and his Mercedes team completed a brilliantly executed race. With Mercedes taking a gamble on stopping twice, Hamilton closed down a 20-second gap to Verstappen and passed him for the win with three laps to go. His charge was a display of ruthless, precision driving and secured his eighth win from 12 meetings this season.
