Hungary Button

Jenson Button again proved his mastery of changing conditions.

On a drying track with intermittent showers, Jenson Button reeled in both his team mate Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel to win the Hungarian Grand Prix.

His smooth driving style and tyre control gave him the edge again.  Meanwhile Hamilton had to take a stop-go penalty for a doughnut in front of Paul di Resta as he recovered from a spin.

Meanwhile Michael Schumacher retired with transmission issues.  His next career is possibly triathlon following in Button's footsteps.  This bizarrely familiar photo from 1905 is for sale on Ebay right now in the cycling sports memorabilia section.  As you can see the poster is titled Le Grand Prix de l'A.C.F.  i.e the GP of the automobile club of France although it depicts a cyclist.  Looks like a very interesting research project which may turn up an ancestor of the great MSC on a bike.

Vettel took second place in front of Alonso and Webber came in behind Hamilton in fifth.

Ironically, although the Vettel stranglehold has been broken again, he has now a greater points lead than at any time this season.
