Vettel puts mourning Ferrari ahead of Red Bull

Vettel puts mourning Ferrari ahead of Red Bull

Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton of Britain gestures after winning the Hungarian Formula One Grand Prix, at the Hungaroring racetrack in Mogyorod, northeast of Budapest, Sunday, July 29. Though Kimi Raikkonen (Ferrari) and Valtteri Bottas (Mercedes) are in third and fourth position, respectively, it will be hard for them to pose a challenge against Hamilton and Vettel, considering the blistering pace of latter two and also the gap in the points table.

The sport will now take a month-long break before battles resumes in Belgium on August 26.

With Bottas on his worst winless run since joining Mercedes, relationships at the Silver Arrows will need to be managed closely.

"Really happy, going into the break, particularly with back-to-back wins". "It's not too often I get to do family holidays so that's something I'm looking forward to".

After Bottas's early stop (to cover Raikkonen's) and Hamilton's stop on lap 25, the next stage of Vettel's race was all about the gap to Bottas.

"We are halfway through the season and the points difference is big, but of course the team will make a decision at some point", he said.

Bottas broke his front wing in the incident and fell to fifth, hitting Daniel Ricciardo's Red Bull on the way in a later incident, while Vettel was able to continue and finish second. I think in the dry, we were pretty much in control.

Hamilton won the grand prix to extend his lead in the championship to 24 points.

But many experts say those are neither irrevocable nor serious steps that could show the country is honest about denuclearization. Pentagon officials said privately there was "no evidence" to date that the North has halted work on its missile development work.

Two weeks ago, he and his Mercedes team were trailing Vettel and Ferrari in the drivers' and constructors' championships.

Mercedes, however have insisted that Bottas is not their No.2 driver after Toto Wolff claimed he had been the ideal wingman to Hamilton in Hungary.

The intervention of rain facilitated Lewis Hamilton's German Grand Prix triumph and a few days later in Hungary the wet stuff again had a seismic impact on the outcome of a race weekend.

Earlier in the season, a mechanic's leg was broken by the Finnish driver's auto following an unsafe pit release at the Bahrain GP.

"This year we all know that Ferrari really do have the upper hand pace-wise", said the Briton after his fifth win of the campaign. Red Bull surely second-best. Still, 20 laps before the end, I was feeling ok.

"I really could only have dreamed that we would be in the position that we are in right now", he told reporters.

"I think what we did was OK but as it turned out with the circumstances we lost out and we came out behind".

"Qualifying was a very important day for us", said Hamilton, referring to the fact Ferrari was expected to be quicker. I don't mean it in championship terms, we have no number one and number two, but it was just how he was racing, was from my standpoint the best race so far with Valtteri at Mercedes in the last three years.
