Hamilton dominates in Hungary as McLaren continue to impress

| 28.07.2012

The Hungarian Grand Prix looks set to be an entertaining affair after an interesting qualifying session at the Hungaroring saw Lewis Hamilton qualify on pole seeing him at 10/11 to claim victory on Sunday afternoon.

The pole position was McLaren’s first since Malaysia and their 150th in their history, as Hamilton dominated the session from start to finish with both his laps in Q3 sufficient for first position come race day.

The Brit was followed by the very impressive Lotus driver Sebastian Grosjean who took second on the grid in his best ever performance and he is 6/1 to secure his first F1 win this weekend.

World champion Sebastian Vettel will start from third and is 9/2 to cross the line first whilst it was a nightmare day for his Red Bull teammate Mark Webber who didn’t make it beyond Q2 and will struggle to progress through the field to secure good points.

The Australian is 33/1 to score an unlikely win.

Championship leader Fernando Alonso also struggled as he qualified in an uncharacteristic sixth position meaning he has it all to do if he is to overcome his 14/1 price and produce a fourth win of the year to extend his lead at the top of the standings.

Jenson Button put his recent poor performances behind him to line up next to Vettel on the second row of the grid and he, like Hamilton, will be looking to extend McLaren’s dominance in Hungary where they have won 10 races.

The British driver is 8/1 to take the chequered flag first and catapult himself back into the championship race.

It was a shocking Saturday for Mercedes with Nico Roseberg qualifying 13th and Michael Schumacher having a disastrous day meaning he will start from 17th on the grid, a fact represented by their 100/1 odds to bag the win.

All Odds and Markets are correct as of the date of publishing.
