Red Bull's Max Verstappen of the Netherlands won the 37th Hungarian Grand Prix at the Hungaroring on Sunday, extending the 24-year-old defending world champion's lead in the standings.
Verstappen started from tenth position on the grid and won without his rivals having a chance to make things difficult for him. The Dutchman claimed his 28th career race win and moves past three-time world champion Jackie Stewart of Great Britain into sole eighth place in the all-time standings.
Seven-time World Championship winner Lewis Hamilton of Great Britain, who has won eight previous victories at the Hungaroring, finished second, while George Russell, who started from pole position in another Mercedes, finished third.
Monaco's Charles Leclerc (Ferrari), second in the World Championship points, finished sixth, thanks in part to poor tactics by his team, giving Verstappen an 80-point lead in the standings.
The race started in overcast conditions, with cold tarmac and high winds: all the team bosses who spoke before the race said that the cars this year were not at their best when there was no wind, so no one expected an easy race.
Verstappen took the lead on lap 52 and from then on nothing threatened his first Hungaroring success.
