Hamilton leads second-placed Vettel by 24 points after winning the past two races, and the German driver needs little reminding his British rival turned around a 14-point deficit at the same stage previous year to take the title by 46.

Mercedes Formula 1 boss Toto Wolff described Valtteri Bottas' drive in the Hungarian Grand Prix as that of the "perfect wingman" - but it was a role he took way too far after playing it so well for a long time. 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. I was disapponted with my end result in the race and saw everything in a negative way for a moment.

"I wanted a better result, we should have been able to do one stop", he continued, "but we had to stop earlier than we wanted because of Kimi, we had to cover him".

"I am happy to see that the auto is fast, it has worked well on every track so far, so I think this is the most important thing".

Hamilton won the race, while Bottas slipped from second to fifth late on after clipping the back of Vettel's vehicle and then bumping sides with the Red Bull of Daniel Ricciardo.

He said: "We lost out and we came out behind, that didn't help".

In a dramatic finish, Valtteri Bottas lost control of his auto and bumped Ricciardo's Red Bull off the track as he was about to be overtaken. "But I think all around, as a whole, we have hopefully done a slightly better job".

He also escaped damage when Bottas ran into the back of his Ferrari as the Finn defended his position at the second turn. So marginal that any problem in the pit stop would cost Vettel position.

"A lot can happen moving forward but what's really important is that we continue to keep up the pressure and keep working as we have done until now".

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

This was the fourth time this season that Verstappen has failed to finish, and Red Bull team principal Christian Horner blamed the Renault engine as being substandard.

"We came here knowing that the Ferraris would be real quick this weekend", he said. Honestly I'm really happy because we knew that with Toro Rosso, two, three times in the year you have big opportunities like this where the auto works better than expected, things come your way. "Fair enough, I think a racing incident", he added. Still, 20 laps before the end, I was feeling ok. "What matters to me is that we are constantly developing, and we are". For sure we knew from the start that qualifying, where we qualified, we tried to do something different, I was happy to do that and I think the pace showed today that we were good.
