    I don't think there's any driver unluckier than Lewis Hamilton. Rosberg had it too easy. Vettel put a great fight in Q3 tho.

    Exciting race before the month long summer break! Great driving from the top three. Really wanted Hamilton to win this but Alonso and Ricciardo did well. Hamilton having started from the pit lane finished 3rd ahead of his teammate who started in pole position. Vettel could have been there in the mix if he hadn't spun when Hamilton was chasing him. It was good to see Kimi recover back to 6th after a horrible blunder by Ferrari in qualifying yesterday. Definitely going to download this race
    But I still don't know what I'm gonna do for the next one month :|
    Bring on Spa!

    I still don't get why Mercedes asked Lewis to move over for Nico. That was totally ridiculous. Nico wasn't even close to him. Lewis made a good call in the end.
    Tyre wear was higher than I expected. I think the removal of FRIC has made the difference here.

    Even I wanted ALO to win this time.
    I don't like him but boy he is an epic driver.
    He is THE best on the track now a days.
    And that's coming from a VET fan.
    All credit to ALO.

    I finally got some time to share my views on yesterday's race. I think the driver of the day has to be Alonso because he's one of the four drivers who lost out to the first safety car period. He's the only one who finished on the podium. I would put Hamilton as second best of the day. Really disappointed by Mercedes' strategy. They could've easily put him on a 3 stop strategy. He stopped for options on lap 8 and then for primes on lap 39. Making it a 31 lap stint on the option tyres. I personally think options were a better choice for the race. Just like the hard compound was the better choice at Silverstone. Ricciardo was good and benefited the most from the safety car. His passes on Lewis and Fernando were clean but nothing too spectacular. He had a massive grip advantage over the two. But he drove intelligently, credit to him! Rosberg was disappointing. He was stuck behind Vergne and that might have made the difference. Hamilton cleanly passed Vergne into turn 4 when it was needed. Rosberg failed to capitalize early and finished behind the guy who started in the pit lane. Happy to see Massa get some points in 5th! Kimi recovered well from 17th to finish 6th. Vettel cracked while defending and messed up his chances for a podium. Bottas couldn't do much in the race. Before the race, I had a feeling that Williams would struggle in the long run at Hungaroring because their aerodynamics are not as good as Merc's W05 or RBR's RB10. Vergne also drove well. He was actually running P2 behind Alonso at one stage in the race. He held off Rosberg spectacularly who was driving a much superior car. Button and Magnussen both were let down by McLaren's horrible strategy. What the hell were they smoking! I think they need to get rid of Sam Michael. That guy wrecked Williams during his stint with them and now he's wrecking McLaren. Ron still has to make some changes.

    I forgot to mention one thing in my last post.

    'Despite the setbacks, drivers like Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso show that world champions can snatch a podium after starting from anywhere on the grid.'

    Just saw the news that the gravel trap at Parabolica has been replaced with a tarmac runoff area.
    That just makes Parabolica easier than ever because the drivers would know that the new runoff won't be hurting them that much. But it also increases the risk of a high-speed crash straight into the wall.

    What you said makes sense but the cars this year are going to be much faster down the straights than the V8-powered F1 cars of the previous seasons. It'll be a lot harder to stop them without a gravel trap. The Parabolica is such a unique corner that it can make or break your lap. With the new runoff, drivers going wide won't get punished like they used to. Plus, there have been couple of brake failures this season. By changing the runoff, they have compromised the driver safety by quite a margin.
    We already saw the Mercedes-powered cars going 340+ km/h at Hockenheim(Lewis Hamilton, Mercedes W05: 346 km/h). So, I'm predicting around 358-362 km/h if the teams decide to take an "all-out-vmax" approach. Would be interesting to see if the tyres can hold on to that. If Pirelli is too scared about their tyres not being able to keep up then the teams might take the "RBR approach". Medium top speed with enough downforce to let the cars attack corners like the lesmos and the Ascari chicane. Can't predict much yet because we've yet to see these new cars go through Eau Rouge. I think they might just be able to take it flat-out.
