2015 Hungarian Grand Prix

The 2015 Hungarian Grand Prix (formally the Formula 1 Pirelli Magyar Nagydij 2015) was a Formula One motor race that took place on 26 July 2015 at the Hungaroring in Mogyorod, Hungary. It was the tenth round of the 2015 Formula One season and the 31st Hungarian Grand Prix, and the 30th time it had been held as a round of the World Championship.

Daniel Ricciardo of Red Bull was the defending race winner, while Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes came into the race with a 17-point lead over teammate Nico Rosberg. During Saturday’s qualifying, Hamilton took his ninth pole position of the season in only the tenth race, ahead of Rosberg.

At the start of the race the two Ferrari drivers Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen took first and second respectively from the Mercedes; the first win for Ferrari in Hungary since 2004. An eventful race saw a safety car period and several mistakes from both Mercedes drivers, leading to Hamilton and Rosberg finishing sixth and eighth, while the two Red Bull drivers scored the team’s first podium positions of the season. As a result, Hamilton extended his lead over Rosberg to 21 points, while Vettel moved closer to the pair, another 21 points behind Rosberg. With the 2015 Hungarian Grand Prix, Mercedes missed their first podium finish since the 2013 Brazilian Grand Prix.
