Ten of the best pictures which tell the story of the Hungarian Grand Prix weekend.

Lewis Hamilton, Friday

Everything went swimmingly for Lewis Hamilton during practice – he was fastest in all three sessions. Unfortunately his luck deserted him when qualifying began – a fire at the rear of his Mercedes condemned him to starting from the pit lane.

Pastor Maldonado, Friday

A rain shower shortly before the race meant the track was very wet as drivers began their pre-race installation laps.

The conditions were not too wet to prevent a standing start, but with spray everywhere Nico Rosberg had just about the only good view of the first corner.

Jenson Button, Hungarian Grand Prix

Jenson Button was best-placed to benefit from an early Safety Car period but McLaren made the mistake of giving him a second set of intermediate tyres while the rest of the field opted for slicks.

Nico Hulkenberg, Sebastian Vettel, Hungarian Grand Prix

At the restart Nico Hulkenberg made an opportunistic pass around the outside of Sebastian Vettel at turn two. But three corners later he skidded off the track, undoing his hard work, and a few laps after that went out of the race following a collision with his team mate.

Jules Bianchi, Hungarian Grand Prix

The battle of the Marussias was won by Jules Bianchi by less than a second over team mate Max Chilton, despite Bianchi losing considerable time due to floor damage on the right-hand side of his car after being hit by Pastor Maldonado.
