It was another torrid weekend for Jolyon Palmer who damaged his Renault twice during practice. With Renault sizing up Robert Kubica for a possible return, would they consider buying Palmer out of his contract and replace him before the year is out?

With no long straights to extract maximum benefit from their power unit, Mercedes weren’t at the peak of their powers in Hungary. Lewis Hamilton qualified behind Valtteri Bottas and finished behind his team mate after letting him through on the final lap, honouring a pre-race agreement.

Paul di Resta

Late in the final practice session Felipe Massa decided he was too unwell to take part in the weekend. Paul di Resta was therefore drafted in for a comeback at short notice, an impressed by qualifying within eight tenths of a second of Lance Stroll on only his fifth flying lap.

The Red Bull drivers got ahead of Hamilton at the start but their advantage was destroyed when Max Verstappen hit Daniel Ricciardo and took his team mate out of the race. Verstappen also collected a ten-second penalty, ending their chances of keeping one of the Mercedes drivers behind.

Nico Hulkenberg and Kevin Magnussen

Kevin Magnussen and Nico Hulkenberg fell out spectacularly at the Hungaroring, leading to a bizarre post-race exchange between the pair. Magnussen accused Hulkenberg of dirty driving when the Renault driver tangled with Romain Grosjean at the start, then collected a penalty for forcing Hulkenberg off later in the race.

Fernando Alonso
