French driver Esteban Ocon secured his first Formula One victory with Renault-owned Alpine on Sunday in a Hungarian Grand Prix that was stopped and re-started after first lap chaos.
Sebastian Vettel took the second spot for Aston Martin, with Mercedes’s seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton completing the podium after starting on pole position and then having to fight back from last. Hamilton re-took the Formula One championship lead from Red Bull’s Max Verstappen.
Bottas handed five-place grid penalty for next race
Mercedes’s Valtteri Bottas will have a five-place grid penalty at Formula One’s next race in Belgium after the Finn triggered chaos and collisions on the opening lap. The race was halted after Bottas braked late and hit the back of Lando Norris’s McLaren, which then smashed into the side of Max Verstappen’s Red Bull and wrecked the race for both.
