Lewis and Heikki qualified first and second respectively for today’s F1 race at the Hungaroring putting them both in position for a great finish. On the start Felipe Massa’s Ferrari jumped into the lead from third on the grid. Our drivers were maintaining second and third place until Lewis got a flat tire and lost a lot of time getting back to the pit lane. Lewis rejoined the field in 10th with enough fuel to finish the race. Through the next cycle of pit stops Lewis moved up to 5th where he would finish the race. With two laps to go the engine in Felipe Massa’a Ferrari gave up allowing Heikki to take the lead and the win. This was Heikki’s first F1 win and he became the 100th driver in F1 history to win a grand prix. Massa’s failure to finish also allowed Lewis to maintain the lead in the driver’s championship. The McLaren Mercedes team also narrowed the gap in the constructor’s championship, to first place Ferrari, to just 11 points.
