Lewis Hamilton took his first chequered flag for Mercedes with an outstanding drive in the 2013 Hungarian Grand Prix. Kimi Raikkonen finished second ahead of Sebastian Vettel.
Pole-sitter Hamilton controlled the race after an initial tussle with Vettel and Romain Grosjean who qualified in second and third. The Brit led from start to end, surrendering the lead briefly to Grosjean and then Webber during his pitstop.
Vettel initially pushed Hamilton hard, but pressure from Grosjean allowed Hamilton to put space between his Mercedes and the Red Bull.
After his first pitstop, Hamilton found himself behind former teammate Jenson Button, but the McLaren driver could do little to defend and Hamilton quickly overtook. Vettel also found himself behind Button after pitting, but the two made contact, leaving the Red Bull with a damaged wing.
Vettel finally passed Button on lap 24, but as Grosjean attempted to follow he also collided with the McLaren. After the race, Grosjean was given a 20sec penalty in lieu of a drive-through, but he still retained sixth place as he finished 21.5sec clear of Button.
