Ciao Jules

Formula 1

There is something poignant about Ferrari securing victory, in one of the best races in recent years, on the day Formula 1 paid tribute to Jules Bianchi.

The Frenchman had been earmarked as a future Ferrari driver and it feels appropriate to sign off with a dedication from today's race winner.

"It's hard to find the right words. The win was definitely dedicated to Jules," said Sebastian Vettel. "He will always remain a part of us when we jump in the car."

We are almost finished with our coverage, so I'll point you in the direction of Andrew Benson's

race report and some videos from today before we head off.

'No regrets' for Ricciardo

More from Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo (third): "The whole week has been so up and down for everyone. I'm sure Jules and his family would have wanted to see a fascinating race. All of us drivers put everything on the line.

"I made some moves on the track and don't have any regrets on the outcome of today. It's definitely dedicated to Jules and his family and a part to the team."

On his attempted pass on Nico Rosberg which damaged his front wing: "I don't regret going for that because it was my only chance of victory."

Ferrari win for Bianchi - chairman


Eddie Jordan reads a message from Ferrari chairman Sergio Marchionne, who dedicates Sebastian Vettel's win to Jules Bianchi.

It reads: "We dedicate this victory to the memory of Jules Bianchi, a fantastic guy whom we all miss terribly."

Verstappen 'didn't expect' fourth-place finish

Toro Rosso's Max Verstappen (fourth) speaking to BBC Sport's Jennie Gow: "I'm really happy and didn't expect that at all.

"I could have been fighting for the podium if I hadn't had front-wing damage and the penalty.

"It was very challenging and tough and there was a lot of action. I'm very happy and motivated for the upcoming races."

'Tough race' for Massa

Williams' Felipe Massa caused the original start to be aborted after he didn't line up properly on the grid and has told BBC Sport's Jennie Gow: "I couldn't see the yellow line and that's why I stopped."

The Brazilian was given a five-second penalty and ended up finishing 12th.

He added: "It was a very difficult race for us, especially on the hard tyres. It's really tough for us but the next races will be good for us."

Luke Tizzard: How about Max Verstappen's fourth-place finish, at only 17 that's a brilliant achievement.

Jack P: I'd like to personally buy DC and Ben a drink. They deserve it after a race like that.

hungarian gp

This chap seems particularly pleased.

hungarian gp

Ferrari fans don't get many opportunities to do this lately so no surprises to see them take full advantage of being able to get on to the circuit and celebrate post race.

Good try Tom Clarkson!

He tries to squeeze some information out of James Allison about the future of Kimi Raikkonen, who retired from the race today, and whether he would be at the team in 2016.

"He is an extremely good driver and does well for our team," says Allison.

Straight batting at its best.

Allison 'extremely happy'

Formula 1

The win was Ferrari's and Sebastian Vettel's second of the season after the four-time world champion triumphed in Malaysia back in March.

Since then, Mercedes have been the dominant force and Ferrari's technical director James Allison welcomed a return to winning ways.

"I'm extremely happy," he said. "We have had a run of below-par performances and this is a very welcome bounce back to form. We can go on our break and sit on the beach for two weeks and think of this.

"I think it is unlikely that we can have this level of performance in all the races to come, there was all sorts of chaos today, but hopefully we are a little more competitive as the season unfolds."

Alonso 'surprised' by fifth-placed finish

Formula 1

Both drivers in the points, but was this weekend a step forward for McLaren, or a one off?

"To be fifth at the end of the race was a little bit of a surprise," Fernando Alonso, who finished fifth, told BBC Sport.

"It was a chaotic race, some opportunities came our way and we took our opportunity. The minute of silence before the race was very emotional."

Rian Hoskins: Despite its tight and twisty layout why does the Hungarian Grand Prix keep producing terrific races even without rain?

Javel Bleach: Rosberg has probably trashed his mobile home in frustration! Great opportunity lost. He won't get a lot more like that.

Bishop Yinkus: A very rare race from @LewisHamilton but at least he was very honest and accountable for his driving today & his determination.

Wake-up race for Mercedes - Lauda

Mercedes' boss Niki Lauda, speaking to BBC Sport's Tom Clarkson: "Lewis was very aggressive today, twice. Ferrari were sensational so congratulations to them.

"It was a wake-up race for us. I am not worried or bothered - these things happen in racing."


Bernie Ecclestone swoops in on the BBC F1 team and praises an "incredible race".

"The right people won and the right people were second and third," he adds. "The whole result was good."

Short and sweet before off he goes, climbing into his car to leave.

'Superb' race 'fitting tribute'

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner talking to BBC Sport: "It was a superb race and a fitting tribute to Jules Bianchi.

"I think Daniil Kvyat found that quite tough and it took him a few laps to settle down."

Vettel 'not just world champion on track'

Eddie Jordan

BBC F1 chief analyst

"We have heard different views on Sebastian. Today was a measure of the man. He's not just a world champion on the track. It was a very passionate and moving speech on the team radio. He said what every driver wanted to say and did it with such style."

Christopher Foxon: "Wow! What an incredible race! Carnage, drama, overtaking, places changing! Wish I had gone to the Hungaroring again this year.

Josh Stocks: Well that was certainly the most exciting race so far this year!

Matt Wood: How can people say F1 is boring?! What a race, awesome Grand Prix from Budapest. A great demonstration of my favourite sport!


It has not been a race to remember, for the right reasons anyway, as far as Mercedes are concerned but Bernie Ecclestone has managed to raise a few smiles in the team's motorhome.

"I just came in to say thank you. But you went a bit overboard with making it interesting,"

he says.

I can pass Hamilton soon - Rosberg

Formula 1

Nico Rosberg, who finished eighth after his Mercedes suffered a puncture late on following a collision with Daniel Ricciardo: "Daniel still had his front wing there. The FIA have looked at it and decided to take no action and that's the way it is.

"I'll just keep going. It was close. We're at half-time. With little differences, I could have had the lead at half-time. There is a good chance I could pass Lewis in the world championship some time soon."

Fernando Alonso's fifth place finish is McLaren's best of the season while Jenson Button finishes in the points for only the second time in 2015 with ninth.

It is also the first time they have both finished in the points this year.

I'll come back stronger - Hamilton

A bit more from Lewis Hamilton: "Today was weird. Do I deserve any points? I didn't give up and drove as hard as I could.

"To come away from one of the worst performances I've put in in a long, long time... it shows we are human.

"The team worked incredibly hard but I'll come back stronger."

Hamilton 'all over the place'

Lewis Hamilton

Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton (sixth) talking to BBC Sport's Jennie Gow: "I was all over the place. I don't have any words to explain what happened today. It was a really bad performance from myself.

"I pushed and never gave up but when I had two different choices I chose the wrong one very time."

Well, you'll have the chance to hear from the man himself EJ, he is talking to Jennie Gow right now...

Eddie Jordan

BBC F1 chief analyst

"I'd like to ask Lewis if he choked today. He was right in the middle at the start and braked earlier than everyone else."

Dad keeps the bragging rights

Max Verstappen was so close to being able to have the Hungarian Grand Prix bragging rights over his dad.

Verstappen junior finished fourth, only just missing out matching Jos's distinction of scoring his maiden podium at the 1994 Hungarian GP.

He also just missed out on being the youngest driver to finish on the podium but regardless, fourth at the age of 17 in a Formula 1 race is a remarkable achievement.

Ferrari performance 'surprising'

Eddie Jordan

BBC F1 chief analyst

"Ferrari are so surprising. They can really turn it up when they need to do it."

Chris Williams: Enjoyed the #HungarianGP today. Action packed, wheel to wheel racing and at the end of that Hamilton still leads the championship.

Charlie Duncan: Think I can breathe now...that was a unexpected race.

Joanna Poole: Who said Formula 1 boring?! Awesome race! On the edge of my seat for the entire race!

Vettel and Ferrari brilliant - Mansell

Congratulations to Seb and Ferrari just brilliant for them both ,great display from Red Bull ,both drivers on podium ,Mercs wow not your day

Ricciardo 'owes race to Jules'

Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo, who finished third: "It was a crazy race. I had contact at the restart with Lewis and thought my race might be over. I had contact with Nico and thought my race was over.

"I left it all on the track today. I gave it everything and I owe my race to Jules. I gained extra strength today and I owe that to him."

Drivers' championship

Drivers champs

After all that drama, Lewis Hamilton has actually extended his lead over Nico Rosberg. He goes into the three-week summer break with a 21 points advantage, up from 17.

It wasn't the perfect weekend he hoped for, far from it, but the damage has been limited.

Kvyat 'never gave up'

Daniil Kyvat

Red Bull's Danill Kvyat, who finished second: "After Turn One I thought my race might be over because I had a massive flat-spot.

"My team told me to keep pushing and today I learned what it means to never give up."

What will they be up to?

What will Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg be doing with themselves at this moment in time? It has been a long, long time since at least one of them has not been on the podium.

You have to go back to Brazil 2013 for the last time there was no Mercedes driver in the top three, a run of 28 races!

Win for Jules - Vettel

Race winner Sebastian Vettel during the podium interviews: "Well, an incredible day but this victory is for Jules. It has been an incredibly tough week for all of us.

"And for all the people at Ferrari, we know sooner or later he would have been part of our team."


German TV presenter Kai Ebel is the man tasked with conducting the podium interviews, showing off a shirt that would not look out of place in Eddie Jordan's wardrobe...


National anthem time as Sebastian Vettel stands proudly on the top step, Daniil Kvyat and Daniel Ricciardo either side of him. Who'd have thought we would ever see that top three!?


Seb joins Senna


So that's Sebastian Vettel's first ever win at the Hugnarian Grand Prix and the 41st of his career - equalling Ayrton Senna in third place on the all-time list, only trailing Alain Prost (51) and Michael Schumacher (91).

Arrivabene 'very happy'

Bit more sense here though as Arrivabene adds:"I'm very happy for the team. It's a pity for Kimi because he drove a great race."

Asked about Sebastian Vettel's win Ferrari team principal Maurizio Arrivabene says: "I like angry pizza."


... neither.
