Hamilton seeks more speed in Hungarian heat

Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel (left) and Kimi Raikkonen pose after the Hungarian Grand Prix qualifying at the Hungaroring racing circuit in Budapest on Saturday.

As such, while Mercedes are finding form, Vettel - and Ferrari - have not won a grand prix since May's Monaco 1-2, and risk losing the lead in the Drivers' Championship to Hamilton in Hungary.

The first incident was a clash between the Red Bulls of Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen, where the younger Red Bull driver punted out his senior team-mate and was served a 10 second time penalty. Fernando Alonso finished sixth and recorded the fastest lap of the race for McLaren-Honda.

Lewis Hamilton will need to produce something special at the Hungarian Grand Prix today if he is to lead the Formula One Drivers' Championship heading into the August break. I was there past year in Formula 3 and had a podium position, so have some good memories. "It was really hard".

"It's a great track, especially in an F1 vehicle".

Vettel and Raikkonen started at the front row and got off to a attractive start.

"I stayed off the kerbs, tried to save the vehicle".

However, past form is no guarantee of future success and Mercedes had to recognize that Ferrari were back to their best and enjoying their most dominant Hungarian qualifying since Schumacher's day.

Germany: 1 killed, several injured in Hamburg supermarket knife attack
More than one million asylum seekers have arrived in Germany since Chancellor Angela Merkel opened the country's borders in 2015. Police said a man entered the supermarket and stabbed a number of people at about 3pm local time on Friday.

"I'm very happy where we are as a team". I don't know what happened.

"We can't do anything in the race".

"I think we need to look at the races". I had a good start, but didn't want to force the issue. I had to be focused throughout, but I was able to keep the cape for a nice win.

Ferrari boss Sergio Marchionne has urged "an instant reaction" and team principal Maurizio Arrivabene also hopes Ferrari can can rebound in Hungary.

Bottas, who was also given a resounding reception, said: "I was getting a little bit anxious as the gap was increasing, but really, thanks to Lewis to keep the promise and let me by".

Vettel, who leads the 2017 standings from second-placed Lewis Hamilton by one point, stopped the clock at one minute, 16.276 seconds, crossing the finish line 0.168 seconds ahead of Raikkonen, reports Efe. For Red Bull Racing, sadly the respect between team-mates and team play was not the agenda on one of their drivers' mind.

Australian Daniel Ricciardo's hopes of repeating his dominance from Friday practice, when he topped both times, were wrecked when he pulled up with a hydraulics problem and parked his auto at the side of the circuit.
