2016 Hungarian GP Post-Race Stats

Hungary was surprisingly dull this year, just one retirement and it came towards the end of the race.

Qualifying for Hungary was on for longer than the race was, full of controversy and a busy stewards room. Nico Rosberg qualified on pole but was placed under investigation for setting the fastest sector under double waved yellows, but no action taken as he did still slow significantly. On top of that there were multiple red flags and a delayed start in Q1, with 11 drivers failing to make 107% because of the final red flag stopping their final runs as conditions rapidly improved.

Hamilton took the lead by turn 1 and kept it throughout, except a few laps after pits, Rosberg finished second and Ricciardo third. Kimi Raikkonen gained an impressive eight places in the race, starting in 14th and finishing sixth. On top of that Kimi also set the fastest lap of the race, lapping over half a second quicker than every other driver.


The biggest change is of course Hamilton taking the championship lead for the first time this season. Daniel Ricciardo also took third in the championship from Kimi Raikkonen after finishing in third while Carlos Sainz moved up two positions to tenth, maintaining Hulkenberg’s stat of changing championship position after every single race. Finally Alonso moved up to 13th to drop Daniil Kvyat even further down the championship.
