Just a week after winning the Styrian Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton secured another victory in Hungary.

The Mercedes driver won the Hungarian Grand Prix for the eighth time to equal Michael Schumacher's single-venue record.

This puts Mercedes in a strong position going into next week's British Grand Prix.

Despite a dramatic afternoon, Red Bull's Max Verstappen stepped in at second, ahead of Hamilton's teammate Valtteri Bottas.
