Esteban Ocon claims maiden F1 win in chaotic Hungarian Grand Prix

The Frenchman saw off a fierce challenge for almost the entire race distance from Aston Martin’s Sebastian Vettel in second. Lewis Hamilton came back brilliantly to third after dropping to the back of the field while Max Verstappen was tenth after being hit on the opening lap. He was forced to pit at the end of the lap but with the rest of the field effectively having a free stop Hamilton emerged at the back of the field. He passed Antonio Giovinazzi on lap 10 to take 13 th and was 24 seconds off the lead. He was 36 seconds behind the leaders with 38 laps remaining and two seconds from Sainz in fourth. Sainz fell two laps later but Ocon and Vettel were out of touch out front.
