F1 Hungarian GP: Esteban Ocon takes victory after eventful race – as it happened

Well that was a frequently breathtaking race, with a horribly messy start, some compelling battles and a debutant winner in the hugely likeable Esteban Ocon. All associated with Ocon and Alpine are just bounding about the pit line, lapping it all up. As Gasly does indeed set a fastest lap of 1.18.3, snatching a point from Hamilton. Ocon leads Vettel by 1.4sec with only two laps remaining. “He just moved over on me man, come on!” complains Hamilton. Here’s how they stand: 1 Ocon 2 Vettel 3 Sainz 4 Alonso 5 Hamilton 6 Gasly 7 Tsunoda 8 Latifi 9 Russell 10 Ricciardo 11 Verstappen 12 Raikkonen 13 Schumacher 14 Giovanazzi. Hamilton tries another move on Alonso on turn one, but no dice once more. Hamilton tries to get past Alonso through two turns but the Spaniard holds him off brilliantly. Here’s how the points currently look, and it’s not good reading for Red Bull: 1 Ocon 2 Vettel 3 Sainz 4 Hamilton 5 Alonso ^ Tsunoda 7 Gasly 8 Latifi 9 Russell 10 Ricciardo. Ocon leads by around a second and Hamilton is now only around six seconds behind the leader. Ocon leads by around 1.3sec, with Sainz a further four seconds back and Hamilton around another one second behind.
