Mark Webber Wins Hungarian F1 GP and leads Drivers Championship

Looks more like Mark is at the tail end of a two day party - but F1 is a demanding sport

Red Bull’s Mark Webber has won the Hungarian Grand Prix and taken over at the top of the Formula One World Drivers Championship.

Teammate Sebastian Vettel had to settle for 3rd after what was looking like an easy victory went pear shaped when he followed too close to the safety car and got pinged with a drive trough penalty.

A sweet moment for Fernando Alonso who proved that his Ferrari was indeed  quicker that Felipe Massa’s.

Lewis Hamilton was forced to retire with gearbox problems, and with Jenson Button only finishing 8th McLaren conceded the lead in the Constructors Championship to Renault.
