Sebastian Vettel wins another world championship title

Sebastian Vettel has won another world championship title with victory in the Hungarian GP ahead of Kimi Raikkonen and Valtteri Bottas.

Vettel, handicapped for most of the race by a steering issue, was indebted to team-mate Raikkonen not challenging him for the lead as his pace evaporated.

In a highly risky but sporting move, Lewis Hamilton surrendered third place to Mercedes stable-mate Bottas at the final corner after previously being let through by the Finn in order to attack the Ferraris.

The result means Vettel will take a 14-point lead over Hamilton into the summer break.

With internal politics rather than race pace ultimately deciding Ferrari’s finishing order, Mercedes’ decision to swap their drivers on the last lap will be fiercely debated – especially if it ultimately costs Hamilton a fourth world title.
