F1 Hungarian Grand Prix driver ratings: Lewis Hamilton soars as Max Verstappen boosts lead

Yuki Tsunoda – AlphaTauri: 6

Disaster struck for Japanese prospect Yuki Tsunoda when a spin at Turn 7 appeared to derail his race. That being said, the AlphaTauri man ended up two laps off the pace, suggesting even a seamless run may not have changed much.

Sebastian Vettel – Aston Martin: 8

It was fitting that four-time champion Sebastian Vettel bagged a top-10 finish in the week after announcing his retirement from F1, zipping up the field from 18th to claim the last of the points on offer.

Lance Stroll – Aston Martin: 7.5

Aston Martin have to count their blessings whenever their drivers improve on grid position, and Stroll might have placed even higher than 11th were it not for his contact with Ricciardo.

Alex Albon – Williams: 5

A poor weekend for Williams saw both drivers finish last among those who finished the race, with Alex Albon at times appearing as though he was going through the motions.

Nicholas Latifi – Williams: 3

Sunday’s underwhelming 18th-place finish was all the more so given Nicholas Latifi built up so much hype with his table-topping time in FP3. The Canadian ultimately proved irrelevant come race day.

Valtteri Bottas – Alfa Romeo: 5.5

The first driver to retire after completing 65 laps, Valtteri Bottas was 14th at the time but looked handicapped on the hard tyres approaching the home stretch.

Zhou Guanyu – Alfa Romeo: 7

Alfa Romeo’s other contender, Zhou Guanyu made the most of what he had to work with despite a disastrous start and only dropped one place to end up 13th.

Kevin Magnussen – Haas: 5.5

A forgettable day at the office started with an early trip into the pit following his first-lap repairs, though it wasn’t enough to salvage much hope for points regardless.

Mick Schumacher – Haas: 7

Mick Schumacher is developing a consistency that will please his Haas superiors, even if it was only good enough for 14th on Sunday, one place better off than he started.
