Lewis Hamilton claims thrilling pole in rainy Hungary

  • Formula 1: Do Ferrari really have an advantage over Mercedes?

A wet qualifying session in Hungary saw him secure his 77th pole position in a Mercedes that in the dry appeared to be decisively slower than Sebastian Vettel's Ferrari.

Bottas did though rack up the second fastest time. "As I said this is quite a shock really as I didn't expect to be here so I am very grateful for today". It was such a tricky session as you could see we started out with a large part of the circuit dry and making the right calls and getting the timing flawless and spot on is everything in these conditions. "First lap had to count and we had the guy in front so we were just unlucky".

"So for the heavens to open and for us to be in this position, it's such a blessing for us".

Comcast tops profit forecasts; cable TV subscriptions fall
Comcast saw its TV subscriber losses accelerate to 140,000 in the second quarter, up from 34,000 in the year-earlier period. Earnings before interest and tax rose 11 per cent to £2.5bn, while earnings per share were up 10 per cent to 67.3p.

"We didn't suffer on the softs", Hamilton said on Saturday night.

Mercedes' Valtteri Bottas and Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen, who were running in second and third place, respectively, when Vettel crashed, finished the race in second and third, as they came into the pits during the safety vehicle period while Hamilton, who was running in fourth when Vettel crashed, stayed out on the track to inherit the race lead before going on to win. "The softs were actually, I think, a better tyre for us". This has been the scene of many incidents in the past - most notably between the Red Bull drivers previous year - as it is possible to hang on around the outside of Turn 2 to be on the inside of the faster Turn 3 that follows. "I don't know how it is on the sector times, but that's where I felt I really made the difference".

It's a tough balancing act, though, because even though Hamilton says Mercedes will "park the bus", they can't run too slowly they can't run too slowly given the up-to 0.4s pace advantage Ferrari and Red Bull showed on Friday. I think the vehicle felt good and the lap started out well and as I said on the grid the tyres were cold as ever and not good for another lap but it was all about making compromises. So for sure if you can do the lap again, you can find some things.

Blood Moon 2018: Complete lunar eclipse the longest of this century
The Moon will turn red only at the highest point of the total lunar eclipse , which starts around 1 AM on the night of July 28. But a small amount of light does actually pass through the outer parts of the Earth's atmosphere and reflect off the moon.

"I think in these kind of conditions, when you go out, you have one lap, that track condition from each lap is different to another".

"So, I must say I left something on the table, and obviously Lewis was on pole with a similar vehicle - so I look forward to investigating from the data what I could've done better".
