Hamilton overcame treacherous conditions to claim pole position in Hungary on Saturday. To make things even better, Mercedes took a 1-2 ahead of Ferrari. This was the defending champion’s second memorable performance in less than a week. Especially after he won a chaotic German Grand Prix from 14th on the grid in similar conditions.
In the dry sessions, Ferrari appear to be one of the strongest teams. Sadly for them, they failed to convert that potential on Saturday. As a result, Vettel will line up fourth, behind teammate Kimi Raikkonen.

When asked if this performance proved to him that he is the better driver, he had this to say. He said: “Obviously I know the answer to that question but it’s for you and the public to judge that. All I can do is try to be the best I can be every single time we get on track and regardless of ultimately mine and everyone’s opinion, the results will hopefully speak for themselves so that’s what I put all my energy into.

In the tricky conditions there was a lot of pressure on him. However, he hopes that bit by bit, they will change the mentality of the fans.
