Fernando Alonso finished a strong seventh while his team mate Jenson Button struggled first with brakes and then a drive through penalty meant he finished at the back.

Jenson Button gets a drive through penalty for being told not to change gear.
That…ladies and gentleman…is F1 right now.#HungarianGP
