Hamilton delight at first Mercedes win Was the first victory of T world champion in 2008 with Mercedes, and his first since the United Male Grand Prix in November.Lewis Hamilton says his Hungarian Grand Prix victory is among the most important of his career.
“I think this is probably one of the most important victories in my career,” said Hamilton. “I really could not be happier and I hope that there will be many more to come.
“If we can make the tires post here we can do it anywhere.”
After taking the pole on Saturday, Hamilton said it would be a “miracle” if he wins the race because he feared that his car suffered problems with the tires, as was the case this season, especially at elevated temperatures.
But these problems never materialized, with 28 years to control the race and make a decisive way through visits to present himself clear the air and to build a gap.
“I guess you could say I was hungry for it.” “I was going all out and you need to get past these people, and I usually get stuck -. Today I did not then, I was going every step I had.”
And McLaren’s Jenson Button was one of those drivers who Hamilton was to pass quickly through the race – and it seems he’s got a little help from his former teammate.
While Sebastian Vettel Red Bull is trying hard to find a way past Button on two separate occasions, and Hamilton found a way through after a few laps.
“During the race, I was thinking about all the great times we had together race. There were times when I won and the times I won.”
Hamilton win – for the fourth time in seven races in Hungary – reduces the gap to championship leader Vettel to 48 points to lead the sport in the summer holidays for a period of four weeks and a Mercedes driver and hopes this result can motivate the team to better things.
: “We have worked hard to understand these tires and we got a spot in the team balance has just done an exceptional job,” he said.
“I am very optimistic this could be a real turning point for us and we have dealt with this song temperatures are high.”
Said Hamilton, who broke up with his girlfriend Nicole Scherzinger earlier this month, the win came after “one of the most difficult weeks of my life.”
He added: “I’ve had my mind in a lot of different places at the end of this week, when you were not on my laptop with my engineers or in the car, and my mind was just in the clouds.
“Mom and Dad have been calling and messaging me a lot these past two weeks in an attempt to lift my spirits, it’s been a difficult period. Has really made the difference.”
