Lewis Hamilton's hopes of clinching the Championship title took a blow this afternoon.

The Stevenage driver finished fourth in the Hungarian Grand Prix after he allowed his Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas to pass him on the last corner and finish just ahead of him in third place.

Milton Keynes-based Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo wasn't able to make it to the finish line.

He was knocked out of the race in the first lap following a collision with teammate Max Verstappen. The teenager suffered a ten second penalty and crossed the line in fifth position.

Vettel's victory moves him 14 points ahead of Hamilton in the championship.
