BUDAPEST, Hungary, July 29 (UPI) -- Lewis Hamilton dominated the Hungarian Grand Prix Sunday, winning the event for the sixth time in eight years after holding off a pair of late challengers.
McLaren's Hamilton, the pole-sitter, gave up the lead only briefly during his two pit stops in the 69-lap event on the Hungaroring course, holding off Lotus drivers Kimi Raikkonen and Romain Grosjean down the stretch.
The triumph allowed him to close to within 47 points of Formula One standings leading Fernando Alonso as the tour heads into its month-long August break.
Raikkonen, meanwhile, claimed his third second-place finish of the season while Grosjean was third, 10.5 seconds behind Hamilton.
Taking fourth place was Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel while Alonso rounded out the Top 5.
