Final Hungarian GP starting grid


Lewis Hamilton will lead an unchanged Hungarian Grand Prix grid following the stewards’ decision not to punish Romain Grosjean and Lotus for their floor test failure.

The starting order had looked set for a major shake-up when second-row qualifier Grosjean’s car was found to be in breach of the ‘flexi-floor’ rules. But with Lotus successfully proving that the problem was due to damage from a curb, Grosjean can keep his position.

With no other issues arising from Saturday’s session, that means the starting grid will match the qualifying result for the first time since the season-opening Australian Grand Prix – barring any late dramas on race morning that incur technical penalties.

Hamilton took his third and Mercedes’ sixth pole of the season, with championship leader Sebastian Vettel having to settle for second in his Red Bull.
