F1: Daniel Ricciardo gives finger to Valtteri Bottas at Hungarian GP

Bottas ran into the back of the Ferrari as he attempted to defend the position, but Vettel escaped without any damage to finish 17 seconds behind Hamilton, with Kimi Raikkonen third.

Lewis Hamilton insists he does not have one hand on the Formula One championship despite striking a major psychological blow to Sebastian Vettel in the title race.

Despite suffering setbacks at the last two races, Sebastian Vettel is still confident he can deliver Ferrari its first drivers' championship since 2007.

Instead, in a race-defining moment, Vettel emerged just behind the Mercedes after a slow pit-stop and encountering traffic at the end of his first stint.

Vettel controversially got past Bottas to take second ahead of Raikkonen, with race officials deciding to take no further action, before Mercedes' number two made contact with the impressive Daniel Ricciardo and finished fifth.

The victory was Hamilton's record sixth in Hungary, fifth of the season and 67th of his career.

When asked about the "wingman" comment, Wolff said: "That's exactly why things that are not being discussed directly face to face are being completely spun out of control in a wrong way". Ricciardo said after the race.

The No. 1 USA cable provider added 260,000 broadband subscribers in the period - its best second quarter in a decade. Comcast said the mobile business contributed a loss of United States dollars 185 million for the period.

But thanks to his exquisite driving, and mistakes by Vettel and his team, the situation has turned back in favor of Mercedes.

Vettel was now in the lead and the plan was to pit, rejoin still ahead of Bottas, and attack Hamilton from a deficit of about 10 seconds with about 30 laps to go.

Although Ferrari boasted the faster auto for both events, a crash for Vettel in Germany enabled Hamilton to snatch victory before a thunderstorm for qualifying at Budapest wiped out Ferrari's speed advantage. "But what's really important is that we continue to keep up the pressure and keep working as we have done until now". The season resumes in Belgium on August 26. "I think we could have gone with Lewis today with the race pace", said Vettel. Kimi Raikkonen took the last spot on the podium, 2.978s off his teammate, turning out to be one of the most consistent drivers on the grid this season. On resumption, Vettel closed to within a second of Bottas, but despite tyres that were 24 laps younger, he was unable to find a pass as Raikkonen closed in.

"I am confident that if we have a auto to fight with we can put them under pressure and make things happen in the second half (of the season)". I think then it was a bit tricky knowing when to come in. It was where he started and where was after lap one but as you say, maybe the word wingman doesn't do him justice.

By the time Vettel pitted on lap 39, partly also thanks to Bottas upping his pace significantly, the gap was down to less than 21 seconds - very marginal.

"Last year we lost the championship in the second half of the year because our vehicle wasn't quick enough, but I am quite confident that we can improve", a spirited Vettel said.
