2014 Hungarian Grand Prix starting grid

2014 Hungarian Grand Prix starting grid

Yesterday’s qualifying session saw Lewis Hamilton make a fiery exit from the first segment after a fuel leak, leaving his team-mate Nico Rosberg to take pole position for today’s Hungarian Grand Prix.

The German will line up in first place for the sixth time this season, while Hamilton will start from the pit lane. Rosberg will share the front row with Red Bull Racing’s Sebastian Vettel. Daniel Ricciardo and Fernando Alonso will complete the top five on the grid.

Felipe Massa and Jenson Button were sixth and seventh fastest, with Jean-Eric Vergne and Nico Hulkenberg next up. Daniil Kvyat will start in 10th, with Kevin Magnussen – who originally finished in that spot – starting from the pit lane following his Q3 crash.
