Olympic games have begun in Britain and Lewis Hamilton and Team Lotus both British did not disappoint at the Hungarian Grand Prix.
The very British Lewis Hamilton led for all but eight laps of the race — briefly falling back after two tire changes — despite strong challenges from the Lotus pair.
Grosjean was often less than 2 seconds behind Hamilton until he was passed by Raikkonen as the Finn came out of the pit lane after his final tire change on lap 45.
Grosjean was diplomatic about Raikkonen’s maneuver at Turn 1, when the 2007 world champion practically pushed him off the track to take over second place.
“He did what he had to do to not let me pass,” said Grosjean, who sounded confident he would have caught Hamilton. “I went a little bit on the outside and got the marbles on the tires, and then I struggled to recover. It is what it is.”
