Vettel fastest in Hungary but Mercedes in a spin

When asked if being a "wingman" was to be expected driving at Mercedes alongside Hamilton, who extended his championship lead to 24 points with victory, Bottas replied: "I think we need to speak after this race".

Raikkonen, without water during the race after Ferrari forgot to connect the bottle, made two stops and agreed third - his fifth successive podium finish - was the best he could have hoped for in the circumstances.

It was a serious dent to Vettel's title-winning chance as Lewis Hamilton took a sensational victory in Germany and retook the lead in driver's championship.

In lap number 10, the advantage of Hamilton grew to 4.4 seconds, while in lap 14, Raikonnen stopped to change tyres.

Mercedes were on course for back-to-back one-twos at the Hungaroring before Bottas collided with Sebastian Vettel on fading tyres after the German's Ferrari had passed him with six laps remaining.

But Wolff defended his remarks about Bottas, and said they had been misinterpreted.

"And he would have said the same about Lewis if he'd be in same situation and had a similar race". The incident allowed Bottas to move into P2 as Vettel joined back in P3.

Mercedes missed out on a 1-2 as Bottas was overtaken by Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen with five laps to go.

"We know that consistency is the key, scoring points, and I did myself no favours last week", said Vettel.

Sources confirmed that another artillery shell also coincided with a Hamas observatory outpost east of Gaza City. The kites have caused hundreds of fires inside Israel in recent months, according to Israeli officials.

There is still plenty of work to do if he is to break that streak, even if Hamilton is well ahead of where he was this time a year ago when he went into the August shutdown 14 points adrift of Vettel.

"I guess with the damage he went in pretty hot".

"In today's race, starting P2, after Lap 1, Valtteri's race was the ideal wingman race - and I don't mean it in championship terms, because we have no No 1, we have no number two, but it was just how he was racing".

"I was happy today, happy to finish and get some points and have a race I feel I maximised".

These five seasons were dominated by Vettel, who finished second once and won the other four championships. "I don't know how much length the tyre was on but I guess it was around 50 - 54 [laps] - the tyre was completely shot".

Vettel said he was not concerned, either by his championship position or by comparisons with past year.

"Absolutely not. I think it's far too early [to say that] and you've seen the ups and downs we've had from this year, you've been ahead by some points and behind some points", he added. Vettel was now only a couple of second off Bottas and only passed the Finn when the latter made a decision to pit on Lap 15, a lap after Raikkonen.

"It was good we were faster and could pull a gap to Valtteri", Vettel said.
