Hamilton: Still a long way to go in 2012
29 July 2012 – Lewis Hamilton’s third victory in Hungary takes him into the F1 summer break in the best possible way. The Englishman, who also won in Budapest in 2007 and 2009, now sits fourth in the championship and 47 points behind Fernando Alonso.
“Thank you very much,” he said on the podium when being interviewed by Spanish tenor Plácido Domingo. “An amazing day, fantastic work by all the team, great pit-stops and the fans here have been fantastic so thanks for having us this year.
“I’m looking forward to the continuing in the championship. There is a long, long way to go and we’ve got a long of work to do. These guys are obviously very close to us but we’re going to give it all we can.”
The result marks Hamilton’s 19th career win in his 101st Grand Prix start.
