Two hours of Madness.

How historic is this victory?
  1. A team that traces its roots back 35 years, to 1971, just won its first race since 1983, when Alboretto won the Detroit GP in a Tyrrell

  2. Honda just won its first race as an F1 chassis manufacturer since Surtees won the 1967 Italian GP.

  3. I was going to say that the first Polish driver in F1 history scored points, and in his first race, but an inconsequential 2kg of unexpected tire wear nixed that.

  4. And of course, Jensen Button won his first GP (and might well have done it on pace even without FA's mechanical mishap).

  5. The first ever-wet race at the Hungaroring.

  6. BMW’s first podium with the Sauber Team.


Driver of the race:
Jenson Button

Overtaking Move of the race:
Heck there were so many that its hard to pin down a single one, but Alonsos move on MS, during the first few laps was amazing. He drove on the outside of MS and gambled on a wet track and it paid off.

Congratulations to Jenson Button on his first ever race victory. Honda has tasted blood and they will be unstoppable very soon.
