Lewis Hamilton secured his second win of the 2012 season in Hungary after taking a pole to flag victory despite various challenges for the lead.

The McLaren driver came under pressure from both Lotus cars, firstly Romain Grosjean then Kimi Raikkonen who finished just a second off the lead.

The Lotus duo complete the podium with Raikkonen finishing ahead of team-mate Grosjean.

Sebastian Vettel also lost out to Raikkonen to drop from third to fourth, but crucially finished ahead of championship leader Fernando Alonso in fifth.
