Will Hamilton Rue Generosity in Hungary?
  by Chris Mawson
Lewis Hamilton put the team first at the Hungarian Grand Prix in allowing Valtteri Bottas to pass him in the closing stages of the race, giving up his place on the podium. The Brit did not have the pace to catch leader Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen behind him after his Mercedes team-mate had let him through to challenge the duo. As a result, he allowed Bottas to reclaim his place behind the two Ferraris, even though it cost him three points in his battle with Vettel in the Drivers’ Championship.

And quite frankly, there is a good chance that the latest idea by the FIA for F1 is wrong too, at least for IndyCar.
