Hamilton wins first 2009 race

Its interesting to see that Lewis Hamilton's win at the Hungarian Grand Prix is his first win for this season despite being the defending champion.

Its sad to see that the race was overshadowed by Felipe Massa's accident on Saturday during qualifying. I hope he makes a complete recovery and I also hope to see him race again and again rise to the top like he did last season.

In Germany Massa secured his first podium finish and I was hoping that he would do even better in this race.

McLaren seem to be getting their act together now with Hamilton's win but I am keen to see what will happen in the next race. Also both the McLarens secured points for the first time this season.

It was also Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen's first podium finish as he finished second ahead of Mark Webber who came a respectable third.

Webber's third placing means that he is now second in the drivers championship after Sebastian Vettel failed to finish the race.

Jenson Button finished seventh and therefore his lead is being reduced with every race. What looked like a run to the title no longer looks that way now and I think the Brawn GP team will need to regroup and bring the team to what it was at the start of the season.

Williams' Nico Rosberg finished just outside the podium in fourth for the second consecutive race and behind him was Heikki Kovalainen.

Button in seventh was between the two Toyotas of Timo Glock in sixth and Jarno Trulli who took the last points place.

Rubens Barrichello did not get any points this time and former champion Fernando Alonso who secured pole did not finish the race after a tyre came off his car.

The next race will be the European Grand Prix in Valencia and Renault has been banned from that race following Alonso's car incident.

I hope that by then Massa will be out of hospital and recovering well.
