Heikki Kovalainen in maiden win

Heikki Kovalainen won his first grand prix when he won the Hungarian Grand Prix when the Ferrari's Felipe car's broke down with just three laps to go.

Massa had managed to pass both Maclaren's drivers Kovalainen and Lewis Hamilton on the first lap and looked set for a victory but all that came to nothing when his car could not complete the race.

But it was also good for Kovalainen who got his maiden Formula 1 win. Kovalainen has been scoring points here and there but with Hamilton scoring the wins for McLaren and he must be relived that he has finally got the top podium finish.

It was also a good day for Toyota with Timo Glock coming a surprise second ahead of Ferrari's Kimi Raikonnen who completed the podium.

Glock who started fifth on the grid got his first drive and this is good for the Toyota who haven'y had much to celebrate for the last few seasons. Both Toyota cars in the points with Jarno Trull getting seventh position.

Former champion Fernando Alonso finished fourth ahead of Hamilton who I think could have finished with a podium place had he not had a puncture in the race.

After finishing on the podium in the last race, Nelson Piquet could only manage sixth position.

I think it was a disappointing race for BMW Sauber who had Robert Kubica get the last points place with Nick Heidfeld in sixth. BMW have been consistent so far with finishes fifth and under but this time they did not do as well.

Mark Webber finished pointless as he finished just behind Kubica.

Hamilton now leads the championship by five points going to the new circuit in Valencia for the first time.
