First lap chaos forced a restart to the Formula One Hungarian Grand Prix which French driver Esteban Ocon won with Alpine in the end on Sunday.
Aston Martin's Sebastian Vettel came in second, while Lewis Hamilton won third spot for Mercedes.
Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas had to under brake for the opening corner, thus crashing into Lando Norris' McLaren who then bumped into Red Bull's Max Verstappen.
Hamilton's third place finish helped him regain the championship overall lead from Verstappen.
