Daniel Ricciardo of Red Bull won the Hungarian Grand Prix on Sunday, overtaking Ferrari's Fernando Alonso near the end of the race. Lewis Hamilton, who started from pit lane after crashing during qualifying, was third, holding off Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg, who started from pole position.

It was Ricciardo's second victory of the season and his career, having won the Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal in June.

Rain just before the start made conditions difficult at the beginning of the race. Several drivers, including Sebastien Grosjean and Kamui Kobayashi, crashed bringing out the safety car.

Rosberg leads the championship with 202 points, followed by Hamilton with 191 and Ricciardo with 131.

The championship continues after the summer break on Aug. 24 with the Belgian Grand Prix in Spa-Francorchamps.
