Esteban Ocon in the Alpine-Renault celebrated the first Grand Prix victory of his career at the Hungarian Grand Prix.

The French won the race overlaid by a mass crash on the first lap ahead of Sebastian Vettel (Heppenheim) and World Champion Lewis Hamilton (Great Britain) in a Mercedes.

As a result, Hamilton regained the championship lead from Red Bull driver Max Verstappen (Netherlands).

Hamilton leads after eleven of 23 races with 193 points, Verstappen, who only finished tenth after a failed race, is second with 186 points.

Hamilton's team-mate Valtteri Bottas had already caused a mass crash in the first corner, which destroyed the Verstappen race early on.

Bottas braked himself on a wet track and crashed into Lando Norris' McLaren from behind, which in turn slipped into the side of Verstappen's Red Bull.

The two German Formula 1 drivers Vettel and Mick Schumacher also set an example for tolerance.

Before the start of the race on the Hungaroring, the former world champion Vettel (Aston Martin) wore a t-shirt in rainbow colors with the inscription "SAME LOVE", Haas driver Schumacher wore a black shirt with messages in rainbow colors.

Most recently, Hungary's right-wing head of government Viktor Orban announced a referendum on a law against “advertising” for homosexuality.

Vettel, who also got into his racing car with a helmet in rainbow colors, has already expressed fierce criticism in the past few days.

"I find it embarrassing for a country that is in the EU to have such laws or to vote on them," Vettel had said.

World champion Lewis Hamilton also expressed his support for the LGBTQ + community in Hungary in the run-up to the last race before the summer break.
