Hungarian Grand Prix
Lewis Hamilton looked back his Mercedes, flames bellowing out of the rear, shook his head, and then trudged off in disbelief. Hamilton was forced to stop on the pit lane entry road where marshals quickly used extinguishers to douse the fire, started by what Mercedes claimed to be a fuel leak.
For the second time in seven days, a spectacular car failure left him impotent to challenge his sole rival, Nico Rosberg, who swept to pole position by default and will start ahead of Sebastian Vettel in his Red Bull and the Williams of Valtteri Bottas followed by Daniel Ricciardo in his Red Bull and Fernando Alonso in his Ferrari.
Williams' Felipe Massa starts sixth, with Jenson Button seventh for McLaren ahead of Toro Rosso's Jean-Eric Vergne and Nico Hulkenberg for Force India, with Magnussen 10th.
