Silverstone, UK, September 01, 2013: After a highly successful debut in the ultra-competitive Moto3™ grand prix class, Mahindra Racing is pleased to confirm that it will now supply two 2013 Mahindra MGP3O racers to Ambrogio Racing, the team’s first Moto3 customer.
Spa-Francorchamps: Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel got the better of Fernando Alonso of Ferrari and Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes to win the Belgian Grand Prix on Sunday. Vettel finished 16.8 seconds ahead of Alonso and nearly 30 clear of Hamilton and this win he also extended his overall championship lead. It was Vettel’s fifth win of the season and 31st of his career.
Meanwhile, Fernando Alonso drove brilliantly from ninth on the grid to take second place ahead of Hamilton and move back into second overall in the title race.
Surprised by his unexpected win, Vettel said, “I don’t think we expected to be dominant here, and it surprised all of us actually; it's a great result. I think we knew going into the race that our race pace, compared to Mercedes, maybe gave us a little in hand, but we didn't know where we were compared to the others, especially Ferrari, and Lotus looked very quick in dry conditions also. It wasn't clear if the rain was going to come at the end of the race, so we kept pushing, but the gap we had by that stage meant we were able to control the race from there and the last couple of laps weren't too stressful.”
Budapest: Lewis Hamilton converted his pole position into a maiden victory for Mercedes in the Hungarian GP as he edged past Kimi Raikkonen by 10.9 seconds while world champion Sebastian Vettel finished third here on Sunday.
It was Hamilton's 22nd win of his career and a success that restored him among the challengers for this year's drivers' championship.
Vettel goes into the August break with 172 points to Raikkonen's 134. Ferrari's Fernando Alonso now has 133 after finishing fifth while, Hamilton is on 124.
“What a great weekend!” said Lewis after his race victory in Hungary. “We really didn't expect this when we came here this weekend and I said last night that I would need a miracle to win today.”
