Budapest, Hungary: Lewis Hamilton won the Hungarian Grand Prix on Sunday, prolonging McLaren`s dominance on the slow and winding Hungaroring circuit.

Hamilton completed Sunday`s race in 1 hour, 41 minutes, 5.503 seconds — more than a second ahead of Lotus driver Kimi Raikkonen. Romain Grosjean, also of Lotus, was third. It was McLaren`s sixth win here in eight years.

Ferrari`s Fernando Alonso, who finished fifth, leads the championship with 164 points, followed by the Red Bull duo of Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel. Hamilton is fourth.

The race was cut to 69 laps from 70, after an extra positioning lap was added when Michael Schumacher`s Mercedes stalled on the starting grid.

The Hungaroring race is the last event before a month-long summer break, resuming with the Belgian Grand Prix on Sept. 2.
