- Former champion had taken pole but was beaten by Verstappen
Lewis Hamilton has admitted he has not felt he has been at his best in Formula One for more than a year. The British driver conceded after the Hungarian Grand Prix that struggling with an off-the-pace Mercedes has left him below the level at which he would like to be performing.
Hamilton had claimed pole on Saturday for the race in Budapest but was beaten off the line by the winner Max Verstappen and then passed by the McLarens of Lando Norris and Oscar Piastri. Hamilton recovered to come back and claim fourth place, showing some pace in the final stint.
