Motor Racing - Formula One World Championship - Hungarian Grand Prix - Qualifying Day - Budapest, Hungary

Lewis Hamilton: 9/10

The defending champion didn’t have the smoothest time of it last year, but Hamilton started 2015 in immense form as he took four consecutive pole positions and three victories, only missing out when he finished second to Sebastian Vettel in Malaysia. Monaco should have been another victory but for Mercedes making a strategic error, but Hamilton quickly put it behind him to win in Canada. Was only clearly beaten by Nico Rosberg in Austria, while Hungary is the only weekend which could be described as poor as he made numerous mistakes, but Hamilton still looks a stronger proposition than a year ago regardless.
