Lewis Hamilton cited a DRS issue as the reason he fell so far behind his Mercedes team-mate, George Russell, during qualifying for the Hungarian Grand Prix on Saturday. Russell defied the odds by putting together a stunning lap to take the first pole position of his career, with Hamilton languishing in seventh. 

“I tried to open the DRS and it wouldn’t open, which is unfortunate,” Hamilton told Sky Sports. “I was feeling great, front row was definitely there so it would have been awresome to get one for the team.

“But these things happen. Congratulations to George as it’s a great result for the team given all we’ve gone through. We definitely didn’t expect that.”
