Hamilton: McLaren will learn from Hungary

Lewis Hamilton believes his McLaren team can learn their lessons from the Hungarian Grand Prix and warned his team-mates to guard against complacency.

The 23-year-old Brit started on pole on Sunday but after suffering a tyre puncture and a lack of speed compared to Felipe Massa, he fell behind and finished fifth.

Massa’s engine failure with only three laps to go earned the McLaren team a reprieve as Heikki Kovalainen was left a clear run to victory.

But Hamilton feels the lesson was "very important" for the team and said it served as a reminder of all the hard work still to be done.

"You can never under-estimate a team like Ferrari, and we know they’ll be pushing just as hard as us to gain an advantage for the remainder of the year," he explained.

He said the whole team would now be working flat out to ensure they can remain strong in the remaining races of the season, with the next being the European Grand Prix in Valencia.
