Watch a hot lap of the Hungaroring

Heck of a race yesterday, wasn’t it? Not only was it filled with, like, proper racing, but it was a milestone for Mercedes and Lewis; the latter picking up his first win behind the wheel of a Benz, and the first Brit to do so since Sir Stirling Moss.

So what better way to relive an epic Hungarian Grand Prix than with this short hot lap video released by Codemasters. In it, Toro Rosso’s Daniel Ricciardo - a man being considered for his compatriot’s spot at Red Bull come 2014 - takes us on a hot lap around the Hungaroring, in a teaser video of the upcoming F1 2013 videogame.

Sky F1 commentator, Le Mans driver and former F1 pilot Anthony Davidson talks you around the lap, telling you where to brake, where to accelerate and where to be careful. He doesn’t mention Ricciardo’s (or whoever’s controlling him) hairy oversteer moment, but we’ll leave that for you lot to discover…

It looks like a good ‘un, F1 2013, because earlier this month we told you that the standard edition will allow you to not only play all the official cars and drivers from the 2013 season, but also classic 1980s cars, circuits and drivers. Buy the ‘Classic Edition’, and you’ll also be able to play F1 in the 90s. This is Good News.

Have a watch of Danny’s lap below. Codemasters have also released two more hot lap videos from this season - Jenson Button in his McLaren at Silverstone, and Kimi Raikkonen at the Nürburgring in his Lotus. Just don’t tell him what to do, he might bite…
