Lewis Hamilton prepared for title challenge

Lewis Hamilton believes he has opened up the race for the world title following his victory in the Hungarian Grand Prix.

Lewis Hamilton has claimed that he still has a very good chance of winning the Formula 1 world title this season after victory in the Hungarian Grand Prix.

Hamilton triumphed in Budapest after beginning the race in pole position but he admits that leader Fernando Alonso needs to suffer a dip in form if he is to beat the Spaniard to his second world title.

The McLaren driver said: "Game on - it's a long way to go. This shows it's all to play for.

"Not enough points taken from Fernando, as he still got 10 points, but if we can continue this performance.

"We need to improve the car still in many areas, and that, I'm sure, we will do."

Hamilton is currently fourth in the title race.
