Today was qualifying at the Formula One Grand Prix in Budepest, Hungary.  At the start of Q1, Mercedes AMG driver and 2008 World Champion Lewis Hamilton's car, mysteriously caught fire.  The disaster not only ended his day in Qualifying, but could have ended his life.  As a result of the event, Hamilton will have to start from the pit lane.  Formula One historians have said, "No driver has ever been able to start from the pit lane and win. Hamiltin may move up 5 or 6, maybe even 10 spots, but, it will be difficult  on that track."  Hamilton fans said, "Do not under-estimate Lewis."

Qualifying second was Red Bull driver and 4-time world champion, Sebastian Vettel. Third was the very dependable Williams-Martini driver, Valtteri Bottas. Rounding out the top five was, Red Bull Daniel Ricciardo and Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso.
