Lapped traffic is always a problem at the Hungaroring and while Sebastian Vettel decided to sing his usual “Blue Flags” song, Lewis Hamilton took a different approach.
When losing a chunk of time behind Haas’ Esteban Gutiérrez, the Mercedes made sure the Mexican knew what position he was currently in…
Gutiérrez wasn’t a big fan of the gesture and chose to let Hamilton know about on Twitter.
Being a world champion doesn’t give you the right to be disrespectful to your competitors, my friend @LewisHamilton

But it wasn’t the only bit of middle finger wagging during the race as Daniel Ricciardo reminded Nico Rosberg of what position the German used to be in the championship.
Funny, as that was pretty much my reaction to spending my Sunday watching that unbelievably dull race.
