Heikki Kovalainen has had a difficult start to his career at McLaren - and much of it has not been his fault.

The Finn has been very unlucky since moving from Renault last season, and a number of events have transpired to deny him a string of good results.

But while he has been outclassed by team-mate Lewis Hamilton at some races, there have been others when Kovalainen has had the Englishman's measure.

He chalked up his first win in Hungary and more seem set to follow.
