1528: Right, that's it from me. Enjoy the F1 Forum, on which reigning world champion Jenson Button has just told Jake and the gang: "It's the toughest day that we [McLaren] have had racing this year. But it's pretty crazy how tight the championship is." One of the most exiting days for us race fans this year though, surely. Well done to new champo leader Mark Webber. See you all in three weeks in Spa.

Mark in St Andrews, Scotland: "Schumacher is a disgrace. Those where the sad actions of a man who can no longer compete with the best, but still thinks he is unbeatable and untouchable."

1518: Incredible exchange of views between the ever-humble Barrichello and a backs-to-the-wall Schumacher. That will be dissected in full on the F1 Forum, which has taken over from the BBC1 coverage on the video at the top of this here page (sorry, only UK viewers). TV viewers can simply press their red button. Hit it.

Mercedes driver Michael Schumacher on BBC1: "Well, there's not much to say. He obviously had fresher tyres, my job was to get the last corner spot on, I had a line of about 5cm, and I was making it obvious to him to go on the other side. There was more room there, but he chose not to. Certain drivers have their views."

Rubens Barrichello on the late incident with former Ferrari team-mate Michael Schumacher: "He made a mistake on the last corner and he's just a bit too close. What we want from racing is to have battles but to be fair. Luckily the wall finished there and I was able to go a bit more to the right. Take a line and stick to a line. He's taking something from the past into the present and there's no need for that. It was the most dangerous manoeuvre against me I have ever known. His view is always that I'm a big cryer. What do the public think? I'd love them to let me know on Twitter ..."

Third-placed Sebastian Vettel: "[At the time], I didn't understand what was going on and why I was penalised. I didn't hear anything on the radio after briefly losing connection. I was warming up my car and was sure we had another lap [under the safety car]. It's a disappointing day for me."

Second-placed Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso: "We wanted a good Sunday with no mistakes or no penalties. Mark was incredibly quick and the soft tyres today were not that soft [which benefited him]. The layout of the circuit also helped today: on a normal circuit it would have been impossible to maintain second [from Vettel]."

Red Bull's race-winner and championship leader Mark Webber: "The start we always knew was going to be a bit tricky on that side. I knew once I'd got the primes on and these guys had already done 20-odd laps; it was in the bag. It was a bit of a gift for me - but I haven't had many of them. An incredible day for the team. One-two was our goal but we were unfortunate not to get that."

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner: "Mark drove a blinding race. The safety car came out at the wrong time, and we decided to split the cars. Mark's middle stint was amazing."

1457: One win separates the top five of the drivers' championship. Here's BBC F1 pundit David Coulthard. "That's motorsport. You can have reliability issues and other He's just got to take it on the chin." And his pal EJ: "Mark Webber is like a rejuvenated man. He is really sparky and thinks he can win the world championship."

1453: Is F1 really a team sport? No. Podium time now, but Vettel has his eyes fixed on the ground whilst sporting a gargantuan scowl. That Australian anthem must sound like scratching nails down a chalkboard. Webber's happy as larry.

1450: Another emotional rollercoaster that race, not least for Sebastian Vettel - now 10 points behind Webber in the champ. His race engineer tells him on the radio as he slips over the line: "I know you're upset, we're all upset, but remember there's nothing you can say now that is going to change anything. Take a deep breath."

1445: And the Australian goes four points clear of Lewis Hamilton at the top of the drivers' championship. "Thanks guys," Webber coolly tells his team over the radio. "Well done, you deserve it. A tricky little stint on the options - but we got there in the end." And then some! Alonso's second. Vettel, who yet again threw away a race lead from pole, is third. Can't see steam coming out of his ears as his helmet's still on. Massa fourth; Petrov and Hulkenburg fifth and sixth.


Lap 70: More on that Schumacher drama to come no question. But the brilliant Mark Webber is cruising towards victory...

BBC Radio 5 live race F1 analyst Anthony Davidson: "I really got shivers down my body when I saw that manoeuvre of Michael Schumacher's. I know commentators should remain unbiased but I agree completely and 100% back Barrichello there in calling for Schumacher to be black-flagged. It's going to be interesting to see what the stewards do. Any driver out there knows how dangerous that was. It could have been lethal."

Lap 66: Ouch. That's not cricket. Schumacher nearly shoves Barrichello right into the wall but the Brazilian survives, just, before overtaking him into Turn One - and is now up to 10th. "That could have been a horrible accident, he never knows when to give it up - and that might be the case now with his comeback," says David Coulthard on BBC1. "Definitely a shadow of his former self." Barrichello is livid. "Horrible," he screams. "That should be a black flag". STEWARDS INVESTIGATING...

Zeke Pliskin on 606: "Well, more fuel to the fire that Schumacher will NOT be able to salvage anything from this season. Constantly outclassed by his teammate, younger drivers like Kamui able to outpace him and generally a faded version of his abilities. Bernie et al can talk him up as much as they like, but the point is I think he has lost his form. Maybe next year he'll have better luck, but I don't see Mercedes doing as well as Brawn last year any time soon."

Lap 62: Little battle between Barrichello and Schumacher but the legendary German's still got his pride and fends off the Brazilian. For now. Kobayashi - who started on the back row - is in ninth by the way. Button eight, De la Rosa seventh, and Hulkenburg sixth.

Lap 60: It's a Red Bull procession but not quite how we imagined it. Mark Webber LAPS SCHUMACHER - my what a great feeling that must be, like nutmegging Maradona or hitting six sixes off Warney - with a lead from second-placed Alonso of just over 20 seconds. This would/ will be his sixth Grand Prix victory in Formula 1. Less than 10 laps.

Lap 56: Barrichello pits. Swaps onto softer tyre and moves back out into 11th, meaning Michael Schumacher moves into the points.

Renault on Twitter: "Vitaly is still battling hard to catch up and hopefully overtake BAR..."

BBC Radio 5 live race F1 analyst Anthony Davidson: "Alonso is a wise old fox when it comes to situations like this. He's had Michael Schumacher tucked behind his gearbox for lap after lap at Imola, and fended him off. It's going to take a Herculean effort for Vettel to do anything."

Lap 51: Relatively shocking weekend for Jenson Button and McLaren will feel isolated and lonely, like the kid who didn't get invited to the class party. Is it back to the drawing board for them? Button is in ninth, so maybe he'll pick up some stale left-over cake in the form of a couple of points. He really wanted a podium this weekend.

BBC F1 analyst Martin Brundle: "Mark Webber had a difficult qualifying, but now he's got his chance in the race, my goodness is he taking it."

BBC Radio 5 live race F1 analyst Anthony Davidson: "There we go. The Red Bull team made doubly, quadruply sure Mark Webber would safe by leaving him out for a few more laps. The mechanics are giving each other high fives. Now the focus is on Sebastian Vettel, who clearly didn't know about the safety car rule. It's the team's job to make sure the driver knows the rules."

Lap 47: Webber's side of the garage are joyous at least. Vettel's crew will want to finish second, and will still no doubt feel a tinge of regret. Webber will leapfrog his German team-mate - and the McLaren pair of Hamilton and Button - to the top of the drivers' championship if he can seal the win. Vettel is quicker than Alonso.

Lap 43: WEBBER PITS SMOOTHLY... with a 23.7 second advantage over Fernando Alonso and RETAINS THE LEAD. Critical. Red Bull garage elated. Ferrari's Rob Smedley sounding deflated as he chats with fourth-placed Felipe Massa. What a race this is proving.

Brian on the 81111 texts: "The last two years have been a nightmare for Hamilton as there've been at least two teams each season that were better than his. This slip up (again) by McLaren is probably going to cost him the championship again. He is by far and away the best driver in the championship for managing to keep up. We're all behind you Lewis!"

Lap 41: On tenterhooks for this Webber pit stop. He still out there though. Quick. Vettel's breathing down Alonso's neck now. Good mental recovery from him. Massa, Barrichello and Petrov behind the leading three. Enjoying yourselves out there?

McLaren's championship leader Lewis Hamilton, who is OUT OF THE RACE: "I went through Turn One and basically lost drive. I think the gearbox went. That's motorsport. When you push cars to the limit these things can happen. We've lost a lot of points today."

Lap 36: Just over half-way now and Webber is ripping up the track. Sets the fastest lap. No doubt thinking about the title. That Red Bull is rapid. Free from traffic, he's now 18.5 second clear of Alonso. A decent pit stop and he can be the true race leader. Wow.

BBC Radio 5 live race F1 analyst Anthony Davidson: "It's not all over for Red Bull - Vettel can catch Alonso towards the end of the race and have a great battle. I tell you, if I was Vettel I'd be seeing the red mist big time, and I'd be well up for getting past Alonso."

Lap 32: This is not fiction: Vettel, almost in tears, gesticulates wildly as he drives-through. After he questions the penalty, his race engineer adopts Mum-mode: "It's because of the re-start. Hamilton's out of the race. Stay focused." Webber is NOT pulling away from Alonso. The gap is 13 seconds. He needs 19. What a cracker.

BBC Radio 5 live commentator David Croft: "This is the race right here, because if Fernando Alonso can stay within 19 seconds off Mark Webber, and Sebastian Vettel has to serve the stop-go penalty, Fernando Alonso could be on for a race win here!"

Lap 29: Webber could win this race should Vettel be penalised. He is! DRIVE-THROUGH, so that's 25 seconds evaporated for the German who, don't forget, started on pole but again finds difficulties in the race. We thought this was a nailed on Red Bull one-two. Right, it's a 13.3 second gap now between Webber and Alonso. Ferrari eyeing a Massa pass on Vettel.

Lap 27: Real drama in Hungary. Vettel is under investigation for exceeding 10 lengths behind the safety car. Remarkable. He is told over the radio to start "dropping Alonso". That means: put your foot down! remarkable. "Push and be wise," Alonso is told over his radio by race engineer Andrea Stella. Go fast but don't crash!

Lap 24:CHAMPIONSHIP LEADER LEWIS HAMILTON IS OUT OF THE HUNGARIAN GRAND PRIX. Could have been that late brake problem which McLaren decided not change just ahead of the race. No, it s a transmission error reports Ted Kravitz...

Lap 23 Stop-go penalty for Robert Kubica. Just to make it crystal: Webber needs that 19 seconds to pit stop and then get out in front of Alonso into second. He's got 10 already.

BBC Radio 5 live race F1 analyst Anthony Davidson: "It was basically a completely unsafe release by Renault, and they'll be in big trouble. It was an equally bad stop by Mercedes, and I'm just hoping nobody was hurt by the loose tyre off Rosberg's car. But the teams are under so much pressure in those circumstances, when all the cars come in together."

Lap 21: Very lucky nobody was injured there. Webber needs 19 seconds. That's a lot of time to make up, but he's flying now in the clean air.

BBC F1 pit-lane reporter Ted Kravitz: "The wheel came off Rosberg's car and it was caught, wicket-keeper style by a Sauber mechanic."

BBC F1 pundit David Coulthard: "What might happen now is that Red Bull ask Vettel to hold the field up to allow Webber clean enough air to build a lead that will ensure a team one-two. If Vettel runs at full pace and pushes on, Webber is going to struggle."

Lap 18: Wowsers. Safety car IN. Your new order: Webber, Vettel, Alonso, Hamilton, Massa, Barrichello. Webber still to pit. Debris on the track caused the safety car: Force India broken wing we think.

Lap 17: Not entirely sure why the safety car is out, but Webber is out in front now with Vettel and Alonso into the pits. He is going to hammer it round to see if he can then get the jump on Alonso, surely. Kubica and Sutil have collided in the pit lane. Drama. Good news for Hamilton, this...

Lap 16: Compelling then, this battle for second. Is Vettel nailed on for the podium's pinnacle? Silly question. Oh. The safety car is out!

BBC F1 analyst Martin Brundle: "Alonso's best chance of finishing second it to try to back Webber up into Massa and Hamilton. Webber's sitting there thinking, I'm gonna be P2. I can't win; Alonso's cost me the race, but I will finish second. To try to destabilise that, Alonso has to back him up into the mix."

BBC F1 pit-lane reporter Ted Kravitz: "Red Bull's best chance with Webber is to pit him before Alonso and try to leapfrog him. Ferrari are ready to react, though."

Lap 11: No refuelling of course, so pitstops are all about tyre changes - and position on track. Can anybody find a strategic gap. Hispania's Yamamoto about to be lapped, Toro Rosso's Alguersuari has retired. The screech of engines becoming trance-like now.

BBC Radio 5 live F1 analyst Anthony Davidson: "The first tyre window will be somewhere between laps 11 and 15, but the cars with extra downforce have such a big advantage in terms of reduced tyre degradation. I think nerves got the better of Vitaly Petrov at the start of the race and he made a few mistakes, but he's starting to claw his way back up towards Lewis Hamilton now."

Lap nine: Slight panic in the Mercedes camp. Michael Schumacher shrills: "I'm noticing the brakes becoming very spongy. What is it? Is something wrong?" Race engineer Andrew Shovlin replies: "Negative, Michael. Probably the caliper, so do be careful with them." Vettel miles in front, it's nearly eight seconds...

BBC F1 analyst Martin Brundle: "You've got to be impressed by that. Button's looking at the car five in front of him - Barrichello - and noticing what tyres it's on."

BBC pit-lane reporter Ted Kravitz in the McLaren garage: "Button's initial getaway wasn't that bad - but he was just crowded out through Turn One. The strategy was for him to go very long on the soft tyres. That hasn't worked now, so the likelihood is they'll call him on early onto the prime, harder tyres."

Lap five: So - Vettel, Alonso, Webber, Massa, Hamilton, Petrov, Rosberg are your top six. Reigning world champion Button back in 14th. Five second lead for Vettel, who continuing to set fastest laps despite the efforts of Alonso through sector one. Stunning stuff.

BBC Radio 5 live F1 analyst Anthony Davidson: "It's Mark Webber this time that didn't get the Red Bull off the line and he's paying the penalty, he's bottle-necked behind the Ferrari already."

Lap two: Vettel is already 2.5 seconds clear of Alonso's Ferrari. Incredible. Crucial move from Hamilton around the outside of Turn Two to re-take Petrov into fifth. Alonso really pressed Vettel at the start, and nearly took the lead. All hell loose in the middle of pack.

Lap one: We are go-go-go... Vettel away cleanly. But Alonso splits the Red Bull's to take second ahead Webber! Petrov brilliantly into fifth ahead of Hamilton. Button drops back to 15th. Let's race.

BBC F1 analyst Eddie Jordan: "I think Felipe Massa came in for a lot of criticism in his own country following his allowing Alonso to pass him in Hockenheim, and it has really made him step back and think. I detect something stronger about him this week, a real determination."

1257: Key stat with just minutes remaining until we're go-go-go: Vettel has only converted one of his six pole positions this season. That must change if he's to win the world title. Quick re-cap. Red Bull - white-hot favourites - lock out the front row. Alonso and Ferrari team-mate Massa in behind. Slight chance. The start is crucial. Hamilton to hustle from fifth. Heart's beating hard now.

BBC Sport's Sarah Holt in Budapest: "Hello again. Phew, it's hot here in Budapest. A toasty 28C and a lot of the mechanics were reluctantly pulling on their safety suits before heading into the garages moments ago. There were a few complaints about tyre degradation over the last two days but with the track temperature rising that could become a decisive factor in strategy. The drivers were also returning from the traditional drivers' parade on a truck and Lotus driver Jarno Trulli caught my eye sporting a rather petite pair of black football shorts. There is plenty to divert the eye at the Hungaroring, the track which is nicknamed 'the dinner plate' because it sits in a valley surrounded by green fields dotted with terracotta-topped houses and there is a good, clear view from the stands. Those stands are fairly filled with eye-catching fans, many of them here from Poland, Russia and Britain too."

1254: Hamilton's brakes not perfect, he was feeling vibrations on his reconnaissance lap, but McLaren are not going to change anything. Team boss Martin Whitmarsh says he will have to brake hard into Turn One. Watch his progress, and all the other drivers, with our special Driver Tracker in the centre of the video carousel above.

1247: F1 commercial supremo Bernie Ecclestone is supporting Vettel for the drivers' championship. And here is the Red Bull pole-sitter, with a tasty line in understatement: "It's a nice car to drive." Another entertaining grid walk over, Brundle's now larking about on the track in another feature aimed to show the how tight, twisty and technical this Hungaroring track is. Just over 10 minutes until lights out.

1239: Sublime. Here's Martin Brundle's stream-of-consciousness grid walk. Collars Vitaly Petrov, who starts an impressive seventh. "It was a good qualifying," says the charming Russian. "Anything can happen at the start. I know this track well." Now a grinning Rubens. "You all know the drama of the last race," he says. "I hope this is a clean one." McLaren are inspecting Lewis Hamilton's brakes, which aren't quite right. "Not a big drama at the moment," says a mechanic.

1235: Lordy. Jenson Button's wearing a wetsuit! Hang on, it's not live - just a nice feature on BBC1 about his love for the triathlon. "You need this in your life to relax," he tells Jake. "I got into it back in 2007 when the [Honda] car was tough to drive and we weren't getting the results we deserved." Chomps on some ice cream, chats to some retired ladies rambling along the coast. Working that camera.

BBC Sport's Sarah Holt in Budapest: "Mercedes have been staying late at the track - and, despite that, some team members have still been cycling the 14-mile journey back to the heart of Budapest - after another weekend of head-scratching. Nico Rosberg lines up sixth but Michael Schumacher is back in 14th. Team principal Ross Brawn is going back to their Brackley HQ with a shopping list of updates. He says: 'The two major technologies - the F-duct and the blown diffuser - we are still not completely there with. The floor is being redesigned and remade in time for Spa. Now what's been demonstrated is the lower front ride heights and the lower front wing - and we have to work out how to do that, because that'll be a very significant advantage.' Brawn, just like his McLaren counterpart Martin Whitmarsh, is also seeking clarification from the FIA on the flexible front wings which are being successfully deployed by Red Bull and Ferrari. 'Before we all go off and have a massive development programme, we are asking whether [race director] Charlie Whiting is going to change the rules before we all get there? We just want to make sure Charlie is comfortable with it'."

Zeke Pliskin on 606 : "This could be the best Hungarian GP in years. Though the Red Bulls are likely to fly ahead and retain their lead throughout, having former champions Button and Schumacher in mid-table positions should lead to an interesting climb. And the increased performance of the Ferraris should give Hamilton and Rosberg a really close battle throughout. As ever, good pit strategies will play a big part here. But there's still a lot of pressure on the drivers."

BBC F1 analyst Eddie Jordan: "A 1.8 second gap between Vettel at the head of the grid and Hamilton in fifth is unheard of. It's a tribute to the Red Bull design team lead by Adrian Newey. The RB6 will go down as one of the best cars ever built."

1215: Red Bull have completely dominated qualifying this year and yesterday was reflective of that. Effortless, and pole-sitter Vettel was 1.8 seconds ahead of Lewis Hamilton who qualified fifth. But don't forget, that has not been fully converted on race day and it's Hamilton and team-mate Button who lead the drivers' championship . Both Red Bull drivers must get away cleanly today. Hang on. Will they truly race each other if they pull away at the front? Thoughts please.

A flag for Vitaly Petrov
The flag Petrov's friends mocked up
BBC Sport's Sarah Holt in Budapest: "I always enjoy talking to Renault's Vitaly Petrov as the Russian is still learning English and so gives abrupt, short answers which sometimes make you laugh and sometimes make you think you've upset him. There was good reason to talk to him in Hungary as for the first time he out-qualified team-mate Robert Kubica by one place in seventh. Was he pleased? 'Yes.' Does it mean a lot? 'It means something but not a lot.' What does he hope for the race? 'The first corner will be very difficult because it's very tight. I want to finish in the top 10 and do a clean race without mistakes.' Does he think more solid results will help him end speculation after his Renault race seat in 2011? 'I don't want to say anything, just wait to the end of the year and you will see what will be'. Petrov was much happier to talk about the friends from his hometown of Vyborg, who surprised him by stringing up a big flag emblazoned with 'Yuri Gargarin (1st in space), Vitaly Petrov (first Russian in F1) = Russian pride'."

Roger in Belgium on the 81111 text: "Not sure whether this will be a white hot prospect or another start to finish procession. Hopefully the start will produce some action, if not it looks like the only chance to beat the Red Bulls is a mistake or mechanical problems. Fingers crossed! Now, back to work for me."

1209: So, it's scorchio in Hungary. Jake's scrapped the white trousers! Five hungry (no pun intended) drivers with 34 points between them have eight races to become world champion in one of the most widely competitive seasons in recent memory. Controversy abounds as always. Superb. Lights out in under an hour...

1204: Right, BBC1's coverage is about to get under way. Refresh your browsers please (UK users) for the video to spark into life...

BBC Sport's Sarah Holt in Budapest: "McLaren have been freely admitting at the last two races that they are the third fastest team behind Red Bull and Ferrari. In Hungary, Lewis Hamilton was a massive 1.7 seconds behind Sebastian Vettel's pole for Red Bull. McLaren have clung on to the lead in both championships but boss Martin Whitmarsh insists it is now vital the team makes strides in developing the car. He says: 'We've been trying to play catch up with Red Bull in particular. We need to respond as quickly as we can. We're missing downforce from our front wing but we've got some ideas.' McLaren start their two-week factory shutdown - which all teams do to give staff a break - at midnight on Sunday. Whitmarsh adds: 'I'd love not to have a shutdown and plough on, understand what's permissible with the flexi-wing and make them next week but I can't. We'll come back energised, inventive and fighting. We'll do what's necessary to make sure we come back at these other teams.'"

1153: Can't wait to see what Jake's wearing. Very chic yesterday, though the faded pink shirt and white trousers led someone to compare him to a FLUMP [other marshmallow treats are available]. Let's get a bit more technical on that Hungaroring weather report, with the BBC's Ian Fergusson : "It's been a glorious, almost cloudless morning in Budapest with strong sunshine across the circuit and the track temperature much higher than yesterday. This fine, hot weather will prevail through today, with some fair-weather cloud around this afternoon but a just a very small (under 10%) chance of well-idolated showers later. The more widespread showery / thundery weather of Friday and Saturday has relaxed off eastwards, now primarily focused across the high ground of western Romania".

BBC Formula 1 presenter Jake Humphrey on Twitter : "Remember guys we're going on air at 12.05 [BST] today so get your jobs done now and we'll see you there. REALLY hot here. Have a great day!"

BBC Sport's Sarah Holt in Budapest: "Reigning world champion Jenson Button is in danger of losing ground in the title race unless he can push and pass his way through the field after a poor qualifying session. Button is second to Lewis Hamilton in the standings but the Red Bulls on the front row are hot on his heels, just seven points behind. Button, who came from 14th to win a chaotic, wet race here in 2006, lines up in 11th. He says: 'I'm starting on the clean side which makes a big difference around here and I have a new set of tyres - whether it's softs or the hards - to put on the car. We have good balance with the car in race trim so we can still have a good race and pick up some points. Finishing behind Lewis will hurt my championship hopes but there's still everything to play for.'"

1137: Hello all. That's looking a white-hot prospect, isn't it, after the dominant Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber easily locked out the front row in qualifying... unless, unless, Ferrari's Fernando Alonso can sneak past Webber on the clean side at the start? You never know. Last day of term before Formula 1 breaks up for it's traditional mid-season summer break today, so we're in 'dress down' mode: let's have some fun. Do get it touch via 606 or text us on 81111 (UK) or +44 7786200666 (worldwide) with F1 before your message.

1130: Lewis Hamilton said he and his good buddy (oh, and McLaren team-mate) Jenson Button were laughing at the on-board footage of Red Bull on Saturday, such was the car's incredible pace. Can't imagine the championship leader and reigning world champion will be giggling like giddy schoolgirls if Red Bull cruise to a one-two today...
