Lewis Hamilton's back-to-back victories at Silverstone and Hockenheim have rescued his once, apparently, floundering season in no time at all. He's now four points clear of Felipe Massa with all the momentum in his favour going into this weekend's Hungarian Grand Prix, just as McLaren seem to have closed the all-round performance gap to Ferrari.
To top it off, returning to Hungary will be a boost for Hamilton with the memory of 2007. That was where the Alonso situation exploded but Hamilton put it all out of his mind on race day and kept Kimi Raikkonen's quicker Ferrari at arm's length to score an impressive victory.
His recent resurgence means all of his hopeful rivals are going to have to lift their games, with the Ferrari pair on top of that list.
