Raikkonen's future with Lotus is unclear and he has yet to commit. With five second-place finishes to add to his win at the Australian GP, the Finn must be wondering where he would be with a better car — probably much closer than 38 points behind Vettel.

Another person who will also enjoy the summer break is Pirelli motorsport director Paul Hembery.

The teams recently held in-season testing at Silverstone to assess new tires provided by the F1 tire manufacturer. Several spectacular blowouts on the same circuit at the British GP in June prompted a boycott threat from drivers.

Pirelli decided that from Hungary onward the company will revert to last year's tires combined with the current compounds from this season.

"The first time ever I can remember my tires not being a problem," Hamilton said after Sunday's race, where track temperatures reached 123 degrees.

Hembery was understandably relieved.

"Everything on the cars, including the tires, was put through a tough test," he said. "Both (tire) compounds performed extremely well."
