26th July 2014 (F1Plus / Rosie Baillie) - Lewis Hamilton and Kevin Magnussen will start the Hungarian Grand Prix from the pit lane. 

Hamilton's car caught fire during Q1 meaning he was unable to set a timed lap.

Mercedes said the fire was caused by a fuel leak but haven't yet identified where the leak came from. 

The Briton will start the race from the pitlane. 

Slight rain caught many of the drivers out at the beginning of Q3, including Magnussen who stepped onto the grass and slide into the barriers at turn one. 

The Dane's incident red flagged the session for a few minutes while marshalls repaired the barriers. 

Magnussen's crash caused significant damage to his car which necessitated a chassis and gearbox change which means he will start from the pit lane. 

Pastor Maldonado retired at the start of Q1 and was unable to set a time. The stewards have allowed him to take part in tomorrow's race.
