BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) On the day he equaled Brazilian great Ayrton Senna's feat of 41 race wins with a brilliant drive at Sunday's Hungarian Grand Prix, Sebastian Vettel's thoughts went to Jules Bianchi and his family.

Vettel's win, coming from third on the grid in a twice-started race that was then interrupted by a safety car just when the German driver was cruising to victory, was one of the finest performances in the four-time F1 champion's career.

It was full of panache, and Vettel was proud to dedicate it to Bianchi, a young and dashing French driver whose own career was cut short.
