Lewis' unexpected victory in Germany has now been followed up by an equally surprising win in Hungary, with the four-time World Champion admitting he didn't know what was going to happen at the Hungaroring as he lined up for the race start.
"At the beginning of the race, I didn't know what to expect," he said. "I was on pole and pulled away, Sebastian was on the Soft tyre and I knew I wasn't in a comfortable position by any means.
"I had to make my strategy work. I was really proud of what I was able to do on the UltraSofts, making them go as long as they did.
"At the beginning of the Soft running, it didn't feel great and the balance was a little bit off. I was able to counteract it with some control settings, car balance-wise, diff-wise, brake balance-wise and just the way I was driving to lean on the front and get the balance back.
"After that, it was good. Valtteri was a sitting duck in the end but did a great job until then. The last two weekends have been a blessing in disguise.
"I'm very, very grateful and the guys really deserve the great results. We had work to do because Ferrari is still slightly ahead pace-wise, but I think I had them covered in the race."
