Toto Wolff described Mercedes' 1-2 at the Hungarian Grand Prix as "really satisfying" after failing to score a victory across the past couple of years at the venue.

Although Lewis Hamilton triumphed for Mercedes in 2013, it failed to add to its success in 2014 and 2015, despite dominating much of the remainder of each respective campaign.

This year, Mercedes locked out the front row of the grid at the Hungaroring and ran 1-2 for the majority of the race, with Hamilton leading home Rosberg, almost 20 seconds clear of Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo.

"We're delighted with the result," he said.

"To take a 1-2 finish at a circuit that hasn't been so good to us in the past two years is really satisfying.

"This place has been Red Bull and Ferrari territory, so it just shows what a great place we have got to with our chassis and engine package that we were able to take such a strong finish and control the race like we did.

Despite Mercedes having taken 10 victories from 11 Grands Prix in 2016, opening up a sizeable 154 point lead over Ferrari, with Red Bull only a point behind its Italian rivals, Wolff remains cautious.

"There has been a lot of talk about the championship situation but, if this was a football match, we'd have only just completed the first half.

"There's still a very long way to go this season."
