BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) Heading into Formula One's mid-season break, Lewis Hamilton is completely drained.
It has been a topsy-turvy 11 races so far, with nine to come after a month off. Hamilton trails F1 leader Sebastian Vettel by 14 points, with both drivers winning four races. But Mercedes has struggled with reliability issues on its tires and problems with car balance, all of which has taken its toll on Hamilton.
He clearly needs a rest before the tussle with Vettel starts again at the Belgian Grand Prix on Aug. 27.
