Hamilton, who also struggled with his car in Hungary, was pleased with getting the eight points.
"Can't complain about second place," he said. "We've had quite a strong weekend. Nice new circuit, got some good points, Heikki (Kovalainen) and the team got some good points. It was just overall a solid weekend for us."
Hamilton said he had to take painkillers before the race because of a sore neck, which he attributed to sleeping on a bad pillow.
In another pit lane incident, Raikkonen tried to pull out while his fuel hose was still attached and ran into a team mechanic, who appeared to escape without serious injuries.
"I left (the pits) a bit too early," Raikkonen said. "It was my fault and unfortunately I ran over the guy who was refueling. We need to look and see what really happened."
"We still have to work very hard because today we had other problems with Kimi, and another one in the garage, but our mechanic is fine," Massa said.
Organizers said 115,123 people attended the race held beneath a clear sky with a temperature of 82 degrees and humidity at 67 percent.
The next race is the Belgian GP in Spa on Sept. 7.
