In a mixed up opening day at the Hungaroring, first practice was disrupted by two red flags, the first for a heavy crash for Sergio Perez, and rain which limited the running.

As a result, FP2 saw a variety of run plans that ended with Leclerc on top for Ferrari from McLaren’s Lando Norris, while Max Verstappen was down in 11th for Red Bull.

Mercedes endured a tough day on the timesheet, with Lewis Hamilton 16th and George Russell 20th in second practice.

Meanwhile Daniel Ricciardo capped a solid first day back in F1 action having replaced Nyck de Vries at AlphaTauri, as the Australian driver ended both practice sessions in 14th place.
