Hungarian Grand Prix - Free Practice 2: a rain affected session

2 Aug 2019

The second free practice session at the Hungarian Grand Prix was not particularly significant.

Rain. A few minutes after the start of the 90 minute session this afternoon at the Hungaroring, the first drops of rain began to fall and the drivers pitted so as to avoid any unnecessary risk. Up to that point, Charles Leclerc’s best time was a 1’18”852, which put him seventh on the time sheet. Sebastian Vettel stopped the clocks in 1’19”254, which in the end made him 13thfastest. The rain then intensified as the session progressed and the drivers went back out on intermediate tyres, which so far this season have not been required much at all.

Tomorrow. The rain is expected to stay away for the rest of the weekend, so tomorrow’s final hour of free practice, which starts at 12 will be vitally important to prepare for qualifying, which gets underway at 3pm tomorrow, with the race starting at 15.10.
