Hungarian GP: Sebastian Vettel, Red Bull stay ahead in practice two

Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber secured another Red Bull one-two in the second Friday practice session for the Hungarian Grand Prix.

The German and the Australian had topped the morning session and they repeated the feat when drivers used the softer Pirelli tyres in the afternoon.

Vettel led the way once more with a time of 1m21.264s as the top five drivers were covered by less than three tenths of a second.

Lotus’s Romain Grosjean was the fastest of the non-Red Bull drivers ahead of the Ferraris of Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa.

Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg were sixth and seventh respectively as Mercedes did not show the kind of one-lap pace that has secured it the last two pole positions.

Kimi Raikkonen, Jenson Button and Adrian Sutil completed the top 10 in a trouble-free session.

Vettel needed just a few minutes to move to the top of the times with the fastest lap of the weekend so far, the Red Bull driver posting a 1m22.484s 10 minutes into the running.

Although Webber managed to reduce gap as the session progressed, Vettel raised the bar at the 30-minute mark and went a full 1.2 seconds quicker with Pirelli’s soft tyres.

The Australian reacted right away, however, and – also using the softs – move to within 0.044s of Vettel’s time.

Rosberg’s first run on softs elevated him to third place, albeit over seven tenths of a second behind the pacesetter.

Hamilton outpaced his team-mate with the yellow-marked rubber, although he too was far from Vettel’s time despite Mercedes’ single-lap pace.

Ferrari drivers Alonso and Massa relegated the Mercedes duo at the halfway point, with the Spaniard moving into third ahead of his Brazilian team-mate. Both men were running with the soft tyres.

Grosjean then got even closer to the Red Bulls – just 0.153s behind – and jumped to third place in the Lotus.

Hungarian GP: Sebastian Vettel leads Red Bull one-two in FP1

Sebastian Vettel set the pace in the opening practice session for the Hungarian Grand Prix as Red Bull started its weekend in perfect fashion.

The world champion and team-mate Mark Webber were the only two drivers capable of lapping the Hungaroring circuit in less than 83 seconds, with Vettel’s 1m22.723s good enough to secure the top spot.

Webber finished 0.259s behind, with Lotus driver Kimi Raikkonen in third, less than a tenth behind the Australian.

Fernando Alonso was fourth quickest in the Ferrari, while Raikkonen’s team-mate Romain Grosjean completed a top five covered by less than 0.4s.

Jenson Button was the quickest McLaren driver in sixth, ahead of Force India’s Adrian Sutil and the Mercedes of Nico Rosberg. Team-mate Lewis Hamilton, last year’s polesitter in Hungary, finished down in 13th.

Rosberg, in need of running to make up for missing the Silverstone test, was the first of the frontrunners – and the second driver overall – to completed a timed lap, over half an hour after the session had started.

The German’s run prompted several others to jump onto the track, with Raikkonen quickly moving to the top of the times with a lap of 1m24m.056s. That was bettered by Perez, the first man to lap in the 1m23s, the Mexican soon joined by Webber and Pastor Maldonado.

With less than 40 minutes left, Alonso moved to the top of times in the Ferrari as he completed his first full run of the morning.

Vettel, who only completed installation laps to that point, managed his first timed lap with some 20 minutes of the session left, moving to ninth position.

But both the German and team-mate Webber upped their pace in the following minutes, with Vettel setting a new benchmark of 1m22.723s, over two tenths quicker than what the Australian had manged moments earlier.

No other driver ran in the 1m22s and the Red Bull duo stayed on top.

The only incident of note during the session was a spin by Jean-Eric Vergne with eight minutes to go. The Toro Rosso driver resumed without further drama.
