Hungarian Grand Prix
Lewis Hamilton continued his long love affair with the Hungaroring by posting the fastest times in both Friday practice sessions in the buildup to the Hungarian Grand Prix. Hamilton has become a master of the tight, twisty track, the slowest permanent facility on the Formula One calendar, claiming four poles and four victories in seven attempts.
Another win on Sunday would make the 29-year-old the most successful driver at the circuit of all time. Quickest in the first session, when the medium-compound Pirelli tyre was used throughout, Hamilton posted a time of 1min 25.814sec, finishing 0.183sec clear of Rosberg.
Come session two, when the drivers were allowed a run on the soft rubber, the quicker of the two choices this weekend, Hamilton improved to 1:24.482, with Rosberg down by 0.238.
