Just five days on from the last race in Germany, we are back in action at the Hungaroring, with 24 cars ready to take to the track for the first practice session. As ever, gathering tyre data will be the primary objective, as the soft and supersoft compounds will be in use around the twisty circuit.

We've seen the order of things change a little in the past few races, and with a three-week summer break approaching, teams will want to get their final updates on the cars before the factory shutdown.

90 minutes of Free Practice will get underway at 9am GMT+1.

One to Watch

Bruno Senna will be driving for Renault in this session, participating in his first practice since leaving HRT. There's an interview with him by Renault, in which he tells of his anticipation:

It’s not often you get an opportunity in such a big team like this and, of course, with the opportunity comes great pressure and a high demand because this is a team that is doing lots of work on a strong car this year. I feel like I’ve been inside the team long enough and I’ve participated on a lot of the technical side of things so the conditions are perfect for me to jump into the car and help the team with its development work.
