An interesting first session saw Lewis Hamilton leading, with Sebastian Vettel behind him. Mark Webber had an incident that involved losing his front wing, and traffic became a problem. We've got another free practice session ahead of us, 90 minutes of practice, as the drivers continue to test out their tyres on the Hungaroring circuit.

FP2 should begin at 1pm GMT+1 and will end at 2:30pm.

One to Watch

Keep an eye on both Paul di Resta and Sébastian Buemi who are still fuming over things that occurred in the last race at Germany, and both involve the same driver. Di Resta isn't happy with Nick Heidfeld and their first lap incident, whilst Buemi is rueing the penalty handed out to him after an accident with the very same Renault driver.

It was a hard penalty. The images from the front are very difficult to understand because you can't really know where Nick is comparative to my car, especially under braking. If you look at some of the side and rear footage, you can understand. I strongly believe that before the braking, he was still behind me. I took my normal line and it was while we were braking that he threw himself into the space.
