The chosen drivers for Thursday's pre-Hungary press-conference all look very solemn as they answer questions about the upcoming weekend. After five long months of travelling, they may be anticipating the summer break and the absence of press conferences for the next three weeks.

Jenson Button, shown speaking as the others listen, is hoping for rain so that he can copy his 2006 Hungarian GP win this weekend. He said: "You know, rain would be a lot of fun around here. We've been here in the wet before and for me it was one of the best races I've been involved in and actually watched back, because there was a lot of overtaking, a lot of fighting.

"...it brings something to the race, but I think even in the dry, wet or intermediate conditions we've got to make sure we're quick. Lewis proved at the last race the pace of the car is very good in dry conditions, in cool conditions. I also think we'll be there in hot conditions. Whatever the weather does we've got to be ready for it. I agree that when it's mixed conditions here it's a fun race."
