It was Mercedes's Lewis Hamilton, who topped both the Friday practice sessions, and had company, surprisingly from the Red Bull Racing drivers Daniil Kvyat and Daniel Ricciardo.

The Red Bulls are continuing their good form at this circuit, having won last year as well. The Renault-powered car seems to like the tight and twisty Hungaroring Circuit.

Nico Rosberg was in the fourth place, over seven tenths behind his teammate, which will be a slight cause for concern.

The Ferraris had a difficult Friday, with both cars struggling to find the perfect balance amid a barrage of problems, including a front-wing failure in FP1 for the Finn.

Force India's Sergio Perez escaped injury after a massive shunt in FP1, when a rear suspension failure coming out of turn 11 sent him into the barriers and into a roll, but the Mexican walked away without any damage.

But the Vijay Mallya-owned team took precaution and withdrew both their cars from FP2 for further inspection.
