Defending F1 world champion Lewis Hamilton has set the fastest lap-time at the Hungarian Grand Prix ahead of his team-mate Nico Rosberg.
The Brit, who sits just one point behind teammate Rosberg in the driver championship, looked comfortable on the track, where he is a four-time winner.
Rosberg, who has signed a new two-year contract with Mercedes F1, and 1.644secs ahead of Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel. Kimi Raikkonen was fourth, ahead of the Red Bulls of Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen.
It was an encouraging session for the McLaren-Honda F1 team, the duo Alonso and Jenson Button were seventh and eighth.
Romain Grosjean made an impressive session for Haas F1, running to ninth ahead of Force India’s Sergio Perez in P10.
And also Friday morning was a comparatively incident-free practice, but McLaren’s Fernando Alonso and Jenson Button spun on the final corner and Turn 5 respectively. Vettel suffered the same fate on Turn 12, but it did not hugely affect his time.
