The 17 year old, Lando Norris, who is challenging for the European Formula 3 title in his first year in the series, impressed for McLaren as he finished second fastest, half a second behind Sebastian Vettel, on his very first run in the MCL32 F1 machine.

Norris done 91 successive laps, Honda were wowed by his time when compared to the McLaren drivers, Fernando Alonso and Stoffel Vandoorne, in qualifying for the Hungarian GP.

It must be noted, though, that the 17-year-old used a set of the ultrasofts to clock his time which were not available to Alonso – or any driver – during the Hungarian GP weekend.

The only uninvited was an on-track stoppage in the morning session, though it did not end his day prematurely and he finished with 91 laps to his name.

The 31-year-old Robert Kubica was return in to Formula 1 battle field with Renault on Wednesday, his first competitive outing in a Formula 1 car since suffering severe injuries to his right arm in a rally crash back in 2011.

The Pole speedy demonstrated that he has lost none of his ability as he finished the day fourth fastest with a 1:18.572, set on the ultrasoft Pirellis.
