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 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.
