An update from free practice at the Hungarian Grand Prix as the Bulls get up and running at the Hungaroring.
After Monaco, the Hungaroring is the least power-sensitive circuit of the year, with a much higher emphasis placed on downforce and chassis dynamics. Having won in Monaco, we’re highly motivated to put in an equally good performance here.
With set up especially crucial here in Budapest there was lot’s of work to be done on Friday. The Bulls made a positive start in Free Practice One with Daniel topping the time sheet at the end of the first session with a 1:17.613. The Aussie completing 30 laps in total.
Meanwhile Max completed 29 laps with a top time of 1:17.701 which was good enough for P3.
Free Practice Two saw Daniel leave the garage first as the searing sun continued to beat down on the Hungaroring. However, as the session continued cloud cover saw temperatures drop and thunderstorms threaten.
Those storms never materialised, as Max finished P2 completing 35 laps with a best time of 1:16.908. Daniel was just behind the Dutchman in P3 completing 36 laps with a best time of 1:17.061.
Saturday's Free Practice Three saw temperatures remain high, with partly cloud covered skies. Daniel finished the session P5 completing 11 laps with a time of 1:16.803. Max was close behind in P6 after completing 14 laps, with his quickest time a 1:16.946.
