Hamilton stays on top in second free practice

on

Lewis Hamilton topped the timesheet at the end of free practice 2. He went little more than two tenths quicker around the Hungaroring than Fernando Alonso. Teammate Jenson Button went third fastest, ahead of both Red Bull cars.

The most interesting part of the result is the apparent lack of pace from the Red Bull Racing cars. After having failed to impress at the German GP, so far it looks like they won't be able to do that in Hungary.

During the session, many drivers, including Fernando Alonso and Sebastian Vettel explored and slightly exceeded the limits in turn 7, running wide on the exit of the turn.
