Now he does a 1.33.698, how slow is that! last years pole time was 1.19.781. have they changed the track apart from higher kerbs at the chicane?


I don't see any visible difference in the track from last year. May be teams are sand bagging results till qualifying ... Probably a leaf from the book of BMW !!

Mclaren seems to be quicker in Sector 3. Both Lewis & Heikki are setting 22.9 while others at 23.2 or more. ...

It's a little stupid talk about lap times today, it's only FP1, time to test the more basics settings of the car. And time to destroy Alonso's engine too. FP2 will be the same

Not for the sake of lap times but Lewis has had lots of oversteer today. It affected his lap times.

Massa and Hamilton seem to be trading lap times with one another !!

Hamilton is having a lot of problems to control his car... it's not running smoothly...
Poor Vettel... I saw some smoke in his second fast lap and that was all for now...
Seems a lot of them are on vacation already.... quite boring

you only can know the limits if you touch it. (senna, but not this word)

FP1 FP2 and FP3, pilots are searching this limits, so they will have a lot of "errors"

Hamilton's car got tons of oversteer yet he's quickest in the speed trap,I don't think he's running as much rear wing as the others

McLaren has a better mechanical grip so they don't compromise aero effects. They were also the quickest car over straight line last year here in Hungaroring.

Interesting that Glock has the 'fin' on the Toyota but Trulli doesn't.

Well, it's nice to see Ferrari in front again, but I don't think we should read too much into it. McLaren is right there with them as I remember seeing some good sector times by Ham, but his car looked really twitchy and that kinda ruined it for him. So if they fix that, they are looking good indeed.

Anyway, the shark fin seems to work for Ferrari, esp for Massa, but Kimi did ok too, considering it was his first contact with it, he just needs a few more laps with it. But did you guys notice any difference in the behaviour of the car from the onboard shots? I really couldn't tell the difference from that point of view. :blush: Oh well...we'll just have to see how it works in the race I guess.

And again, Go Kimi!

I noticed actually in one pic on f1.com Kimi wasn't using the shark fin in practice.

He used it in the last minutes of the session

massa could be winning this time. remember he was on pole in monaco which si similar to this circuit and he is a great qualifier. A good qualifying is what you need to win in hungary*

* in normal conditions

Today is cloudy but not rain, isn't it?

Is expected rain for sunday?. if so, Massa could be on Pole but sure he would not win
