Valtteri Bottas says he is expecting a more difficult time in Hungary as he bids for his fourth consecutive podium finish.

The Finn claimed the first rostrum of his Formula 1 career in Austria and followed it up by driving to second place in both Britain and Germany.

But Bottas is anticipating Williams to face a tougher challenge around the Hungaroring, at which he was eighth fastest in second practice, 1.5s behind pace setter Lewis Hamilton.

"It was an interesting Friday, we went through all the updates and I'm really happy that they have worked as we expected, so we've made steps forward with the car," he said.

"This circuit is tighter and it's going to be more difficult for us than the last three grands prix. It's going to be really close tomorrow so we need to work hard to find every tenth and maybe even every hundredth of a second we can gain with the set-up."

Team-mate Felipe Massa was 10th.

"It's not a perfect track for us but we'll try everything we can for qualifying tomorrow to be as competitive as possible," he said.

"We have run both cars with the new rear wing and it's very positive so far."
