Hungarian Grand Prix FP1 results

Australia's Daniel Ricciardo reminded Formula One's title contenders that a revived Red Bull can be a force to reckon with, after lapping fastest in practice at the Hungarian Grand Prix. Of course I love winning but that was just an awesome race.

"Four or five times this year he (Verstappen) has been in bingles and now he's the one they (fellow drivers) worry about".

Verstappen was handed a 10 second time penalty by stewards for causing a collision, but that was of little comfort to an incensed Ricciardo. Then I felt a hit. "I'll speak with Daniel in private and we'll sort it out".

Ricciardo's auto was damaged and spun out a few metres later, leading to the Australian suffering a first lap retirement for the first time.

The damaged Red Bull spun to a halt, bringing out the safety vehicle. You have to be able to look the other person in the eye.

Verstappen, meanwhile, clinched P5 by a mere 0.021 seconds from his team-mate and believes the weekend so far has been one of the toughest he has faced so far in his career.

Asked what he would say to Verstappen after the race, Ricciardo added: "The team will do their bit, I'll do mine". Hamilton in particular struggled with the balance of his vehicle.

"And was consistently the quickest auto on the circuit".

McLaren deliberately forced the Spaniard to take a plethora of grid penalties for new engine parts at the previous race in England in order to ensure his car's reliability at the Hungarian circuit, which presents the team with its best chance of points with its underpowered Honda engine.

After his accident towards the end of the session, Palmer finished 16th, 1.461s off his Renault teammate Hulkenberg.

"The Hungaroring has one of the longest runs down to Turn 1 of the season which nearly guarantees plenty of action so it should be a fascinating grand prix". It was Palmer's second off-track moment of the day after he ran wide at Turn 4 in FP1 and ripped the front wing off his vehicle.

Although Friday morning's conditions are not expected to be representative of what awaits in qualifying and the race at Budapest, it was a hugely encouraging start for the former world champions after the introduction of their much-anticipated upgrade package on the RB13.

Esteban Ocon, who sat out FP1 while Alfonso Celis drove his auto, took P11 for Force India, two tenths up on team-mate Sergio Perez, while Toro Rosso's Daniil Kvyat and the Williams' of Lance Stroll and Felipe Massa - the latter twice spinning in FP2 - filled positions 13 through to 15.
