Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc was the fastest in the Hungarian Grand Prix practice in Budapest. The practice was held ahead of the 12th round of the 2023 Formula 1 World Championship. George Russell’s Mercedes was fastest in the rain-affected Free Practice 1 session.
However, in the dry FP2 session, Charles set the fastest time of the day, narrowly ahead of Lando Norris (McLaren) and Pierre Gasly (Alpine). The session was red-flagged early on when Sergio Perez of Red Bull crashed into the tyre wall, damaging the front-left corner of his car and the team’s new updates.
