    Ai, bad news for the teams. The training is shortened due to the work and ends anyway at 1 p.m. Yesterday there was little driving due to the rain, so the teams were unable to collect much data. This usually results in a nice qualification and race.

    GP Hungary · one hour ago

    The start of the training has been postponed by at least ten minutes . There is a lot of oil on the track, caused by a broken Formula 2 car. The marshalls are busy working to clean up the oil.

    The marshals are working hard to clear oil on the track There will be a 10 minute delay to FP3 - we will be under way soon! # F1 #HungarianGP 🇭🇺

    Hamilton would love to prove Rosberg wrong
    It is not good for Lewis Hamilton that his former teammate Nico Rosberg spoke highly of Max Verstappen this week. According to the German, the young Dutchman would be at the top of the World Cup position if he had the same car as Hamilton. "I wouldn't mind having Max as a teammate," said Hamilton in Hungary, where the twelfth race of the year will be held on Sunday. "I read stories that I only win because Max and I have different cars. If he would become my teammate, I can prove that this is not the case."
