Formula One: Ricciardo dominates Hungarian practice

'Elbows out' for Ricciardo at Hungary GP

"Compared to Daniel, who seemed very happy [yesterday], so we changed a lot on the vehicle, a lot of hard work, I think it was one of the hardest weekends of my career in F1".

"I definitely feel like we have found some grip in various areas and taken a step in the right direction".

Ricciardo's time of 1 minute 18.455 seconds - just 0.019 seconds off the all-time lap record - underlined how comfortable he was in his auto.

"Because I am at the tail end of that pack I need to force my way through".

"We'll find a way to be quick tomorrow", said the 2014 Hungarian GP victor.

Ferrari's Kimi Räikkönen, Mercedes's Lewis Hamilton and Red Bull Racing's Max Verstappen were 0.3 seconds off the pace in fourth, fifth and sixth respectively.

"It's super tight between Ferrari, Red Bull and ourselves at the top of the leaderboard, so it's looking like it will be an exciting weekend", said Hamilton, who can take a record-equalling 68th career pole on Saturday.

Although Hamilton was happy with his car's pace, he felt the balance needs to be improved - an issue that has cropped up a few times this season for Mercedes.

The Australian, whose auto has a major aerodynamic update, was 0.234 seconds quicker than Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen.

Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo of Australia.

Vettel was more than a second slower than Ricciardo in sixth place on a warm but cloudy morning at the Hungaroring outside Budapest.

"It will be an interesting race and I'm actually quite confident for tomorrow".

Pascal Wehrlein also met with the barriers in the second session, the Sauber driver destroying the left-hand side of his auto, and Ferrari-backed rookie Antonio Giovinazzi smashed his Haas during the first session. Former F1 driver Robert Kubica will test with Renault at this track next week as the team assess whether the Pole is capable of returning to the sport more than six years after a horrific rally crash left him with only partial use of his right arm.

The opening session in the morning featured one red flagged stoppage and the second session had two with both Pascal Wehrlein of Sauber and luckless Jolyon Palmer of Renault smacking into the barriers.

The incident did irreparable damage to Ricciardo's Red Bull, which went off the circuit and was spilling a lot of oil.
