W should he stop Red Bull in Hungary? After the third free practice session on Saturday (July 31st) disillusionment spread among the competition. Mark Webber drove another absolute weekend record in 1: 19.574 minutes. Even teammate Sebastian Vettel had trouble keeping up. The Heppenheimer was almost half a second behind his stable mate.

Ferrari without F-shaft

However, the other top teams have to worry more than Vettel before qualifying . Fernando Alonso in third place was already 1.15 seconds behind the best time. After the red cars at Hockenheim were still able to fight at the same level as Red Bull, they are worlds apart in Budapest. Felipe Massa was even 1.69 seconds behind in fifth place. Incidentally, just like Red Bull, Ferrari will compete in Budapest without an F-slot. Because of the short straights, the top speed help on the Hungaroring is not worth it.

Robert Kubica was able to push himself between the two cars from Maranello in the third practice session. As we have often seen this season, the Pole is one of the broader favorites on slow tracks. Above all, the McLaren have to accelerate in the fight against Kubica. Lewis Hamilton (6th place) and Jenson Button (9th place) got the short straw in practice.

Both Renaults faster than Mercedes

Kubica's team-mate Vitaly Petrov is also on the Hungaroring well on the way. The Russian was unusually high in seventh place. The Renault driver was even one place better than Nico Rosberg, who came in eighth as the best Silver Arrows driver. Team mate Michael Schumacher even only came in twelfth. The Kerpener cannot be satisfied with 2.3 seconds behind the leaders.

His compatriot Nico H├╝lkenberg did better than the record world champion. The rookie from the Rhineland remained in tenth place as the third-best German. He also won the duel with Williams team-mate Rubens Barrichello.

Sutil does without a new underbody

For Adrian Sutil things went badly again. After Force India dismantled the new underbody as expected in the night, the German didn't really get going with the old parts. At the end he only had the 17th time noted. Things went bad for team-mate Tonio Liuzzi too. After problems with the drive shaft, the Italian had to use large parts of theFollow training sessions out of the box.

The slowest from the German six-pack was Timo Glock again. In 22nd place he had to admit defeat to the two Lotus again. It was a bit surprising that Glock's team-mate Lucas di Grassi was the 19th best newcomer.
