Charles Leclerc completed an emphatic Ferrari practice double at the Hungarian Grand Prix on Friday, as Lando Norris led a hugely impressive performance from McLaren by taking second.

Leclerc bounced back from last weekend’s disastrous crash from the lead of the French GP to set the Practice Two pace with a 1:18.445 at the Hungaroring, with Norris a little more than 0.2s behind.

The other Ferrari of Carlos Sainz, who topped the timesheet in Practice One, was marginally behind Norris in third, while World Championship leader Max Verstappen was also within 0.3s of Leclerc in fourth.

Daniel Ricciardo completed an impressive McLaren display by taking fifth ahead of Alpine’s Fernando Alonso and Aston Martin’s Sebastian Vettel, with the latter appearing to benefit from the introduction of a controversial rear wing design on his car.

Having appeared reasonably competitive in the opening session, Mercedes were well off the pace in Practice Two, with George Russell eighth and Lewis Hamilton 11th, although the seven-time world champion was hampered on his final flying lap.

It was also a disappointing day for Sergio Perez, with the second Red Bull once more well behind his team-mate Verstappen in ninth.
