WATCH LIVE: FP3 for the Hungarian Grand Prix

Leave a comment

After dominating both practice sessions in Hungary yesterday, Lewis Hamilton will be looking to make it a hat-trick in FP3 on Saturday morning in Budapest.

Coverage of FP3 begins at 5am ET on Live Extra. CLICK HERE to watch via live stream.

The Briton has a superb record at the Hungaroring, winning there four times – a circuit record shared with F1 legend Michael Schumacher. In just seven years, he has made the circuit his own.

A fifth victory would see him at least halve teammate Nico Rosberg’s lead at the top of the drivers’ championship, so the pressure is on the German to run Hamilton as close as possible in Hungary to hang onto his advantage.

In practice yesterday, the likes of Red Bull and Ferrari battled to be the best of the rest behind the Silver Arrows, and we could see quite an interesting fight between Sebastian Vettel, Daniel Ricciardo, Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen unfold at the Hungaroring. Also watch out for supporting roles from Williams and McLaren, who could yet spring a surprise.

FP3 will give us one final indicator of the pecking order before qualifying later today, which is live on CNBC from 8am ET.

Before that, you can watch the final practice session live on Live Extra from 5am ET. CLICK HERE to watch via live stream.

INDYCAR and Dallara revealed on Monday that a front wing extension will be made available to Verizon IndyCar Series teams to use as part of the super speedway aero package for the universal aero kits.

The extensions are expected to provide an increase in front downforce, by a minimum of three percent, and teams will be free to use them as needed. Dallara is also providing an additional wicker that can be used as a part of the extension.

The change comes in the wake of drivers voicing concerns about stability at the front of the car, especially while running in traffic – concerns which surfaced initially during Indianapolis 500 practice.

More details about the change can be viewed on IndyCar’s website.
