  1. See you tomorrow

    FP3 coverage from 10:30 BST on the BBC Sport website & app

    That's it for today. There were two largely undramatic wet practice sessions, except for Alex Albon's crash which the mechanics will be working hard to fix for tomorrow.

    We will be back here from 10:30, and Jack, Jolyon, and Claire will be back with more rain-based humour on the radio from 10:55 BST.


  2. What did we learn?

    Once again, not much. But that could make qualifying more interesting tomorrow.

    Here's the weather forecast for tomorrow, although obviously things could change very quickly.

    The #bbcf1 Twitter has gone rogue

    Tom Bianchi: @bbcf1 What does a chicken with lettuce over its eyes say? Chicken Sees-a-salad! Get it?

    Apex Steering Wheels: Slept like a log last night....woke up in the fireplace.

    Tracey Pankhurst: @bbcf1 an Irishman walks into a bar, ouch!

  6. BreakingPierre Gasly is quickest in a wet second practice session in Hungary

    Earlier lap times on the soft and medium tyres, meant the quicker times remained at the top in another practice session interrupted by wet weather.

    Pierre Gasly
  7. Gasly still quickest

    And the clock has ticked down.

  8. It's raining, it's pouring...

    The rain is absolutely hammering down now.

    Jellyfish Tung: #bbcf1 given Ferrari’s track record on strategy and all things racing, Max would have more chance of winning in soap box, or maybe a Red Bull?

    Okon Enoyoh: #bbcf1 How would I know? He is driving a RedBull!

    Ilyas Bulsari: #bbcf1 a move to ferrari could be a mouth watering prospect, especially if verstappen and leclerc are team mates

    Riff: Honestly I think with the rate at which the Honda engine is improving, Verstappen is better off staying at Red Bull. Plus the RB team have shown they can provide decent strategy calls when it matters, unlike Ferrari

  10. Post update

    Everyone is still on intermediate tyres, except Hamilton who is on hards.

  11. Ferrari mini-revival?

    Andrew Benson

    BBC Sport’s chief F1 writer at the Hungoraring


    Ferrari have been having a mini-revival in recent races. Charles Leclerc came within two laps of winning in Austria, and they should have locked out the front row in Germany in dry qualifying, only for engine problems to intervene on both cars. But on paper the Hungaroring does not suit them. As Sebastian Vettel, who took a strong second from the back of the grid in the chaotic German race, said: “We are quick on the straights but we pay the price in the corners. We have a rather efficient car but we are lacking bit of downforce and this explains most of the picture and why we are sometimes up and sometimes down.” Of course, the one thing the Hungaroring lacks is long straights, and Leclerc said he “expected a bit more of a difficult weekend”.

    But Vettel was a little more optimistic: “I am fairly open-minded. On paper maybe we don’t look the favourites because of the track characteristics, but you never know. We had the same thoughts a other places and it turned out quite well, we have some new bits that hopefully give us some performance and a good direction waiting for us in the second half.”

    Those “new bits” mainly feature revised barge boards, the crucial area of flicks in front of the side pods, including the now-fashionable ‘boomerang’, so-called because it’s a curved, horizontal piece about halfway up the side of the car, in the shape of a, er, boomerang.

    F1 trumps cricket!

    And with 16 minutes left on the clock, there are a few drivers out.

  16. Post update

    "Stop Googling wizard things" from Claire to Jack is potentially the quote of the season.
