Daniel Ricciardo was quickest again in the second practice session for the Hungarian Grand Prix after more red flags flew at the Hungaroring.
The Red Bull driver went just three-hundredths of a second faster than he had in the morning session as several drivers struggled to improve their lap times on a hotter track.
Just two-tenths of a second covered Ricciardo, Sebastian Vettel’s Ferrari and the Mercedes of Valtteri Bottas by the time the chequered flag dropped.
Kimi Raikkonen was fourth-quickest following a brief stoppage in his Ferrari. He lost throttle response in his SF70-H after making a settings change, but was able to continue shortly afterwards.
Behind the top three teams there was a large gap to Nico Hulkenberg’s Renault in seventh place. Both McLarens appeared inside the top ten, separated by the Toro Rosso of Carlos Sainz. However Stoffel Vandoorne had to drive slowly into the pits with an apparent problem.
As in the first practice session there were two stoppages due to drivers hitting trouble. Pascal Wehrlein made heavy contact with the turn 11 barriers after his Sauber snapped sideways.
Jolyon Palmer damaged his Renault for the second session in a row. He lost control at the final corner and wrecked the right-rear of his car against a barrier. He might need a gearbox change after that incident.
