Lewis Hamilton’s mood was more like one of a title contender following the opening two practice sessions in Hungary. The McLaren driver topped both 90-minute periods, despite mixed conditions, and declared himself extremely pleased with the pace.
McLaren is yet to win a Grand Prix since Hamilton’s Montreal victory on 10 June, although the Woking team is very much threatening to take the victory in Budapest this weekend.
“I’m very, very happy,” Hamilton said, having spent the last few minutes of second practice on the pit wall. “We’ve made some good changes to this car and we’re now on the right path, so it’s been a really positive day here. Red Bull look quick though, and so do Lotus and obviously Ferrari too, so we’re not feeling too comfortable yet.
“I am happy to be back on it…I have been all year, but the car feels so much better now and I’ve got a lot of support from the fans.”
Both Hamilton and team-mate Jenson Button have won twice in Budapest. Since 2007, McLaren has only failed to win at the Hungaroring on a single occasion.
