Daniel Ricciardo fastest in Hungary F1 Grand Prix practice, Sebastian Vettel second

Daniel Riiciardo in action for Red Bull

"If we can maintain this tomorrow it is a B auto, so today it certainly behaved more like a B. This morning looked strong, out of the box we were the first one on a green track and basically we kept good pace".

"We know this track is one that suits us, so if we can extract every bit of that out of the vehicle we may have a shot at fighting for big points this weekend, so it has been a good day". So, I think it's going to be close. "Yeah, I think we can do it".

"Today was good, it was certainly a positive day, to replicate the same pace as this morning in the afternoon [was] positive".

Valtteri Bottas was third for Mercedes ahead of Finnish compatriot Kimi Raikkonen in the second Ferrari and Lewis Hamilton in the second Mercedes.

Fourth in the championship standings but 60 points behind Ferrari's leader Sebastian Vettel at the mid-point in the season, the Perth driver clocked a best time of one minute 18.486 seconds.

Friday's two sessions will have done little to reassure him, seeing as he also crashed right at the end of the morning's first practice.

Max Verstappen was sixth in the second Red Bull, slightly less than half a second adrift of the pace, ahead of Nico Hulkenberg in a Renault, who was 1.2 seconds down in seventh.

Meanwhile a 25-year-old Palestinian who was shot by Israeli forces in Ramallah earlier this week succumbed to his wounds. Early on Tuesday, the metal detectors were removed but barriers and other new structures remained in place.

Wehrlein was unhurt, but required a visit to the circuit medical centre while Palmer, who had damaged his auto at the end of the morning session in another accident, was able to walk back to the pits, grim-faced, but unhurt.

Both Haas drivers crashed at the fast Turn 11, Romain Grosjean incurring only light damage, but reserve driver Antonio Giovinazzi bringing out a red flag when he buried his auto in the wall, damaging the left-hand side.

Ferrari driver Vettel appeared to be struggling.

"I heard Red Bull should have a big upgrade and this should be a good track for them", said Hamilton on Thursday night.

"We are in the top three teams so to qualify sixth is basically last for us".

"It's super tight between Ferrari, Red Bull and ourselves at the top of the leaderboard, so it's looking like it will be an exciting weekend", said Hamilton, who could take a record-equalling 68th career pole in Budapest.
