Pierre Gasly kicks up spray behind his wheels. Budapest, Hungary. July 2023.

In a session of limited running, it was George Russell who topped the timesheets of FP1 in Hungary.

With changeable conditions throughout, drivers spent minimal time on track especially as the only dry portion of the session was red flagged after a Sergio Perez crash.

The Mexican put his tyre on the grass exiting Turn 4 and spun into the barrier at Turn 5, piling even more pressure on his shoulders.

That crash could not have come at a worse time with not only Red Bull adding new parts to the car but also with Daniel Ricciardo back on the track with his new team AlphaTauri.

After the session was green flagged, the heavens opened and few drivers seemed willing enough to brave the conditions with the likes of Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton preferring the comfortable surroundings of inside the garage.
