Red Bull extend Hungaroring domination

Posted on | Author Keith Collantine

Mark Webber, Red Bull, Hungaroring, 2010

There was no comfort for Red Bull’s rivals at the Hungaroring this morning as the RB6s lapped the track over a second faster than anyone else.

Mark Webber set the quickest time of the weekend so far ahead of qualifying with a 1’19.574.

Team mate Sebastian Vettel’s attempt to beat it were thwarted by traffic.

The fastest driver not equipped with a Red Bull was Fernando Alonso, who was 1.15 seconds slower than Webber when the cars ran on the super-soft tyres at the end of the session.

McLaren’s fears were confirmed when Robert Kubica lapped quicker than either of their drivers in the Renault, and Vitaly Petrov was able to split Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button, as was Nico Rosberg.

But Mercedes continue to struggle with their recent upgrades. Michael Schumacher was told on the radio during the session that his rear wing was not working properly.
