Lewis Hamilton kept his place on top of the times sheets in second practice at the Hungaroring.
The McLaren driver trailed team mate Jenson Button and Fernando Alonso during the early part of the session as the drivers lapped on soft tyres.
Alonso was one of the first drivers to switch to super-soft tyres, lowering his best time by eight tenths of a second.
Hamilton and Button then took to the track at the same time, Button lapping a few hundredths of a second off Alonso’s pace.
But Hamilton found more time, lapping almost a quarter of a second faster than the Ferrari.
Neither of the Red Bulls were able to beat that trio. Mark Webber was fourth, Sebastian Vettel four-hundredths behind in fifth.
Felipe Massa led the two Mercedes, with Michael Schumacher ending the session struggling for rear tyre grip in his long run.
The two Force Indias completed the top ten, with Paul di Resta slightly quicker than Adrian Sutil.
