gvdg-tweetGet a glimpse behind the scenes at the Hungarian Grand Prix. @AnthonyFrench rounds up what the teams and drivers shared on Twitter during the race weekend.


Teams and drivers immersed themselves in the sights and experiences of the old Budapest city while preparing for the last race of the first half of the season.

Adrian Sutil became the latest F1 driver to join Twitter ahead of his 100th race start, leaving Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen the only drivers in the current field not using the social network.


Red Bull led the way in first and second practice as Sebastian Vettel set fastest times in both sessions, while McLaren and Williams seemed to have made progress after last week’s Young Drivers Test at Silverstone.


Romain Grosjean headed the times in final practice but it was Hamilton and Mercedes who duly took pole by a slender margin from Vettel.


Lewis Hamilton finally secured his maiden win for Mercedes despite concerns over tyre wear, thanks in part to Vettel getting stuck behind Button. The Red Bull driver finished the race in third place behind Kimi Raikkonen.
