Here are the latest results from the critical qualifying session for the Hungarian Grand Prix at the Hungaroring.
Qualifying is underway at the Hungaroring for the 13th round of the 2022 Formula 1 World Championship. Fears of a wet session have faded, with Q1 and Q2 taking place in dry, if ominously cloudy conditions.
The two Mercedes drivers set the quickest times at the end of Q1, with Lewis Hamilton just ahead of teammate George Russell, before Red Bull’s Max Verstappen set the fastest time in Q2 to pip Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc by 0.065 seconds.
Eliminated from Q1 were AlphaTauri’s Yuki Tsunoda and Pierre Gasly in 16th and 19th respectively, Williams’ Alex Albon in 17th with Nicholas Latifi in 20th, while Aston Martin’s Sebastian Vettel was knocked out in 18th and disappointed after his team managed to get his car repaired in time after the four-time World Champion crashed in FP3.
The big scalp knocked out in Q2 was Red Bull’s Sergio Perez in 11th, with the Mexican failing to put in a strong lap after some confusion over track limits on his first run in Q2. Initially having his time deleted, his lap was reinstated but he failed to improve enough on his second run after feeling blocked by Haas’ Kevin Magnussen.
Joining Perez on the sidelines are Magnussen, Alfa Romeo’s Zhou Guanyu, Haas’ Mick Schumacher, and Aston Martin’s Lance Stroll.
