We started the third free practice of the Hungarian GP with all eyes on the Red Bull drivers who dominated Friday’s running with Sebastian Vettel quickest with a 1:21.264.

2013 Hungarian Grand Prix - FridayIt’s another hot day in Budapest with early estimates that the track temp could reach up to 54’C. As Caterham put it on Twitter “You bring the frying pan, we’ll bring the eggs.”

It was a solid practice session for teams and drivers except Esteban Gutierrez who had an engine problem and the team had to change it, so he was left out of this practice session.

When the chequered flag was dropped Romain Grosjean was quickest by 0.168s over Alonso while Perez was third when he lost the rear of the car at Turn 11 and slapped the barrier with the left side of the car.
