  • WEHRLEIN CROWNED AS HOME HERO ROWLAND PIPS TITLE PROTAGONISTS TO VICTORY IN LONDON
    제공 wecom ~에 2024년 07월 21일

    Sport newsTAG Heuer Porsche’s Pascal Wehrlein is the Season 10 ABB FIA Formula E World Champion, as the German got the better of Jaguar TCS Racing duo Mitch Evans and Nick Cassidy at the end of a pulsating final race of the campaign in London today (21 July).The title-chasing trio entered the second London E-Prix blanketed by just four points in Wehrlein’s favour, after Cassidy pulled out a stunning lap in qualifying to claim his first pole position of 2024. Throughout the course of the 37-lap contest, the momentum then swung back-and-forth – before late-race dramas for the Jaguar pair placed the ball firmly in the Porsche driver’s court.Cassidy remained in control around the indoor/outdoor ExCeL Circuit until lap 13, when he deployed the second of his Attack Modes – slipping behind his two championship rivals in the process. That released team-mate Evans into the lead, but Wehrlein was ever-present – and evermore impatient in his attempts to prise the door open.As the laps ticked down, the duel between the pair intensified, with light contact into Turn One on lap 20 as Evans defended – to the extent that he received a black-and-white warning flag for moving under braking – and Wehrlein became increasingly frustrated.Right in their slipstream, Cassidy was patiently biding his time. With ten laps remaining, despite being the only one of the top three to have taken his Attack Modes, the New Zealander had recouped enough energy to have more left than either of the two men ahead of him and looked to be in the pound seats. And then, at the end of lap 29, disaster struck.A touch from the pursuing António Félix da Costa (Porsche) punctured one of the New Zealander’s tyres, and he was subsequently also collected by Maserati MSG Racing’s Maximilian Günther in the last corner, immediately crushing his championship challenge.One Jaguar driver’s loss looked set to be the other one’s gain, but there were further twists to the tale still to come. With Cassidy out of the equation, Evans and Wehrlein finally jinked left to take Attack Mode for the first time, but with the safety car having been called to clear up the debris, it did not activate – meaning they would need to try again at the next available opportunity.Having successfully done so, on lap 33, they followed each other into Attack Mode for the second time – only Evans missed it, turning the tables in the title battle once more. It also meant that – almost out of nowhere – Oliver Rowland was into the lead for Nissan Formula E Team, with the Briton having worked his way from ninth on the grid into a position where he was perfectly-placed to pick up the pieces.For Evans, things were about to go from bad to worse, as due to his failed Attack Mode deployment, he was on the limit for completing it before the chequered flag fell – with the penalty for not doing so being disqualification. That quashed any thoughts the New Zealander may have had of a last-gasp response, as he backed off significantly over the closing laps in order to preserve third place.With the pressure off, Wehrlein wisely settled for second, knowing that would be sufficient to clinch the coveted crown, while Jaguar secured the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship for Teams – the British manufacturer’s first world championship title since 1991 – as consolation for missing out on the biggest prize.Somewhat overshadowed by the three-way fight for glory, Rowland duly celebrated his third career triumph in the all-electric single-seater series – in the final race of Formula E’s Gen3 era before the new Gen3 Evo car takes over – having never previously scored a single point on home soil. In so doing, the Yorkshireman climbed to a career-high fourth in the Drivers’ standings.Behind Evans in third, Sébastien Buemi capped a superb end to the 2023/24 campaign for Envision Racing by scything through the field from 17th to fourth, to back up his podium finish from the previous day.Jean-Éric Vergne (DS Penske) finished fifth with Nico Müller placing sixth on his swansong for ABT CUPRA Formula E Team and Robin Frijns (Envision), Stoffel Vandoorne (DS Penske), Lucas Di Grassi (ABT CUPRA) and Jake Hughes (NEOM McLaren) rounding out the top ten.Following a four-and-a-half month break, Season 11 of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship will get underway in São Paulo, Brazil on 7 December. Pascal Wehrlein, No. 94, TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team, said: "I don't know where to start. The race was hard. Obviously, I knew I had to attack and I had to get in front of the Jags. I think Mich defended quite hard, but I still tried to overtake and pass. I don't know what happened in the end, if it was due to the safety car that got quite close to the attack mode or because he missed it. But nevertheless, I think what we did this weekend, especially, we knew that yesterday and today are the days and we need to be super focused, concentrated, and outperform probably what the car can do and what we could do here in London, because this has never been a track which is good for our car. I think we did that. I think we clearly showed some great pace. I'm very happy for myself, but even more for the team.""It feels good. I don't know what to say, it's definitely not expected. You turn up, you have a chance. But I always believed in it. The last couple of weeks, every day before my day was starting and my day finished, I said, I can do this. We can do this. Even if the last couple of races, the performance was not that strong and I was struggling a bit with the car and what I felt in the car. I said, It doesn't matter. I could see it. I taught myself every day, and I'm just super proud of everyone in the team."Oliver Rowland, No. 22, Nissan Formula E Team, said: "Amazing, starting ninth in today's type of race, we would have never expected to win, but it was a crazy race. I picked my moments in the early parts of the race, and then honestly, when I got to fourth, I just didn't want to get involved with the title fight. I was waiting. I was kind of hoping something was going to kick off, which it did in the end, and I managed to pick up the pieces and win the race."Mitch Evans, No. 9, Jaguar TCS Racing, said: “I want to be happy for the team for winning the Teams’ Championship, but I feel like we’ve been off our game on this side this weekend and also yeah bit surprised at some of the calls made against me today. A lot of discussions to be held.”  Final Classification RACE Teams Championship Standings Drivers Championship Standings ABB FIA Formula E World ChampionshipFormula ESEASON 2024SportCircuit1SportABB FIA Formula E World ChampionshipCircuitSEASON 2024Formula E00Sunday, July 21, 2024 - 10:51pmSunday, July 21, 2024 - 10:51pm

  • F1 - Piastri takes first F1 win as McLaren seal 1-2 in Hungary ahead of Hamilton
    제공 jhynes ~에 2024년 07월 21일

    Sport newsOscar Piastri claimed his first Formula 1 victory at the Hungarian Grand Prix, with team-mate Lando Norris finishing second to hand McLaren its first 1-2 finish for three years, as Lewis Hamilton took the final podium spot for Mercedes. Piastri’s win was set up at the start when he overtook Norris in Turn 1, but the Australian’s first victory was thrown into doubt late on when a strategic decision to pit Norris ahead of his team-mate in the final stops handed the British driver an undercut that put him in the lead. A lengthy team orders discussion followed, but eventually Norris ceded first place back to Piastri who led McLaren to its first one-two finish since the 2021 Italian Grand Prix. At the start of the race, polesitter Norris got away well but on the run to the first corner Piastri and Red Bull’s Max Verstappen drew level with the Briton and they went three abreast into Turn 1. Verstappen went off track and with Norris also battling to stay on track, Piastri snuck through on the inside to take the lead.Verstappen rejoined in second but with the incident being investigated, he was told to give back the place back to Norris and did so soon after. and soon after the start the championship leader handed the place back into Turn 1. At the end of a tight first stint, Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton was the first of the frontrunners to pit, from fourth place, followed by Norris and Piastri. Verstappen stayed on track, however, waiting until lap 21 to make his first stop and as the first round of tyre changes played out, Piastri returned to P1, three seconds ahead of Norris, but Hamilton had made the undercut work and he was now third ahead of Verstappen. Verstappen, with fresher tyres, closed up to Hamilton over the following laps and at the start of lap 35 he attacked into Turn 1. The Mercedes driver locked up and went wide, giving Verstappen the chance to pass on the outside into Turn 3, but on his second attempt it was the Dutchman who went off track and Hamilton held on. With Verstappen continuing to press, Mercedes eventually pitted Hamilton and the Red Bull driver began to eat into the gap to Norris ahead. Meanwhile, at the front, Piastri suffered a brief off on lap 33 and that allowed Norris to close the gap at the front to just 1.5s. On lap 45, with both Verstappen and Hamilton threatening, McLaren pitted Norris ahead of leader Piastri to cover the charge. And with Piastri staying out for two more laps, Norris’ undercut promoted him to the race lead. The strategy decision set up an increasingly techy finish for McLaren as Norris questioned the need to cede the position to Piastri and his race engineer talked the Briton into letting Piastri past. Verstappen pitted at the end of lap 49, but even though the Dutchman’s stop of 2.3s good, he emerged in fifth place behind Hamilton and Leclerc with the task of passing both in the final 20 laps. Leclerc’s defence was solid, but with Verstappen carrying more pace on fresh tyres, it was also brief. But after dismissing the Ferrari driver at the start of lap 56, Verstappen’s attempts to pass Hamilton proved frustrating and eventually debilitating. The Dutchman attacked on lap 62 but Hamilton defended well. Max went for it again on the following lap but his lunge down the inside was too late. As Hamilton turned in, Verstappen locked up and there was contact. The Red Bull driver was pitched into the air and then off track. Hamilton powered off into third and as Verstappen rejoined, Leclerc swept past to demote the Red Bull driver to fifth. At the front, Norris eventually gave way to Piastri on lap 69 and two laps later the Australian took the flag to score his maiden F1 victory. Norris completed the 1-2 for McLaren and Hamilton took the remaining podium place ahead of Leclerc. That left fifth place for a frustrated Max, who was also summoned to the stewards to review the Hamilton incident. Sainz took sixth place while another trademark Checo charge brought the team six hugely valuable points at the end of a difficult afternoon. Russell was left with eighth ahead of Tsunoda and the final point went to Aston Martin’s Lance Stroll. 2024 FIA Formula 1 Hungarian Grand Prix – Race 1 Oscar Piastri McLaren/Mercedes 70 1:38'01.989 2 Lando Norris McLaren/Mercedes 70 1:38'04.130 2.1413 Lewis Hamilton Mercedes 70 1:38'16.869 14.8804 Charles Leclerc Ferrari 70 1:38'21.675 19.6865 Max Verstappen Red Bull/Honda RBPT 70 1:38'23.338 21.3496 Carlos Sainz Ferrari 70 1:38'25.062 23.0737 Sergio Pérez Red Bull/Honda RBPT 70 1:38'41.781 39.7928 George Russell Mercedes 70 1:38'44.357 42.3689 Yuki Tsunoda RB/Honda RBPT 70 1:39'19.248 1'17.25910 Lance Stroll Aston Martin/Mercedes 70 1:39'19.965 1'17.97611 Fernando Alonso Aston Martin/Mercedes 70 1:39'24.449 1'22.46012 Daniel Ricciardo RB/Honda RBPT 69 1:38'19.913 1 lap /17.92413 Nico Hülkenberg Haas/Ferrari 69 1:38'35.173 1 lap /33.18414 Alexander Albon Williams/Mercedes 69 1:38'38.758 1 lap /36.76915 Kevin Magnussen Haas/Ferrari 69 1:38'47.291 1 lap /45.30216 Valtteri Bottas Sauber/Ferrari 69 1:38'47.398 1 lap /45.40917 Logan Sargeant Williams/Mercedes 69 1:38'54.580 1 lap /52.59118 Esteban Ocon Alpine/Renault 69 1:39'02.918 1 lap /1'00.92919 Zhou Guanyu Sauber/Ferrari 69 1:39'05.587 1 lap /1'03.598     Pierre Gasly Alpine/Renault 33 47'39.255 Retirement FIA Formula One World ChampionshipF1SEASON 2024SportCircuit1SportFIA Formula One World ChampionshipCircuitSEASON 2024F101Sunday, July 21, 2024 - 7:53pmSunday, July 21, 2024 - 7:53pm

  • VICTORY FOR WEHRLEIN IN LONDON SETS UP THREE-WAY WINNER-TAKES-ALL SHOWDOWN
    제공 wecom ~에 2024년 07월 20일

    Sport newsPascal Wehrlein has grabbed the initiative in the chase for the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship Season 10 crown, with a superb third triumph of the campaign for TAG Heuer Porsche in London today (20 July) setting the scene for a tantalising final day showdown in the British capital.Wehrlein travelled to the ExCeL Circuit 12 points shy of the summit of the standings in the all-electric single-seater series, but a virtuoso performance has vaulted him to the top of the table for the first time since Monaco almost three months ago.The German began the first of the weekend’s two London E-Prixs from third on the grid and initially conceded a place to Andretti Formula E’s Norman Nato, but he remained firmly in the front-running pack throughout. While pole-sitter Mitch Evans (Jaguar TCS Racing) and Envision Racing’s Sébastien Buemi spiritedly disputed the lead over the opening half of the race, Wehrlein sagely kept his powder dry – and his energy levels well topped-up.By mid-distance, he was into second and beginning to hassle Evans for the top spot, which he snatched with a decisive dive down the inside of his title rival into Turn One not long after. A new fastest lap immediately followed, as he exploited his extra energy and efficient Porsche powertrain in an effort to build up a gap. On both occasions that he jinked off the racing line to take Attack Mode, he narrowly retained the lead – and then swiftly bolted.Wehrlein even had the composure to deftly handle a brace of late interruptions in the form of a safety car period and Full Course Yellow, and once he had the advantage, the 29-year-old never looked like conceding it again. His bold strategy was rewarded with a seventh career victory in Formula E – and a fourth win for Porsche in as many races.Evans secured the runner-up spoils – and a potentially pivotal extra point for fastest lap by dint of digging deep on the penultimate tour – with the New Zealander benefitting from a late retirement for Maserati MSG Racing’s Maximilian Günther, who had scythed his way past at the Custom House chicane prior to pulling off a few laps later.The German’s misfortune following a brilliant drive from down in 11th on the grid also elevated Buemi, who – after his early-race heroics, moving into the lead on lap nine – was ultimately unable to keep pace with Wehrlein and Evans. The Swiss star did, however, do enough to seal third position and a first visit to the rostrum since the season curtain-raiser in Diriyah.Fellow former title-winner Nyck de Vries similarly rolled back the years with a vintage performance for Mahindra Racing to climb from 14th to fourth as the Dutchman celebrated his finest finish since returning to the series. Team-mate Edoardo Mortara followed him home in fifth – albeit more than ten seconds behind – on a stellar day for the Indian outfit.Nico Müller overcame an opening lap puncture that necessitated an unscheduled pit-stop to wind up sixth in his penultimate appearance for ABT CUPRA Formula E Team, just ahead of Jaguar’s Nick Cassidy, who arrived in London leading the championship but has now slipped to seven points adrift of Wehrlein.The New Zealander endured a difficult day, qualifying a lowly 17th – his second-worst of the campaign – and then finding himself on the receiving end of contact on multiple occasions during the E-Prix, as well as missing Attack Mode twice. For so long the hunted this year, Cassidy will henceforth be the hunter going into the last day of the season.NEOM McLaren Formula E Team’s Sam Bird, DS Penske’s Stoffel Vandoorne and Nato completed the points-scorers, with both Bird and Nato in the wars and in the barriers along the way. Sacha Fenestraz (Nissan Formula E Team) and outgoing champion Jake Dennis (Andretti) took the chequered flag inside the top ten, but dropped down the overall classification once time penalties for causing collisions were applied.With Dennis, countryman Oliver Rowland (Nissan), António Félix da Costa (Porsche) and Jean-Éric Vergne (DS Penske) falling out of mathematical contention, the battle for glory will be fought out on Sunday (21 July) between Wehrlein, Evans and Cassidy – all of whom are chasing their first Formula E crown. The race will get underway at 17:03 local time (18:03 CEST). Pascal Wehrlein, No. 94, TAG Heuer Porsche, said:"Jaguar was a bit quicker than us in qualifying but that didn’t stop us from feeling confident. We delivered a good performance and perfect strategy, even with the safety cars at the end making it more difficult. Today has been a great day, but it’s only 50%. We'll celebrate for a few minutes and then focus will quickly be on tomorrow!" Mitch Evans, No. 9, Jaguar TCS Racing, said:"Unfortunately we approached the race wrong and that cost us the victory, but I left it all out there. It's disappointing as we had the pace to win and just executed it poorly - full credit to Porsche and Wehrlein though. We'll be looking to change this for tomorrow." Sébastian Buemi, No. 16, Envision Racing, said:"We did well in qualification, so had a good start to the race and I'm pleased that we could turn this into a podium finish. I promised my little one that I'd take him on the podium if I got there, so it was great to be able to do that. We'll be looking to do our best again tomorrow."  Final Classification Drivers Championship Teams Championship ABB FIA Formula E World ChampionshipFormula ESEASON 2024SportCircuit1SportABB FIA Formula E World ChampionshipCircuitSEASON 2024Formula E00Saturday, July 20, 2024 - 10:20pmSaturday, July 20, 2024 - 10:20pm

  • F1 – Norris claims Hungarian Grand Prix pole as McLaren lock out front row
    제공 jhynes ~에 2024년 07월 20일

    Sport newsLando Norris beat team-mate Oscar Piastri by just two hundredths of a second to take pole for the Hungarian Grand Prix, as the pair handed McLaren its first front-row lockout in 12 years. F1 Drivers’ Championship leader Max Verstappen was third, another two hundredths of a second further behind.Despite light rain falling in the hour before Qualifying, the start of Q1 was judged dry enough for slick tyres and when the lights went green all 20 cars streamed out on track ahead of an expected further shower. Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton made the most of the tricky conditions with the Silverstone winner taking an early lead with a lap of 1:17.087. Carlos Sainz then moved to second for Ferrari and after taking P6 with his opening flyer, Verstappen jumped to third place with a lap of 1:17.287. The Dutchman’s team-mate Sergio Pérez was not finding similar improvements, however. Sebeth after his first run, the Mexican failed to improve on a second attempt. He stuck with the same set of tyres for a third run but midway through his flying lap he took too much of the damp kerb on the right-hand side as he went into Turn 8 and he spun off into the barriers. The red flags came out and the session was halted as his car was recovered. After an 11-minute delay and with six minutes left on the clock, the session resumed. With more rain having fallen during the halt, and with DRS disabled, it looked like improvements would be hard to come by. However, as the final minutes unfolded the track rapidly dried and the final flyer became all important. Verstappen was one of the first to profit and the Red Bull driver’s final lap of 1:17.087 initially moved him up to second behind Hamilton. It was RB’s Daniel Ricciardo who made the biggest leap, though, and the Australian put in an impressive lap of 1:17.050 to jump from 16th  to top spot at the end of the session. Others, though, were headed the other way. Pérez, already out, dropped to 16th as improvement arrived elsewhere but it was George Russell who became the biggest casualty of the session. The Briton was unable to find the same kind of pace as team-mate Hamilton and he slumped to 17th at the end of the session, exiting ahead of Sauber’s Zhou Guanyu and the Alpines of Esteban Ocon and Pierre Gasly. Verstappen was first on track at the start and new Softs the Dutchman laid down a marker with a time of 1:15.770, eight tenths clear of Hamilton who was on used tyres. Piastri then took second just 0.005s behind Verstappen as Sainz slotted into third with a second flyer ahead Aston Martin’s Fernando Alonso and Norris. In the final runs it was Norris who set the pace. The McLaren driver went quickest in the final two sectors to steal P1 with a lap of 1:16.540, with Verstappen progressing in P2 ahead of Piastri and Sainz. Hamilton narrowly avoided the exit door at the end of Q2. With both RBs through to Q3, with Tsunoda in eighth ahead of Ricciardo, seven-time champion Hamilton just scraped into Q3 in 10th place one hundredth of a second ahead of Haas’ Nico Hülkenberg, who went out in P11 ahead of Sauber’s Valtteri Bottas, the Williams pair of Alex Albon and Logan Sargeant, and the second Haas of Kevin Magnussen.With rain expected midway through the final session, the 10 remaining drivers took to the track on new Softs at the start of Q3. Verstappen was first across the line and it looked like the Red Bull driver was determined to take a ninth pole of the season as he stopped the clock in 1:15.555 to take provisional pole. Norris was finding more time, however, and the McLaren driver moved ahead of the Red Bull driver with a lap of 1:15.227.Verstappen was now under pressure and after making swift adjustments to his front wing to cure the understeer he’d experienced on his opening flyer, the Dutchman headed out for a final charge. Over the first two sectors it looked like the Dutchman might make it but after going quicker than Norris across the first two sectors his tyres faded in the final section and though he improved, his 1:15.273 only proved good enough for third as Piastri went 0.024s quicker. Norris therefore took his third career pole and his second of 2024 as McLaren recorded its first front-row lockout since the 2012 Brazilian Grand Prix. Behind them all, Tsunoda ran wide at the exit of Turn 5 and the Japanese driver was hurled into the barriers. The red flags immediately came out, Norris was denied a second lap out and the session was stopped for a second time, with just over two minutes on the clock. After a 13-minute delay the session resumed, but with only used tyres available, any improvements were unlikely. Verstappen and Alonso chose to settle and climbed out of their cars. Norris and Piastri took their place at the head of the queue to defend their positions but in the end the only diver to find a meaningful improvement on his final lap was Ricciardo who leapfrogged Tsunoda to take P9. 2024 FIA Formula 1 Hungarian Grand Prix – Qualifying 1 Lando Norris McLaren/Mercedes 1:15.227 - -2 Oscar Piastri McLaren/Mercedes 1:15.249 0.022 3 Max Verstappen Red Bull/Honda RBPT 1:15.273 0.046 4 Carlos Sainz Ferrari 1:15.696 0.469 5 Lewis Hamilton Mercedes 1:15.854 0.627 6 Charles Leclerc Ferrari 1:15.905 0.678 7 Fernando Alonso Aston Martin/Mercedes 1:16.043 0.8168 Lance Stroll Aston Martin/Mercedes 1:16.244 1.017 9 Daniel Ricciardo RB/Honda RBPT 1:16.447 1.220 10 Yuki Tsunoda RB/Honda RBPT 1:16.477 1.250 11 Nico Hülkenberg Haas/Ferrari 1:16.317 1.090 12 Valtteri Bottas Sauber/Ferrari 1:16.384 1.157 13 Alexander Albon Williams/Mercedes 1:16.429 1.202 14 Logan Sargeant Williams/Mercedes 1:16.543 1.316 15 Kevin Magnussen Haas/Ferrari 1:16.548 1.321 16 Sergio Pérez Red Bull/Honda RBPT 1:17.886 2.659 17 George Russell Mercedes 1:17.968 2.741 18 Zhou Guanyu Sauber/Ferrari 1:18.037 2.810 19 Esteban Ocon Alpine/Renault 1:18.049 2.822 20 Pierre Gasly Alpine/Renault 1:18.166 2.939  FIA Formula One World ChampionshipF1SEASON 2024SportCircuit1SportFIA Formula One World ChampionshipCircuitSEASON 2024F101Saturday, July 20, 2024 - 7:17pmSaturday, July 20, 2024 - 7:17pm

  • F1 - Norris heads McLaren 1-2 in final practice for Hungarian Grand Prix
    제공 jhynes ~에 2024년 07월 20일

    Sport newsLando Norris topped the timesheet in final practice for the 2024 FIA Formula One Hungarian Grand Prix, with the British driver beating team-mate Oscar Piastri by just four hundredths of a second to hand McLaren a 1-2 ahead of Red Bull’s Max Verstappen. At the start of the session, Verstappen’s team-mate Sergio Pérez was the first to set a time and on Hard tyres he set a slightly unrepresentative marker of 1:19.159. He was soon ousted by Verstappen who went two tenths quicker to stop the clock at 1:18.897 and then improved to 1:18.312. After reporting some understeer and heading back to the garage for a front wing adjustment, the Dutchman returned to the track on hiw own and as the quarter hour mark arrived he lowered the benchmark to 1:17.938. At last other drivers began to join the fray and Valtteri Bottas took P2 on Soft tyres with a time of 1:18.206. Alex Albon, though, was going quicker and the Williams driver jumped to P1 with a time of 1:17.646. The McLaren and Mercedes drivers were now on track, though, and Norris, on Soft tyres, took P1 with a time of 1:16.931, half a second clear of Piastri and with Hamilton and Russell in third and fourth. The RBs then popped up, with Daniel Ricciardo vaulting to second, 0.441s behind Norris, and with team-mate Yuki Tsunoda in third. Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz avoided a close call with Nico Hülkenberg in the penultimate corner as both wound up for a flying lap, but having made his way past the Haas, Ferrari driver Sainz settled into his hot lap and jumped to second place on 1:17.289. As the halfway point arrived Russell went quicker than anyone, with the Mercedes driver posting a lap of 1:16.826 to beat Norris by just over a tenth of a second. Behind them, Piastri moved back to third ahead of Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc who was making up for lost time after crashing out in FP2. Russell then improved to 1:16.564 as Hamilton climbed to P2, 0.222 off his team-mate. Norris then beat both by a margin to set a new benchmark at 1:16.098, 0.466 clear of Russell and the McLaren driver was joined by Piastri, four hundredths of a second off his team-mate. After pounding around on Hard tyres for the first two thirds of the session, the Red Bulls at last emerged on Soft tyres but Verstappen couldn’t match the pace of the McLarens and his 1:16.379 was only good enough for third. 0281 off Norris. Pérez was struggling even more and the Mexican, rooted to the bottom of the order with his earlier Hard-tyre time, could only manage 13th at the flag with his Soft-tyre effort. It meant that with the McLaren pair in the top two, with Verstappen just behind, fourth place went to Russell, with Sainz fifth ahead of Ricciardo, Albon and Hülkenberg. Tsunoda was ninth in the other RB and tenth place was taken by Hamilton. 2024 FIA Formula One Hungarian Grand Prix – Free Practice 3 1 Lando Norris McLaren/Mercedes 1:16.098 17 207.2532 Oscar Piastri McLaren/Mercedes 1:16.142 0.044 17 207.1343 Max Verstappen Red Bull/Honda RBPT 1:16.379 0.281 27 206.4914 George Russell Mercedes 1:16.564 0.466 15 205.9925 Carlos Sainz Ferrari 1:16.639 0.541 16 205.7906 Daniel Ricciardo RB/Honda RBPT 1:16.652 0.554 15 205.7557 Alexander Albon Williams/Mercedes 1:16.661 0.563 16 205.7318 Nico Hülkenberg Haas/Ferrari 1:16.696 0.598 15 205.6379 Yuki Tsunoda RB/Honda RBPT 1:16.744 0.646 16 205.50910 Lewis Hamilton Mercedes 1:16.786 0.688 14 205.39611 Charles Leclerc Ferrari 1:16.803 0.705 17 205.35112 Valtteri Bottas Sauber/Ferrari 1:16.804 0.706 20 205.34813 Sergio Pérez Red Bull/Honda RBPT 1:16.954 0.856 25 204.94814 Fernando Alonso Aston Martin/Mercedes 1:17.001 0.903 21 204.82315 Lance Stroll Aston Martin/Mercedes 1:17.085 0.987 22 204.60016 Logan Sargeant Williams/Mercedes 1:17.168 1.070 15 204.38017 Zhou Guanyu Sauber/Ferrari 1:17.291 1.193 15 204.05418 Pierre Gasly Alpine/Renault 1:17.499 1.401 15 203.50719 Kevin Magnussen Haas/Ferrari 1:17.507 1.409 17 203.48620 Esteban Ocon Alpine/Renault 1:17.575 1.477 16 203.307 FIA Formula One World ChampionshipF1SEASON 2024SportCircuit1SportFIA Formula One World ChampionshipCircuitSEASON 2024F101Saturday, July 20, 2024 - 1:49pmSaturday, July 20, 2024 - 1:49pm
