Ricciardo fastest in Hungary F1 practice

Hungarian Grand Prix free practice 1 winner Daniel Ricciardo

Daniel Ricciardo led the morning timesheets in 1:18.486.

"We obviously brought some updates here and they seem to be working", said the Australian, victor in Hungary in 2014.

Valtteri Bottas was third for Mercedes ahead of Finnish compatriot Kimi Raikkonen in the second Ferrari and Lewis Hamilton in the second Mercedes.

After the second stint in his Red Bull, which is sporting an aerodynamic upgrade for the race, Ricciardo said he was confident he could put the auto on pole on Saturday.

"Today was good, it was certainly a positive day, to replicate the same pace as this morning in the afternoon [was] positive".

The Red Bull driver clocked a 1m18.486s on the supersoft Pirelli tyres, the time just 0.05 seconds slower than the fastest ever lap of the Hungaroring in an F1 vehicle, set by Rubens Barrichello in 2004.

"We started to sort out the balance a bit better, and we changed quite a lot of things on the auto".

Team boss Christian Horner hinted after the Austrian Grand Prix two weeks ago that Ricciardo and Max Verstappen would receive a "significant" upgrade for this weekend's race.

There were encouraging signs at struggling former champions McLaren, who had Fernando Alonso and Belgian team mate Stoffel Vandoorne in the top 10 in both sessions at the slowest permanent track on the calendar.

It was a frustrating morning for Haas, with Antonio Giovinazzi - in for Kevin Magnussen for FP1 - bringing out the red flag when he lost the rear at Turn 11 and ended up in the barriers.

With Robert Kubica testing for Renault next week, amid speculation about what once seemed an impossible comeback after the Pole partially severed his forearm in 2011, Palmer needs to do something special. The first off happened at the end of the morning session when the Brit - who was tenth quickest - ran wide on the kerbs on the exit of Turn 4, damaging his auto and ripping off the front wing.

Germany's Pascal Wehrlein also dumped his Sauber heavily into the barriers in the afternoon.
