Rainy weather, oil-drowned track and a sleepy mood (Calm before the storm?) are the Hungarian Grand Prix characteristics of the third free practice. This stage was pretty boring, the first three positions were conquered by Valtteri Bottas, Lewis Hamilton and Sergio Perez.
This was so far the strangest Hungarian Grand Prix and because of the free practices, also the most boring one. The only significant event was the improving weather and the teams were able to start their work in an engines favoring cool weather.
Kimi Raikönnen was the first to start gathering the laps, thereby being closely followed by the other racers. Soon enough the big guys also got courage, mostly Max Verstappen, who after pushing the limits managed to pull off a spinning, however his car remained undamaged.
In the meantime the Mercedes drivers also arrived and due to what we have seen so far, guessing their positions should not be a problem. Racing Point continued to show a dynamic side, Sergio Perez was constantly in the Mercedes footsteps. The Ferraris seemed to be also stronger and showed a much better performance on the dry track: Due to Charles Leclerc they can start the qualification from the fourth position.
