Valtteri Bottas and James Calado finished the second GP3 practice session at the Hungaroring at the head of the field, keeping their ART team on top after Calado had been quickest in the first session.
The red flags came out early into the session after Gabby Chaves stopped at Turn 10. Once his car was moved out the way the session got back underway with 22 minutes left on the clock.
A number of drivers took turn at the head of timesheets after the restart, but Bottas took control of the session at the midway point. His effort would go unmatched, with Calado getting closest and claiming second place just 0.064 seconds behind his teammate.
Tom Dillmann took third for Addax at the end of the session, nearly three tenths away from Bottas. He jumped Mitch Evans, who had to settle for fourth. Antonio Felix da Costa was fifth ahead of Rio Haryanto and Nico Muller. Michael Christensen was eighth, with Simon Trummer and Vittorio Ghirelli ninth and tenth respectively.
Brits Lewis Williamson and Adrian Quaife-Hobbs were 11th and 12th, with championship leader Alexander Sims down in 18th and over a second off the pace. Luciano Bacheta made it out on to track and completed nine laps after his shunt in the morning session.
