In keeping with his practice performances so far in 2020, Yuki Tsunoda was the fastest man in FIA Formula 2 as he laid down a marker for the competition, beating his Carlin teammate Jehan Daruvala by almost half a second.

The Red Bull junior was set for victory in Hungary before a radio fault meant he didn’t hear his team call him into the pits and he dropped back when he eventually did, climbing back to second but unable to take the win off Robert Shwartzman.

Tsunoda and Carlin have been quick in every practice session so far this season with Daruvala in second ahead of the hit and miss Felipe Drugovich in third.

The Brazilian seems to love the hard tyres in use this weekend as they were the same compound he took his first F2 win on in Austria.

UNI-Virtuosi have been one of the top teams with their rapid pairing of Callum Ilott and Guanyu Zhou consistently front runners, finishing the practice session fourth and fifth.

Dan Ticktum showed more promise at his home race ending in sixth as he strengthens his stature in the Williams driver academy with Jack Aitken down in nineteenth.

Louis Delétraz has so far failed to live up to his testing pace but he was seventh in practice ahead of Nikita Mazepin and the two ART’s of Christian Lundgaard and Marcus Armstrong.

PREMA were the team to perhaps disappoint the most with Mick Schumacher eleventh and championship leader Shwartzman fourteenth.

Guiliano Alesi is yet to see how quick he can go as he spun on his second lap and couldn’t get his car started again. He missed the remainder of the session.
