After George Russell, here is Charles Leclerc. This Friday, the Monegasque, driving his Ferrari, set the fastest time in the second free practice session of the Hungarian Formula 1 Grand Prix. Earlier in the same day on Friday, it was therefore the Briton from the Mercedes team who had done the same, during the first free practice session heavily disrupted by the rain, to open this new race weekend. For his part, this time on a dry track but also in the sun, Leclerc was the fastest and outstripped, by very little and more precisely by only 15 thousandths of a second, the McLaren of Lando Norris, on the Hungaroring circuit.
