After a baking hot first day of action, thundery showers hit the Hungaroring circuit ahead of Saturday's third and final practice session, with the track soaked. As the day wore on, conditions improved, meaning the decisive qualifying session took place in the dry, albeit with dark clouds still gathered above.
