Red Bull report from day one of free practice for the Hungarian Grand Prix, Round 11 of the 2014 Formula 1 World Championship, at Hungaroring near Budapest.

Sebastian Vettel:

  • First Practice Session: Position: 5, Best Time: 1:27.220, Laps: 28.
  • Second Practice Session: Position: 3, Best Time: 1:25.111, Laps: 3.3

“I think we could be a little bit closer this weekend, at least today it looked a bit better, but then again we saw that people can make a big step from Friday to Saturday, particularly Williams, so we have to be careful. We hope that we can do a big enough step to keep the pace of today [for tomorrow] and to be able to use a little bit more power, but we’ll have to wait and see where we are.”

Daniel Ricciardo:

  • First Practice Session: Position: 8, Best Time: 1:27.782, Laps: 16.
  • Second Practice Session: Position: 7, Best Time: 1:25.983, Laps: 29.

“To be honest we struggled quite a lot today trying to find the grip. This circuit does tend to ramp up a lot over the weekend, this morning’s session the grip was really low for everyone and we saw a lot of people sliding. We thought we would find some more this afternoon but we didn’t quite evolve with the track, so we’ve got a bit of work to do tonight to understand that, but that’s what Friday’s are for, you learn, you try things and hopefully you put it all together Friday night in the best way for Qualifying.”
