Hungarian GP: Vettel tops opening practice
Sebastian Vettel
Red Bull's dominance seemed apparent on Friday, as the controversy about flexible front wings looked set to continue.

Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber were a second clear of the next best runner, Robert Kubica's Renault, in the morning practice session in Hungary.

Slow-motion replays captured by the sport's broadcaster Formula One Management highlighted the extent to which the extremities of the RB6's front wing bend towards the track.

The highest-placed Ferrari was Hockenheim winner Fernando Alonso, 1.8 seconds off the pace, amid suggestions the team has decided not to run its flexible wing at the Hungaroring.

"We will see what we will end up using," said chief engineer Chris Dyer.

Red Bull's Christian Horner told the BBC: "I'm sure the Ferraris will be quick around here -- but I'm also sure the circuit will suit our car, and our drivers like driving here."

According to the official weather forecaster, there is a chance of rain for the afternoon practice session.
