Final practice for the Hungarian GP stayed mostly dry, bar a few early spots of rain. That meant plenty of track action but it was the familiar sight of the Silver Arrows at the top of the leaderboard.

Valtteri Bottas led his factory Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton by just 0.042s – nearly identical times.

Last year's Mercedes, the pink Mercedes of Sergio Perez, was third quick 0.161s behind Bottas.

Charles Leclerc was a respectable 4th for Ferrari 0.344s back while Lance Stroll in the 2nd pink Mercedes rounded out the top-5
