Albon wrecks Toro Rosso in wet session: Hungarian GP FP2 Results
Alexander Albon's heavy shunt headlined an otherwise sedate second practice session for the Hungarian Grand Prix as drizzly conditions kept teams from the track for the most part.
Albon dipped a rear wheel onto the grass at the final corner of the Hungaroring and was spent spinning into the barriers with force. After a check in the medical centre, the Thai driver was cleared fit.
Pierre Gasly topped the timesheets ahead of red Bull team-mate Max Verstappen, although there were few representative times clocked before the rain set in.
Long stretches of the session played out with no cars on-track as the asphalt was not dampened sufficiently to run intermediate tyres, while the slicks were unsuitable due to the rain.
