Very much so, as the circuit itself doesn't really help in the way of overtaking.
Ofc having the RBs one second in front of everyone else is just a recipe for boredom...

anyone know what happened to hamilton? way down the times. looks to me like he either crashed or had a failure of some sort. also, race looking boring. 2 red bulls out in front. hopefully webber provides some excitement in challenging vettel and hopefully button closes the gap on lewis to keep the championship interesting

Soku, Hamilton didn't have any obvious problems, just didn't do much running. The Hungaroring doesn't get used much so it speeds up quite a lot over the course of FP1 as rubber goes down. It was also quite crowded (one of the shorter circuits) so there seemed to be a lot of drivers getting in each other's way. At the end of the session I believe they said Hamilton had been fuelled up for nine laps although he only had time to do four. He was on a reasonable (but not blazing) lap when Petrov spun and ended up sideways across the track and Hamilton was one of the cars which had to abandon the lap.
