Torrential rain has brought qualifying for the Hungarian Grand Prix to a halt as storms sweep across the Hungaroring.

With soaring temperatures reaching as high as 35 degrees for FP3 just two hours before qualifying, a storm would subsequently bubble up in the area to bring heavy rain with little more than an hour to go before qualifying.

Falling heavily enough to force a delay of 20mins initially, though Q1 did get underway in wet but seemingly improving conditions, the rain would intensify again forcing a stop with 13mins of the session remaining.
