Sebastian Vettel closed out Formula 1 practice for the Hungarian Grand Prix at the top of the timesheets after recording an unofficial lap record at the Hungaroring in FP3.

Vettel had a quiet Friday for Ferrari in Hungary, but came roaring back through Saturday's final hour of practice running, turning in a best time of 1:17.017.

The lap was good enough to give Vettel P1 by almost half a second from Ferrari team-mate Kimi Raikkonen, sending out an ominous warning shot to rivals Red Bull and Mercedes.
