Coulthard misses cut in Q2.


British drivers Jenson Button and David Coulthard both bowed out of qualifying for the Hungarian Grand Prix at the end of the second phase after failing to summon enough pace from their Honda and Red Bull respectively.

Button did manage to find almost a full second on his final lap, but succeeded only in leap-frogging Sebastien Bourdais and Coulthard to claim twelfth on the grid, but it was not enough to give Honda a place in the top ten shoot-out.

With Nico Rosberg not taking part in the session after a hydraulic problems was diagnosed on his Williams, the rest of the field fought to avoid the four remaining places in the drop zone but, in reality only a handful were ever threatened with missing the cut.

Robert Kubica escaped after a typically late BMW Sauber appearance, while Nelson Piquet Jr and Mark Webber both posted P9 times to demote Toro Rosso's Sebastian Vettel to eleventh to ensure that the two Italian entries sandwiched the luckless Brits.

For once, Lewis Hamilton did not top the times, perhaps not showing his hand and allowing Felipe Massa and Timo Glock to better him. Glock led for much of the session before Massa usurped him, while Hamilton's McLaren team-mate Heikki Kovalainen and Toyota's Jarno Trulli rounded out the top five.
