Red Bull broke Formula 1’s curfew on working hours at the Hungaroring following Friday practice to make changes to the set-ups of both cars.
Red Bull broke the curfew in order to make set-up changes to Max Verstappen and Alexander Albon’s cars, the team advised RaceFans, adding it had not encountered any technical problems with the RB16s.
The team had a difficult start to the third race weekend of the season on Friday. Verstappen was eighth-fastest in first practice, the only dry session of the day, five places ahead of Albon. They intended to use second practice to evaluate several changes to its car, but the heavy rain prevented them from doing so.
“The weather has been hurting us,” Albon admitted yesterday, “as we’re trying to understand the car at a new circuit after two weeks at the Red Bull Ring.
“[First practice] wasn’t ideal and then with the downpour we couldn’t exactly try anything for [second practice].”
