BUDAPEST, July 27: Sebastian Vettel bounced back after his embarrassing ‘home’ exit last Sunday by outpacing both Red Bulls to top the times for Ferrari in Friday’s second practice for this weekend’s Hungarian Grand Prix. In a car that carried a black diagonal stripe in memory of his team’s former chairman Sergio Marchionne, who died earlier this week, the German delivered consistent speed in stifling heat at the Hungaroring. He crashed out of last weekend’s German Grand Prix after leading until a rainstorm created treacherous conditions in which title rival Lewis Hamilton excelled as he stormed to victory from 14th on the grid. Vettel acknowledged that he had to overcome some emotional and mental strain when he said: “It is best for me to get in the car and do what I have to do — a lot of work is best and to get your head away and work and not think of anything else.” IANS
