Hungarian Formula 1 Grand Prix 2014: Results, Times for Practice and Qualifying
Szilard Koszticsak/Associated Press

Formula One heads to Hungary this weekend for the final grand prix before the summer break, with Lewis Hamilton looking to close the gap to team-mate Nico Rosberg at the top of the drivers' standings.

In Germany last time out, the local driver took the glory as he came through in first, extending his lead to the other Mercedes driver to 14 points after Hamilton crashed in qualifying.

However, Rosberg has yet to record back-to-back victories in his Formula One career and Hamilton will be hoping for his sixth victory of the season as the battle at the top continues.

Williams driver Valtteri Bottas split the two Mercedes drivers in Germany and will be looking to carry on his run of three consecutive podium finishes in Budapest on Sunday.

Indeed, the Finnish driver is aiming higher even than simply a top-three finish, per Formula1.com:

We did everything perfectly and managed to keep Lewis behind in the end which got us an extra few points. But in the future, we are definitely aiming for more and this is not the maximum.

Bottas is currently sitting fifth in the standings with Ferrari's Fernando Alonso five points further up and Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo sitting in third.

Both of those drivers will be eager to grab as many points as possible as the season looks increasingly like a race for third behind the two Mercedes.

Hamilton goes into the weekend as favourite based on his form at the track—he has won four times in his seven races in Budapest—but Rosberg will certainly run him close.

Read on for full practice and qualifying results as the drivers all look to finish the first half of the season well in Hungary.
