Budapest:

Lewis Hamilton posted the fastest time during Friday's second practice for the Hungarian Grand Prix, repeating his leading performance of the morning session.

The afternoon session was interrupted by rain which began less than an hour into the 90-minute practice and caused the Mercedes of seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher to skid and crash into a tire wall.

Schumacher is considered one of the best drivers in wet conditions but had a similar accident in the rain a week ago while practicing for the German Grand Prix. After Friday's collision, he climbed into a television camera tower and appeared unhurt.

Hamilton's time of 1 minute, 21.995 seconds, achieved before the rain, beat Kimi Raikkonen of Lotus by .185 seconds.

There's also a chance of rain for Sunday's race.
