Hamilton beat team-mate Nico Rosberg to top spot by 0.183s at the Hungaroring circuit. The 29-year-old is bidding for a record-breaking fifth win at the track this weekend.
Behind the dominant Mercedes duo, Raikkonen hinted that he may be able to halt his disastrous 2014 form by ending the session a strong third, albeit more than half a second shy of the leading pair. The Finn beat team-mate Fernando Alonso by over four tenths, and looked more assured aboard his Ferrari than at recent grands prix.
