Lewis Hamilton and Kimi Raikkonen will be the two headline acts in the Drivers' Press Conference ahead of the Hungarian GP, live on Sky Sports F1 on Thursday.

The World Champion pair currently sit fourth and third in the title race respectively and need strong results at the Hungroring to ensure they return from the summer break still in realistic contention. Raikkonen's future, meanwhile, is again likely to be a popular topic of conversation as the Lotus driver continues to be strongly linked with a 2014 Red Bull seat.

Hamilton and Raikkonen will be joined in the line-up by another man who could yet be on the move up the grid over the winter, Force India's Paul Di Resta, along with Williams team-mates Pastor Maldonado and Valtteri Bottas and Sauber rookie Esteban Gutierrez.

Friday's team bosses' conference features Mercedes Executive Director Toto Wolff, who is certain to be asked about his wife Susie's debut F1 test last week, along with the respective Team Principals from four of the bottom five outfits in the Constructors' Championship.

So make sure you tune in to both Press Conferences from the Hungaroring over the next few days - with the drivers' live at 2pm on Thursday and the team bosses' equivalent shown on Friday after GP2 qualifying from 4:15pm.
