Welsh drivers hungry for points head to Hungary!
Matt & Seb both picked up their first points of the year in Austria. Matt then followed up with a 3rd place in Race 1 at Silverstone and 5th place in race 2, although neither Jann or Seb managed to score any points. @Mattparryracing did a Twitter Q & A session earlier, here is a summary of the best answers! https://storify.com/gp3_official/twitter-q-a-from-budapest
Meanwhile Seb Morris is hoping to build on a competitive outing on home ground at Silverstone a fortnight ago, where he produced his most promising qualifying run of the year and only just missed out on adding to his points tally, after piccking up an unfortunate track limits penalty. Seb is however determined to make continued progress a few days from now.
Qualifying is likely to be the most important factor in Hungary, a circuit which is notoriously challenging where overtaking is concerned. With passing opportunities seriously limited, Seb says the ability to put the perfect lap together in the grid-determining session will be paramount. “Hungaroring is a track which should be good for hooking a lap up in qualifying, but it’s very aero dependent so racing will be difficult and overtaking a real challenge”, commented Seb, “That only emphasises what I need to do in qualifying, it’s going to be so important to nail that lap time to make sure we’re as high up the grid as we can be for race one.’
Currently Jann is 7th in the points standings with 32 points, Matt is now 9th with 23 pts and Morris is 13th with 6 points. The series is led by Luca Ghiotto from Italy with 82 points.
