The day started with a qualifying session. Christian Lundgaard managed to qualify on pole position with 0,3 sec. It was his first pole position of this season. Alex Peroni and new rookie Freek Schothorst qualified outside of the top 10.
P1 Christian Lundgaard
P11 Alex Peroni
P18 Freek Schothorst
A lot of focus was needed after the start of the race. It looked for a moment that Christian Lundgaard was going to fall back to 3rd position, but he managed to keep the 2nd place. Alex Peroni and Freek Schothorst both dropped back 2 positions after the start.
The safety car came out on track after Thomas Neubauer crashed 5 min into the race. In less than 5 min the track got clear and the race restarted. Unfortunately, the gap between Lundgaard and the leader was just too big to give it a try to take back the lead.
The Hungaroring is not an easy track to overtake and that was quite clear during the rest of the race. Arthur Rougier stopped next to the track and that was the only position gain for Alex Peroni and Freek Schothorst during the second half of the race.
Finally, Christian Lundgaard crossed the finish line 2nd and took in his pocket some useful points for the remaining battle for the championship.
