Hungary Preview

 

After a month of summer break FSR is back in action in the upcoming weekend as round 8 will take place at the twisty Hungaroring. In Germany Bono Huis returned back on the top spot of the podium and re-took the championship lead from team-mate Ivar Kalamees. The team is looking forward to continue the victory form at Hungaroring - a race which Bono has won the last three years in succession, in 2012 by executing an unusual 6-stop strategy. In World Series, the team is hoping to have better luck than at Germany, as championship leader Martin Gosbee returns back to cockpit alongside Rob van Starkenburg.

Track History:
2009 race meant no luck for Precision Motorsports as Mattias Stahre suffered from a launch control glitch and couldn't even start the race from P5 on the grid. From 2010 Bono has won all the World Championship races in hungary. In 2010 he beat Dennis Hirrle, in 2011 completely dominated and in 2012 he beat Morand after Morand's move in the final stint was deemed illegal. The 2010 World Series race was the final race of the season that was to decide the championship winner between our drivers Cyril Werdmuller and Mattias Stahre. Both drivers delivered their best performances of the season with Mattias victorious and Cyril finishing 2nd. 2011 WS race was won by Jeffrey Rietveld and last year Jack got a disconnection from P2.

Ondrej Kuncman commented:
"Hungary, similarly to Monaco always brings a bit too much of unwanted unknown factor. It is a very challenging track for drivers and qualification positions are extremely important as well. The weekend might be difficult for some drivers but as always quality will prevail over hotlappers so I'm confident we won't lose any ground in championships. Returning from the summer break the testing hasn't been as extensive as some other teams', but with rather limited setup options that practically don't allow fine tuning, especially on this track, it won't be a big problem."

Due to the characteristics of the circuit, a high number of pit stops and strategic variation is once again to be expected. Follow the WS race live on Saturday 17:30 GMT and WC on Sunday 16:30 GMT onwards to find out whether the success at Hungary continues.
