Hungaroring, the Magyar GP2 round, a fertile ground for Campos Racing

Pic took his maiden GP2 win, during Saturday´s feature race, last year at this track with one of the Dallaras GP2/11 entered by Campos Racing. Haryanto is another driver to watch closely as sits 3rd in the standings and claiming three wins so far


The GP2 Series head to Hungary for its 6th round of the season. Hungaroring, 11 miles North-East of Budapest near to the town of Mogyoród, is a circuit characterized by very high temperatures at this time of year. With to new races to be held in Hungary, Campos Racing drivers Rio Haryanto and Arthur Pic are favored by many to fight for rostrum finish.

Haryanto is completing a near-perfect season so far. His three wins at Bahrain, Red Bull Ring and Silverstone place him 3rd in the drivers´ championship of the main F.1 feeder series. At the moment, Haryanto looks like the main title contender for Stoffel Vandoorne and Alexander Rossi. One of his strengths is his incident-free season, scoring points every weekend with the exception of Monaco. On the other hand, Hungaroring brings Pic and Campos Racing good memories, as the Frenchman secured there his first win in the series in 2014. Therefore, Pic sets ambitious goals at Hungaroring: his first podium this year.


Drivers will hit the track for the very first time on Friday, with free practice at the noon and then qualifying at 15.55. Feature race is due to start on Saturday around 15.40, with pit stop strategy and tire wear management playing a key role due to high temperatures, and Sprint race on Sunday at 10.35.
