Incidents prevent Campos Racing drivers from showing their true potential

Boschung and Visoiu were deprived of top ten finishes due to being hit by other rivals at the Hungaroring

Certainly a challenging and tricky weekend of the FIA Formula 2 at the Hungaroring. Ralph Boschung and Robert Visoiu were in a good position to deliver another strong performance on Hungarian soil but several collisions ruined their chances.

On Friday, during the free practice session, Visoiu and Boschung made a good start to the weekend by producing two laps of 1:28.359 and 1:28.425 respectively, a few tenths off the pace. Later in qualifying, they both made it an all Campos Racing row seven as Visoiu took 13th spot ahead of Boschung with their laps of 1:27.301 and 1:27.339.

On Saturday, Boschung moved up to 12th on lap one closely followed by Visoiu. The latter pitted for his medium set of tires on lap 8 and three laps later Boschung also making his mandatory pit stop three laps later. However, Visoiu’s came to an early end when he was hit by Sergio Canamasas on lap 25 and running in the top-ten. Boschung was also hit by Jordan king but he managed to make it to the finish in 11th place.

On Sunday, Boschung was forced to pit at the beginning losing one lap but still took the chequered flag in 16th. Visoiu was forced to retire again after making contact with Nabil Jeffri 21 laps into the race.

The FIA Formula 2 Championship will head to Spa-Francorchamps on 26-27 August after the summer break.
