Alex Palou couldn´t fight for his maiden podium in the GP3 Series as another driver collided with him on lap one. In the morning the Spanish youngster quailed 7th on the starting grid for Saturday´s race at Hungaroring. Palou made a good start moving up to fifth place but another driver collided with the Spaniard and he was forced to pit after getting a flat tire. Dropping to the back of the field, and the Hungarian track being one of the toughest to overtake, Palou couldn´t improve 19th place.
