Formula Renault 3.5

Stoffel Vandoorne’s (Fortec Motorsports) pointless weekend at the Red Bull Ring allowed his McLaren Driver Development Programme colleague Kevin Magnussen (DAMS) to move back into the championship lead. Now 27 points clear of his Belgian rival, the Dane has the chance to ram home his advantage on a track where he let victory slip on the final lap of race one last year.

Will Stevens (P1 by Strakka Racing) has climbed up to third thanks to a run of five consecutive races in the points. Returning to the scene of his maiden Formula Renault 3.5 Series podium finish, the Caterham F1 Team protégé will be looking to build on his impressively consistent form.

Nigel Melker (Tech 1 Racing) and Antonio Felix da Costa (Arden Caterham) are also intent on catching the eye. The Dutchman can point to four top-three finishes in the last six races as he continues his search for his first victory, while the Portuguese has hopes of making his mark again at the circuit where he began his stunning late-season charge in 2012.

After his superb double at the Red Bull Ring, Marco Sorensen (Lotus) will be out to continue his surge up the standings and close up on the top five. And after passing up presentable opportunities in the last few meetings, Nico Muller (International Draco Racing), Arthur Pic (AV Formula) and Sergey Sirotkin (ISR) will be giving it all they have got to join the leaders.

On a winding track where DRS strategy will prove crucial, William Buller (Zeta Corse) has the chance to confirm the progress he has been making with his Italian employers, this time in the company of the returning Carlos Sainz Jr (Zeta Corse), who was sixth in Monaco. Three other drivers who could also figure large in Hungary are Carlos Huertas (Carlin), Christopher Zanella (ISR) and Jazeman Jaafar (Carlin).
