Exciting race ahead in Budapest

The GP3 series goes to Budapest in Hungary in round 6 of the GP3 series. The drivers will take to the Hungaroring considered the home of Hungarian motorsport. Known as the ‘The Shallow Plate’ due the 80% of the track being visible at all times and surrounded by natural valleys and green rolling hillsides providing a beautiful setting for both drivers and spectators.

After a tough round 5 at the cold and wet Nürburgring the unlucky Luciano will be looking to recapture the form which saw him take his first points of the season at Silverstone as the series fast approaches the closing stages. No stranger to the circuit, Budapest may provide the ideal opportunity to get the season back on track as Luciano has experienced glory here in past, winning in spectacular style in the Formula Renault 2.0 championships in 2010.

There are a number of twists and turns making it difficult to gather speed on the bumpy surface. The drivers will need to show resilience and determination in the battle for the point scoring positions, something Luciano has shown in abundance throughout the season. The sun is expected to shine over the weekend and so the cars will run on soft compound slick tyres to achieve maximum grip on what will be a dry and dusty track with high down force.

In the previous round Luciano put in his best qualifying performance of the season and he will be looking to repeat this on Saturday morning. A strong qualifying session will be integral as there is few overtaking opportunities on the track meaning that he will need to start high up the grid to make a real push for the point scoring positions.

The race will provide a stern test of the driver’s skill and ability in what should be a nail biting weekend of racing.
