Callum Ilott secured pole position for the second race at the Hungaroring this weekend.
Ilott was just a tenth of a second faster than Joel Eriksson, who will start alongside him. Eriksson struggled in qualifying one. The team got the tyre pressures wrong and all four cars started at the back of the grid. There would be no repeat in qualifying two. He spent the majority of the session top of the times, before a quick succession of fast laps from other drivers knocked him down the order. On his final lap of the session, Eriksson jumped back up to second.
Lando Norris and Guanyu Zhou look set to restart their race one fight. Norris was stuck behind Zhou in the latter part of this morning’s race, but will now start just ahead of him. The Brit took third position, with Zhou taking fourth.
Jake Hughes took fifth fastest after starting this morning’s race from the front row of the grid. Race one pole sitter and winner, Maximilian Gunther, was sixth fastest.
David Beckmann was seventh fastest, ahead of Joey Maweson and Jehan Daruvala.
Nikita Mazepin was briefly third fastest, but dropped down the order as others improved. Ferdinand Habsburg knocked him out of the top 10, but Habsburg’s laptime was deleted. Mazepin will start the race 10th.
