Jack Aitken took pole today at the Hungarorinng ahead of his ART teammates, George Russell (2nd) and Nirei Fukuzumi (3rd).
Fukuzumi set the early pace. The Japanese driver had a slight advantage over Hubert and Hyman after their first attempts. Aitken, Maini and Calderón followed them at a not very far distance. Hubert took first place away from his teammate while other drivers such as Russell, Siebert and Alesi joined the battle from pole, although 3 tenths away from Fukuzumi. Russell climbed up to P2 between Hubert and Fukuzumi, less than a tenth of difference among the 3 of them. The other ART, Aitken’s, was P4 two tenths behind.
Maini stopped at the main straight and the session was red flagged with 2 minutes to go. This left Aitken on pole, 2 tenths ahead of Russell and Fukuzumi. Boccolacci was P4, but half a second slower than pole time and only one thousandth ahead of Hubert. Alesi, Kari, Jörg, Lorandi and Calderón completed the top 10.
