Devlin DeFrancesco gears up for the Hungaroring

The FIA Formula 3 European Championship heads to the Hungaroring in Budapest for it’s second round of the 2018 season this weekend. After a disappointing Pau, Devlin is hungry to get his campaign back on track.

The 4.381 km circuit is home to Formula One’s Hungarian Grand Prix, which takes place in July, but will play host to the young rising stars of the single seater world this weekend. Dubbed ‘Monaco without the walls’, overtaking can be notoriously tricky - but not impossible, with the track playing host to many exciting races over the years.

The Canadian-Italian was plagued by mechanical issues at the first round of the season earlier this month around the Circuit Pau de Ville in France, but was able to take away several positives as well as invaluable experience from the outing, with excellent pace in the first practice session of the weekend, sitting comfortably in the top ten of a field of twenty-two drivers on his first outing to the narrow street circuit.

This will be the reigning Spanish F3 Champions 2nd visit to the Hungarian track after showing great promise in his Euroformula Open track debut qualifying on the front row. Played over 3 races, in front of the ever enthusiastic DTM crowds, Devlin will be looking to capitalise on all points opportunities to get  his champion bid well and truly started.

Looking ahead Devlin commented: “Pau was obviously one to forget. The team have been working super hard there’s a few unknowns with this weekend but we hope to be competitive”
