After inheriting pole position at Le Castellet – following his team-mates’ penalties – Yvan Muller topped the qualifying session at the Hungaroring.

The reigning world champion put in an brilliant performance in Q3, outclassing his rivals with a impressive first sector that was worth an advantage of nearly three tenths. This enabled him to set the fastest lap of 1:48.727 that José María López did not manage to beat, although he recovered in the second part of the lap, reducing the gap to only three hundredths. Sébastien Loeb completed the Citroën trio on top of the qualifying, posting the third fastest lap (1:49.113).

Although the final results spoke again in favour of Citroën, this qualifying session was the closest since the beginning of the season: only three tenths covered the first six cars in Q1 and the first seven in Q2.

The Honda and Chevrolet cars have considerably reduced the gap from the French machines and for the first time a Citroën driver (Loeb) risked to be eliminated in Q2 and a non-Citroën driver (Tarquini in Q2) topped a part of the session.

Pasquale Di Sabatino won his first pole position in the TC2T class.

Dušan Borković was classified tenth at the end of Q2, and this would have meant pole position on the top-ten reverse grid for tomorrow’s Race 2.

However, the Stewards of the Meeting decided to disallow all his qualifying lap times after his car failed the ride height check twice in Q2.

This will demote the Serbian driver to the back of the grid for both races, while Hugo Valente inherited pole position for Race 2, with Gianni Morbidelli alongside him.
