Blomqvist To Line Up On The Front Row

Tom Blomqvist has secured another front row start for tomorrow’s opening race of the FIA Formula Three European Championship weekend which has moved to the Hungaroring, Hungary for the fourth round of the 2014 season. Blomqvist, along with his Jagonya Ayam with Carlin team mates Antonio Giovinazzi and Sean Gelael, left it later to make a mark on the session however Blomqvist was a front runner throughout the latter stages. Giovinazzi will also start from the top 10 in seventh while Gelael will start from 12th overall.

Despite grey skies and clouds at the Budapest circuit today the three Jagonya Ayam with Carlin men took to the track for the usual two free practice sessions in which Blomqvist finished fourth, Giovinazzi eighth and Gelael tenth. As ever the morning gave the drivers the perfect opportunity to reacquaint themselves with the circuit ahead of the all-important qualifying later in the day.

When the lights at the end of the pit lane marked the start of qualifying it was a relatively uneventful affair for all three drivers who left it late before taking to the track and setting their flying laps. When they did, it was a case of building up the speed over the course of the 20 minutes they had on track.

Blomqvist fought his way to second position however as the times fell he dropped down the order somewhat as battles for positions began. Giovinazzi and Gelael were also in and around the top ten as they chased what was to be their race one starting positions.

In what was to remain a drama-free session for the team, Blomqvsit made certain to set his fastest lap when needed and shot up into second position behind Esteban Ocon – despite other drivers’ attempts to knock him from position Blomqvist remained in second place, marking his starting position for tomorrow.

Blomqvsit said of his day, ‘It was a good session for us, we felt like we were a little bit short in practice but we made a few little changes in between the sessions and as a result I felt very confident during qualifying. I felt like I was pushing very hard and although I was able to pick up time in the middle sector I lost some in the final sector. But I’m looking forward to the race and it’s going to be good to have another chance to qualify again in the afternoon.’

Meanwhile, Giovinazzi and Gelael continued to improve on their times as the session came to its conclusion; with their personal best laps logged, Giovinazzi finished in seventh and Gelael 12th.

The first race of the weekend will start at 11.10 local time.
