Sunday, the weather has again played spoilsport coming disrupt handle "sprint" that took place over 45 minutes. The rain was invited on the German circuit just before the start and was eventually trapped the Campos Racing driver while conducting a good comeback.

The weekend Arthur had started yet ideally Friday, French delivering a solid performance in free practice before landing his best result of the season during qualifying. On a track he hardly knew, Pic completed the sixth fastest time ahead of his teammate one day Alexander Rossi, winner in GP2 and safe value for the class.

Saturday, Arthur has made a solid start in the long run point for fifth after the first round. Pic was even able to dispossess Felipe Nasr for fourth place at the first corner, but the reservist Williams F1 Team had recovered his property in the next curve. In sweltering heat, Arthur, who started in Pirelli soft tires, then posted a very competitive rate in the heart of lead.

In the 11th round, the French plunged into the pit lane to observe its regulatory judgment and gums fit "medium". It was then that the scorching temperatures encountered in the region dictated the outcome of the race driver 22 years. By immobilizing front of the garage of his team, the # 26 car suffered a sharp drop in oil pressure, a direct consequence of the surrounding heat. A situation that has tipped the V8 car "safe" mode and prevented Arthur to leave promptly. Raffaele Marciello, Pic immediate pursuer, had such misadventure at the same time.

A long minute passed before the French could only rejoin the track. Pushed back of the pack, the Campos pilot managed to scrounge several positions, but had to settle for 19th place. A result all the more frustrating that the winner, Mitch Evans, evolved on the same strategy as Pic and Marciello. Warned of trouble encountered by two men, the New Zealanders stopped two laps later and has adapted its capital accordingly procedure.

The next day, the French still unlucky when a downpour forced him to go through the garage to adjust the air radiator of his car inputs before departure. Alas, the French were about to leave when the light at the end of the pit lane has switched to red and Arthur forced to rush after the pack in 26th and last place.

On a wet runway, the pilot Campos opted for wisdom and floor gums "rain" while some drivers were bet from tires "dry." Peak gave a solid start to the race and pointed in fifteenth position after ten rounds. Feeling that the path was drying quickly, Arthur was engulfed in the pit lane at the 11th passage up envelopes "slick." A wise the Montelimar will unfortunately not leisure to exploit strategic choice. Simon Trummer surprised in turn pit exit, Pic, then cold tires, went head-to-tail in fast curve "Parabolika" and had to give up for good.

"After this weekend, I'm sure frustrated to have missed an opportunity to put big points, said Arthur. We had a nice card to play Saturday and could clear the podium in race 1.'s Victory Evans, who played on the same strategy and stood behind us before the waltz stops can attest. During my visit to the pits would have required that I keep a little more foot on the accelerator to avoid the engine switches to "safe" mode. Marciello experienced the same concern, while Mitch has been avoided after being warned. This is unfortunately part of motorsport.

However, there are many positives to draw from our weekend lessons, added Pic. Our race pace was very competitive, and we have been particularly successful in qualifying. Too bad we could not achieve these beautiful arrangements. Fortunately, Budapest handle happens very quickly and I really want to go bounce to move again at the forefront. "
