Nasr On Form In Free Practice

Felipe Nasr has enjoyed a strong start to his GP2 Series weekend at the Hungaroring finishing this morning’s Free Practice session as the second fastest man on track. However hot temperatures meant that there were very few changes up and down the field throughout the session and the earlier times were the ones which remained. Julian Leal however was unfortunately one of the many who were unable improve on their initial position in the warm conditions and finished the session 22nd. Both Carlin men collected important data over the course of the 45 minute session and now look ahead to what will be another competitive qualifying session later this afternoon.

Following on from a scorching weekend of racing at Hockenheim the GP2 drivers were once again greeted with hot conditions as they took to the circuit. From the start of the 45 minute session Nasr made his intentions for the weekend clear and was soon at the very top of the leader board. The Brazilian fell briefly in the first 15 minutes however was quick to re-take the position on the next lap.

Meanwhile Leal was moving up the grid with however soon enough both he and Nasr came in to the pits for a few quick changes where they remained for about ten minutes. With just over 20 minutes remaining on the clock the Carlin duo exited the pit lane in order to take on their next run.

Over the next few laps the positions for the Carlin men remained unchanged with Nasr in second overall and Leal 22nd. Some drama came in the form of yellow flags which came out on track briefly while the collided and damaged cars of Jolyon Palmer and Johnny Cecotto made their way back to the pits; the flags would come out again as Conor Daly pulled up on the side of the track a little while later. However the rest of the session was clean for the remaining drivers on track.

The latter half of free practice failed to provide any drivers with improvements in terms of track times. However the session did provide further perfect opportunities to prepare the car ahead of this afternoon’s qualifying session. Nasr finished the morning in second and Leal in 22nd overall.

Nasr said, ‘I think we anticipated that it would be hot here like Hockenheim and we had made some changes in between which have worked well and I have a great feeling in the car. It may only be practice but it’s good to have this from the start and have a good feel for the car. The track is physically demanding and I think we’ll also see the rear tyres working quite a lot too but I’m sure we will be able to carry this on to qualifying later today.’

Qualifying for the Feature Race will get underway at 15.55 local time this afternoon.
