Further Points For Carlin In Budapest

It was a relatively uneventful second GP3 Series race of the weekend at the Hungaroring however the end result yielded another double points finish for Carlin's Alex Lynn and Emil Bernstorff with the latter of the pair pulling off a fantastic last lap move to clinch seventh position. Lynn, was close behind Jann Mardenborough and was pushing to claim a podium but settled for fourth while Luis Sa Silva came home in 18th position.

It was once again another dry morning of racing for the GP3 drivers. With the top eight finishes from yesterday’s race reversed Bernstorff lined up fourth, Lynn fifth and Sa Silva 17th. As the lights extinguished the three Carlin men all enjoyed solid starts as they made their way in to turn one to mark the start of the 17 lap race.

By the end of the first lap both Lynn and Sa Silva had improved on their starting positions and were in fourth and 15th while Bernstorff found himself squeezed in the top ten battle and was eighth.

From this point on it was a case of reserving tyres in the opening laps of the race – as a result there were very few changes of positions and it was relatively processional. Towards the latter stages of the race Lynn, who had been looking after his tyres was able to latch on to the back of Mardenborough however despite being close he was unable to make a move and took fourth as the flag fell.

One driver who was able to take advantage of the tyres going off was Bernstorff, he could see a struggling Dean Stoneman ahead on the road and made sure to stay right up behind him and on the very last lap force an overtake to place him seventh and clinch further points. Sa Silva had a slightly more difficult race and came home in 18th position.

Lynn said, ‘I’m happy with fourth, it’s all about getting those consistent points in this championship which is vital in the battle to be at the top. We’re over half way in the championship now and we had another good weekend of picking up points. We’re doing a good job of fighting and will continue to do so throughout the championship.’

Bernstorff added, ‘I had a decent start but the first lap wasn’t the greatest and I fell to eighth then stayed there for most of the race. It’s hard to overtake here so I used the final laps to really push Dean Stoneman to use his tyres more. It worked and I was able to apply the pressure and make a move on him on the last lap to take seventh as my own. More points this weekend which is pretty positive.’
