The Hungaroring track near Budapest will host the third round in as many weekends for the FIA Formula 3 Championship. PREMA Racing will be the chased on Hungarian soil, having scored two wins and holding the lead in both the driver and team championship. With an incredibly close pack of contenders, often separated by mere hundreds of a second on track, the pressure will stay high and smooth working, focus and preparation will be the key.
Leading the driver championship, Oscar Piastri quickly made a name for himself in the series, winning the 2020 opener and scoring three more points finishes in Austria. A 19-year-old from Melbourne Australia, Piastri is accustomed to fighting, and the closest challenge for him is currently his teammate Frederik Vesti. The 18-year-old Dane made his breakthrough to victory last weekend, dominating race 1.
Logan Sargeant is currently sitting third in standings, but his potential should not be underestimated. The 19-year-old American was hit by mechanical gremlins but brought home two podium finishes and showed outstanding pace so far this season.
Hungaroring is known as a tricky place both environmentally, due to the variable weather, and technically, for its twisty layout leaving little room for passing. PREMA Racing is ready, refreshed and prepared.
Rene Rosin - Team Principal
“The 2020 season start brought considerable success already, but we need to stay consistent, and there are many things still to optimise We hope to see our drivers get the results they deserve and to see them all battle at the top of their potential. Having so many consecutive rounds is challenging, but it also offers opportunities. We will try to stay focused and reap the benefits of having so much mileage to remain on top with all three drivers.”
