Budapest’s Hungaroring hosts Round 6 of the 2022 FIA Formula 3 championship, with ART Grand Prix’s Victor Martins one point ahead of Hitech GP’s Isack Hadjar.

In a season that has seen five different pole sitters in five rounds, on a circuit well-known for being tough to overtake at, Friday’s Qualifying session takes on extra importance.

Charouz Racing System’s László Tóth said part of the issue stemmed from only Turn 1 being a good opportunity for overtaking, with the aid of the Drag Reduction System (DRS).

The Hungarian driver said: “Overtaking at the Hungaroring is a tricky one, because it’s only got one DRS zone. You can also do some good moves in Turn 3, but I think the best place to overtake is the main straight.”

Preparing for his home race, Tóth, 22, explained why the circuit is one of his favourites; “It’s my home race so obviously it’s a special event for me. It’s also a historic track with a tricky layout, which is quite challenging, but it has a good rhythm. I’m really looking forward to it!”

Of the championship contenders, F3 rookie Hadjar took a perfect-score of 29-points from the Feature Race of Round 5 in Austria, where he collected pole position, fastest lap and Feature Race victory.

Arthur Leclerc, younger brother of Ferrari driver Charles, won the Sprint Race in Austria and is in third place in the drivers’ standings, although leader Martins is the only driver to have won more than one Feature Race.

Qualifying on Friday is at 15:30 CEST, with the 40-minute Sprint Race on Saturday at 11:00 CEST and Sunday’s 24-lap Feature Race kicking off Grand Prix Sunday at 10:05 CEST.
