BWT HWA RACELAB loses out in tyre lottery at the Hungaroring

Round three of the FIA Formula 2 Championship at the Hungaroring was determined by tyre strategy. BWT HWA RACELAB driver Giuliano Alesi (France) was in contention for a points finish in both races, but was unable to maintain his pace throughout the full race distance. He did, however, show his potential with the fastest time in free practice. Artem Markelov (Russia) was stopped in his tracks by a crash, through no fault of his own.

  • 11th and 10th place for Giuliano Alesi, DNF and 14th for Artem Markelov
  • Giuliano Alesi: "We did not get the results we were hoping for."
  • Artem Markelov: "We can hopefully use the experience gained to challenge at the front in the coming races."
  • Thomas Strick: “We are sure to find it easier in Silverstone, as far as the tyres are concerned."
