The GP3 Series visits the Hungaroring near Budapest and it’s the 19-year-old’s first visit to the Hungarian venue.
Off the back of a competitive outing on home ground at Silverstone a fortnight ago, where the Welshman produced his most promising qualifying run of the year and only just missed out on adding to his points tally, Seb is determined to make continued progress a few days from now.
Driving for Status Grand Prix, the Serge DeNimes and Shazam ambassador has been working hard with the team engineers since the beginning of the season to unlock as much performance as possible and to achieve a set-up he can fully exploit in both qualifying and race trim.
The steps forward made last time out at Silverstone clearly showed a big improvement for the Marford teenager in qualifying and only an unfortunate track limits penalty – which removed his fastest lap time – prevented a potential top six start in the first of the weekend’s two races.
While the knock-on effect of that made a points finish much less likely, the overall pace produced at the wheel of his Dallara single-seater confirmed the key progress which could well deliver two strong results in rounds seven and eight this weekend in the supporting race to the Hungarian Grand Prix.
