A red flag stoppage compromised last runs of both Campos Racing drivers and it prevented a potential top 4 effort in qualifying. Despite the setback, Hyman and Siebert secured another points-paying race
Campos Racing was able to continue points streak as South African Raoul Hyman and Argentinian Marcos Siebert made their way into the top 8 on Sunday GP3 race at the Hungaroring by finishing seventh and eighth respectively. Lady Luck wasn’t on Julien Falchero’s side as he was forced to retire after suffering a puncture while in contention for points as well.
On Friday, Hyman took 2nd place in the free practice session after setting a best lap of 1:32.440. His teammates Siebert and Falchero clocked times respectively of 1:33.943 and 1:34.847 respectively. On Saturday morning, during the qualifying session, an accident brought a red flag out when both Hyman and Siebert was on their last runs to take a spot in the top four on the starting grid. So, they both together with Falchero were forced to start from the back of the field.
In race one, Siebert moved through the field to take 11th place and Falchero came 3th ahead of Hyman. On Sunday, race 2 was plagued by incidents but Hyman and Siebert moved up the order to take the chequered flag in 7th and 8th place. As above mentioned, Falchero’s race came to an early end following a puncture.
The next GP3 Series round will take place at Spa-Francorchamps on 26-27 August.
*Marcos Siebert was given a 20-second penalty afterwards and he was dropped to 9th in race 2.
