The famous Hungaroring venue in Budapest is hosting the second round of the Formula V8 3.5 schedule this weekend. Lining-up at the Hungarian Grand Prix venue, the Lotus squad captured a valuable points finish in Saturday's race one. Roy Nissany crossed the line in sixth place after providing a good start and some pretty entertaining battles.

On the other hand, René Binder had a complicated day since the morning qualifying. The Austrian's race was jeopardized by a low grid position. As a consequence, he was forced to attempt a bold recovery drive on a very twisty track, where overtaking is always difficult.

René Binder (#3) Q1 P11 - Race 1 P11

”It was a disappointing race. My first lap was not so good, and I had some issues in warming up the tyres after the safety-car. It's quite hard to recover in this series if you start from the back, like happened to me today after a difficult qualifying session. The pace was good but I couldn't really overtake the cars I had in front of me”.

Roy Nissany (#4) Q1 P8 - Race 1 P6

"I had a great start and I could overtake three or four cars, then I had some nice fights during the race. I ended up in sixth place and I think that the car was very good. Maybe I missed some performance once or twice, but generally I felt great and the pace was there. We are looking forward to tomorrow".
