Sergio Canamasas is looking for a return to the points at the Hungaroring as the Spaniard will be contemplating his GP2 Series future with Carlin this weekend.

After starting the season well with points finishes at the Circuit de Catalunya and at the Baku Street Circuit, the last two rounds at the Red Bull Ring and Silverstone have seen Canamasas leave empty handed, despite the two circuits being ones that suit his driving style.

Canamasas is looking to improve his qualifying form this weekend and bring home some points, or the Spaniard may just call it a day with the team ahead of the next round in Germany.

“The round at Hungaroring is a key one for me, because I want to think carefully our results afterwards and evaluate if our goals have been reached,” said Canamasas.

“We are not happy about it at the moment. We have to improve and close gap to other teams. From the back of the grid is much more difficult to score points, we need to improve our qualifying form because Hungaroring resembles Monaco. If you don’t qualify well, you will struggle over the weekend.

“I hope our weekend will validate the good work we have done. I certainly hope next weekend will be completely different. I set my sights on scoring points, mainly after failing both at Red Bull Ring and Silverstone.”
