Sette Camara sets the pace on Hungaroring test day

1 Mins read

Sergio Sette Camara set the best time of the day as the FIA European Formula 3 Championship arrived at the Hungaroring for round two of the season, with a day of testing before the action begins for real on Friday.

Red Bull Junior Team member Sette Camara took his Motopark machine around the Hungarian track in a time of 1m33.660s during the afternoon session to set the pace, with the Brazilian ending the day just 0.019s ahead of Prema Powerteam’s Lance Stroll.

George Russell and Maximilian Günther made it a quad of sophomore drivers inside the top, for Hitech GP and Prema respectively, while another Red Bull-backed driver, Niko Kari, was the best-placed rookie driver in fifth, ahead of Motopark team-mates Joel Eriksson and Guan Yu Zhou.

Callum Ilott, a race winner at Paul Ricard along with Stroll and Günther, was eighth quickest for Van Amersfoort Racing, with Prema Powerteam’s Nick Cassidy ninth overall despite being one of only two drivers to set his quickest time during the morning session.

Anthoine Hubert ended the day with the tenth quickest time for Van Amersfoort Racing, ahead of Ralf Aron and Harrison Newey.

Mikkel Jensen is likely to be forced to use a replacement tub this weekend after damage was caused to the monocoque of his Mücke Motorsport machine after hitting a loose drainage cover between turns four and five. The Danish driver was unable to return to the track during the afternoon session because of the damage.
