Commanding Vainio on pole in Budapest
|2.||A. Felix da Costa||1:36.301|
28 July 2012 – Finland’s Aaro Vainio followed on from his pace-setting practice form to grab the GP3 pole position in Hungary on Saturday morning. With a new lap record, the Finn grabbed the top spot – and the bonus points that go with it – to out-qualify António Félix da Costa of Portugal and New Zealander’s championship leader Mitch Evans.
Vainio’s ultimate lap time came in the form of 1:36.052, out-pacing his closest rival by a comfortable two and a half tenths of a second. Evans shares the second row with Stöckinger, with Buller and Lewis Williamson together in 12th and 13th places. Alex Brundle and Alice Powell will start 16th and 19th.
Race 1 begins at 5:20pm local time (BST +1) today
