Max Chilton has seized his first GP2 pole position for Saturday’s first Feature Race in Hungary. The Englishman out-paced fellow Englishman James Calado, who now takes a penalty, with compatriot Jolyon Palmer jumping up to third. Davide Valsecchi is the best placed title contender in second, with championship leader Luiz Razia fourth.
Chilton’s best lap came in the shape of 1:28.980, with the Carlin edging out Calado’s Lotus by the tiny margin of just 23 thousandths of a second; this was the last lap to be posted and confirmed that Chilton was the only driver to achieve a sub 90-second time. Palmer could have been quicker, but lost time in the last part of the twisty lap.
Best of the rest was Caterham F1 reserve driver Giedo van der Garde, with Sauber counterpart Esteban Gutiérrez ending the period in seventh place. Fabio Leimer, Marcus Ericsson and Johnny Cecotto completed the top ten as practice pace-setter Josef Kral dropped to 11th spot.
Conditions should remain dry on Saturday, but storms could arrive on Sunday.
The Feature Race begins at 3:40pm local time (BST +1) on Saturday
