Jean-Eric Vergne stormed to his second win of the season at the Hungaroring on Saturday afternoon, comfortably taking victory ahead of Fortec’s Alexander Rossi. The Carlin driver had an advantage of almost 20 seconds over his American rival at the chequered flag, while Sergio Canamasas inherited third place after the stewards opted to hand Brendon Hartley a ten second time penalty.
Daniel Ricciardo was an unfortunate victim of the slippery track surface en route to the grid, spinning out on a damp patch caused by overnight rainfall. Second place man Daniil Move made the best getaway, diving into the lead just moments after the start. However, he ran wide at Turn 1 and allowed pole-sitter Vergne to regain control.
Brendon Hartley and Robert Wickens made early progress as the lights went out, moving up the order with some strong first lap driving. Carlin driver Wickens went on to complete a pass on Jan Charouz as the field embarked on Lap 2, holding a tight line next to the pit wall before being squeezed in a similar manner to Rubens Barrichello when he was overtaking Michael Schumacher at the same venue last year.
Vergne began to pull away with ease as the race settled down, leaving the drivers behind to fight for the remaining spots on the podium. Rossi made it up to second with ten minutes remaining on the clock, taking advantage of Hartley’s damaged front wing. Hartley’s day took another hit after receiving his time penalty, dropping the New Zealander from a potential podium finish all the way down to eighth.
Adam Carroll was promoted to an impressive fourth as a result, reaching the finish line just ahead of Wickens who completed a strong comeback. Kevin Korjus, winner of three races so far this year, claimed sixth ahead of Nelson Panciatici and Hartley, while Nathanael Berthon and César Ramos completed the top ten.
