DIFFICULT TIMES FOR ARDEN DUO IN BUDAPEST

Arden International team-mates Adrian Zaugg and Bruno Senna face a tough afternoon at the Hungaroring tomorrow. The 2.722-mile Budapest circuit is one of the most gruelling on the GP2 Series calendar, with a relentless sequence of 14 corners and only a short pit straight to offer drivers a little respite. As in Monaco, overtaking opportunities are few and far between.

The dusty conditions make the circuit especially difficult -- as Zaugg and Senna found out during this morning's free practice session, when both slid off the track on several occasions. Their fortunes didn't improve during qualifying for the first of this weekend's two races and they will line up 21st and 24th respectively.

Adrian Zaugg: "Traffic problems didn't help during qualifying. The car felt good during this morning's free practice and I was happy with it. Things felt different this afternoon, however, and the session was much tougher."

Bruno Senna "I have no idea where to start... I have not been to this circuit before - that's no excuse, but it hasn't helped me work out what's wrong. The bumps are similar to those in Monaco, but this hasn't really affected me. The car feels OK. It has a little bit of understeer and a little bit of oversteer, but it doesn't lack grip so I am baffled by my lack of pace."
