NO POINTS FROM BUDAPEST AFTER TOUGH QUALIFYING AND RACE ACCIDENTS

After the disappointment of Silverstone & Hockenheim the DAMS crew & drivers came in Budapest with the ambition to come back in the top of the hierarchy and see the efforts of the team paid.

In qualifying both drivers could not make the perfect lap they expected and had to push with a car that appeared difficult to drive.

For race 1 DAMS applied some changes which improved the performance level of the cars. From 15th and 17th on the grid LOPEZ and FAUZY managed to get in the top 8 with a consistent drive and the right strategy. Unfortunately both of them were involved in accidents (before mid race for FAUZY, 13 laps from finish for LOPEZ) and did not cross the finish line.

With this disappointing result came obviously the bad position on the grid for the Sunday sprint race. From the back of the grid the 2 DAMS drivers had no hope to get in the points in this circuit where overtaking is nearly impossible.

Next Grand Prix : Istanbul 20th & 21st August
