Chevrolet drivers are back on top
ROUNDS 9 & 10 – HUNGARORING QUALIFYING REPORT
The Chevrolet team made up from a disappointing qualifying session last week at the Slovakia Ring, as their three drivers were back on top filling the first three spot on the grid for tomorrow’s Race 1.
Yvan Muller pipped his team-mates Rob Huff and Alain Menu, beating them by a quarter and a half of a second respectively. Gabriele Tarquini confirmed to be their closest competitor, and qualified his SEAT León car in fourth position.
Proteam Racing’s Mehdi Bennani won pole position in the Yokohama Trophy, while James Nash managed to cut himself a place in Q2 despite Team Aon’s troubles in finding the best set up for their Ford Focus cars.
Franz Engstler qualified tenth, and therefore won pole position on the reversed grid for Race 2.
QUALIFYING PENALTY FOR CORONEL AND CERQUI
Both ROAL Motorsport drivers Alberto Cerqui and Tom Coronel had their qualifying lap times disallowed by the Stewards for a parc fermé infringement.
The team plugged lap tops in both cars to download data during the parc fermé time after the end of Q1.
As a result, Cerqui and Coronel, who had qualified 13th and 19th respectively, will be demoted at the back of the grids for tomorrow’s two races.
