WET AND WILD IN HUNGARY

Treacherous conditions made for an entertaining GP2 race with almost half the field not finishing. Unfortunately, for Great Britain's Adam Carroll, despite leading for much of the race he too was unable to pass the chequered flag. Because of the falling rain and spray, the 28 lap race was a rolling start under a safety car.

That didn't stop many cars spinning and Racing Engineering's Carroll moved up into first position which he held for several laps before clipping the kerb and heading straight for the Armco barrier. He continued for a lap despite no front wing before coming into the pits to get a nose cone change. He emerged in 21st position but after several laps decided conditions were too bad to push for what would have been a disappointing position, regardless of finishing the race. The race finished early after just 23 laps.

Adam Carroll: "All I can say is that I'm extremely disappointed for myself and everyone in the team. I just clipped the white line and it spun me round and I hit the wall. I'm very disappointed. "
