Just 5 days after the end of the Hockenheim event, the GP2 Main Series was back yesterday at the Hungaroring, for qualifying of the 7th meeting of the 2010 season. Teams and drivers were running for pole position, on a really busy 30-minute session.

Trident Racing scored 19th place with Adrian Zaugg, while Johnny Cecotto ended up in 21st. The session was heavily conditioned by traffic, as all the drivers had issues in finding the necessary space to push on the short Hungarian raceway.

The Budapest weekend will continue today with Race 1, scheduled at 15:40 on a 42-lap distance. The final heat of the weekend is starting at 10:35 on Tomorrow, on a 28-lap distance. Race 1 will be broadcasted live in Italy by Raisport2, with RAI2 providing live coverage of Race 2.

Adrian Zaugg. "It has been a very tough session. While pushing hard for a fast lap I always found some slower cars up front, that were trying to find some space themselves. With the first set of tires I managed to complete just one lap without needing to go off the ideal line. Then, with the second set of tires I finally managed to find two clean laps, but on the second one I made a mistake. Traffic was there for everybody though, I'm not looking for excuses but sometimes you need some luck to take the best out of the car, and I couldn't do it today."

Johnny Cecotto Jr. "I had a lot of trouble in trying to manage the car's potential, due to some huge understeer. In addition, it's been a nightmare from the traffic point of view. With the first set I couldn't do more than one lap without being blocked by other cars, and with the second set, a yellow flag on the last sector got added to the mix. As a consequence, I couldn't improve my times in the closing stages. It hasn't been my best day so far this season."
