The Indian, who made an impressive debut in Silverstone replacing Oscar Tunjo, scored points finishing eighth in the feature race.

This gave him his first reverse-grid pole for the sprint race, as he finished 19th, after being tagged by Koiranen's Matt Parry, needing a pitstop.

When asked by Motorsport.com, the Indian teen confirmed that he will race in Hungary, continuing to gain much required experience in the championship.

However, Maini added that he is yet to secure the seat for the fifth round in Germany, in a week's time.

The 18-year-old will race the #20 number, replacing Tunjo again, while regular Akash Nandy will continue in the #18 car and returning to the team is Richard Gonda in the #19, after missing the Silverstone race.

The Swiss team sits sixth in the standings with 22 points as Maini is 18th with four points. Nandy and Gonda are yet to score a point.
