Prema Racing secures points finish in Race 1

It was about harvesting points in FIA Formula 3 Race 1 at Hungaroring, and Paul Aron accomplished the job for PREMA Racing at the twisty venue outside Budapest. Starting from P6 on the reverse grid, the Estonian fought back to P4 with a highly-consistent performance throughout the 19-lap distance.

Dino Beganovic also gained one spot compared to his starting position and rounded out the top-10, fighting back after a tough start.

One day after taking pole for the Feature Race, Zak O’Sullivan was involved in contact with another driver on lap 12 and had to pit for a new front wing. At the end of the day, he finished 23rd.

Next up is the Feature Race tomorrow, which will feature an all-PREMA front row with O’Sullivan and Beganovic.


“A very sunny race done here in Hungary. It was quite an eventful one where we were expecting a lot of tyre degradation, and that’s what we got. It was all about managing the race as good as possible. We ended up in P4, which is a good result points-wise. A bit sad about barely missing out on the podium as the car in front was struggling a lot. Still, the difference is only one point, and we think in the long run more than in the short game. On my side, I think I can improve on some aspects for tomorrow’s race and that we can get an even better result tomorrow.”

Race 1: P4


“Sprint Race done, a really tough one. I didn’t have the best opening lap, but then I just tried to settle in and save the tyres. We didn’t really have the pace, and we have something to look at for tomorrow’s race where most points are given. We have to analyse what happened today and we will try to maximize tomorrow.”

Qualifying: P2
Starting Position Race 1: P11
Fastest Lap: 1:31.494
Race 1: P10


“Sprint Race done, it’s P23. I made a little mistake on my part running in P8 and lost the front wing. Until then, the pace looked quite strong, tyre degradation was high as expected, so it will be interesting tomorrow to see what we can do from pole and if we can manage the pace and the degradation.”

Qualifying: P1
Starting Position Race 1: P12
Fastest Lap: 1:31.091
Race 1: P23
