Hungary to be a decisive round for Canamasas

The Barcelona-born driver faces his acid-test at Hungaroring. Canamasas will decide his continuity at Carlin depending on the results achieved next weekend.

Sergio Canamasas will contest the sixth round of the GP2 Series to take place at Hungaroring next weekend. The Spaniard considers that his season must hit a turning point at the Hungarian event to assess his future in the GP2 Series. Canamasas took fifth and sixth place finishes in Barcelona and Baku respectively but failed to score points at Red Bull Ring and Silverstone, which suited his driving style. Canamasas had good memories of racing in Hungary as he set the pole position and stepped third onto the podium in the 2011 Formula Renault 3.5 Series in 2011.

“The round at Hungaroring is a key one for me, because I want to think carefully our results afterwards and evaluate if our goals have been reached. We are not happy about it at the moment. We have to improve and close gap to other teams. From the back of the grid is much more difficult to score points”, Canamasas comments. He stresses: “we need to improve our qualifying form because Hungaroring resembles Monaco. If you don´t qualify well, you will struggle over the weekend. I hope our weekend will validate the good work we have done. I certainly hope next weekend will be completely different. I set my sights on scoring points, mainly after failing both at Red Bull Ring and Silverstone”.

Friday will be devoted to free practice (12.00) and qualifying (15.55) sessions. Then, Saturday´s feature race will get underway at 15.40. Finally, on Sunday, sprint race is due to start at 10.25.
