Budapest F3

Jonny suffered two technical retirements having qualified a very good twelfth

Jonny: “It’s certainly a shame, I think we were in with a good chance of winning Race 1 from the reverse grid pole. I managed to stay ahead on lap one and was then able to stay in front without having to defend everywhere so I was pretty pleased with that. Then I started to have gearbox trouble, it didn’t downshift, then it broke completely. As I said it was a real shame. Qualifying wasn’t bad and I got into the top 12 which I needed to do but really there is more to come, we still struggled a bit. In Race 3 it was OK early on but I started to have problems with the throttle staying on, in the end I couldn’t stop and had to pull in. So pretty disappointing again.”
