In a new lesson strategy and, above all, effectiveness
pit, Enzo Ide and Christhoper Harvest have been imposed in the Qualifying Race in
Hungaroring. The pilots of the Team WRT to the controls of the Audi R8 LMS #33 have
resorted to a script already repeated throughout the season to make an assault on the
leadership of the category in the day of Sunday, the whole time the Parente and
Bell have had a discreet Saturday with the McLaren 650S GT3 #58. In the wake of the
Audi #33 will leave the Mercedes #88 of Rosenqvist and Vautier and the Audi #1
Vervisch and Vanthoor.
In full state of thanks after becoming a Mercedes driver in the DTM and Mahindra in Formula E, Felix Rosenqvist maintained the pole harvested by the Mercedes-AMG GT3 #88 in a good output in that braking the attacks of Christpher Harvest, Dominik Baumann and Laurens Vanthoor, three of the names of the Sprint Cup.

window pit-stop is solved with a great advantage in favor of
Felix Rosenqvist and very few changes in the head group, which only
allowed Alvaro Parente traced back three positions. However, the
script was very different once that are produced by the changes of pilots and
tyres in the pitlane. The Audi R8 LMS #33 with Enzo Ide at the wheel
took a leadership role with a pit stop much faster ahead of the
own Mercedes #88 and the Audi #1 driven by Frederic Versvich.
the Bentley Continental #8 won a place in the process

McLaren 650S #58 of the leaders of the Sprint Cup, with the concern

separated by less than a second, with the hostilities
