FV8 Hungaroring: Dillmann on pole again in sodden conditions

Tom Dillmann picks up his third straight Formula V8 3.5 pole position at a sodden Hungaroring.
Tom Dillmann has secured his second Formula V8 3.5 pole position of the Hungaroring weekend, albeit in vastly different conditions as wet weather made heavy work for the drivers in second qualifying.

With the slippery conditions – not aided by the newly re-surfaced tarmac – catching several drivers out, Dillmann struck to the front in the closing stages with a time more than 30secs slower than what he managed on the way to pole in race one.

It was enough to deny Lotus' Roy Nissany, who looked set to start on pole for the first time in his career with a late push to the top only to be usurped by the Frenchman. Similarly, Matthieu Vaxiviere had looked set for pole when he went top in the final seconds, only to have his time deleted for exceeding track limits.

Aurelien Panis and Louis Deletraz complete the top five, ahead of Rene Binder and Beitske Visser.

Just 10 of the 15 drivers would set a lap time, with Alfonso Celis Jr at the back after being punished for his collision with Egor Orudzhev in race one.
