Renault junior Christian Lundgaard became the fifth different pole-sitter of the FIA Formula 3 season after topping qualifying at the Hungaroring on Saturday, edging out Juri Vips.

Lundgaard put in a best lap of 1m31.761s during the closing stages of the session to take his first pole in the category by one-tenth of a second as Red Bull youngster Vips was unable to match the ART Grand Prix driver with his final effort.

Lundgaard's ART teammate and fellow Renault youngster Max Fewtrell took third place on the grid ahead of championship leader Robert Shwartzman, who was the only Prema driver to make it into the top 10 as teammates Marcus Armstrong and Jehan Daruvala struggled to P13 and P17 respectively.

Niko Kari qualified fifth ahead of Pedro Piquet and Jake Hughes, while David Beckmann, Yuki Tsunoda and Felipe Drugovich rounded out the top 10 on the grid.

The opening race of the FIA F3 weekend takes place at 1545 BST on Saturday in Hungary.
