With his victory in the second race at the Hungaroring, Gianni Morbidelli became the first winner of this year not to race a Citroen car. Morbidelli felt pressure from Tiago Monteiro throughout the race, with whom he even collided in the sixth turn of the last lap. The contact slowed them down enough that Hugo Valente came close to them in third place, but we didn’t see any more attempts to overtake them in the last half lap, and the trio drove across the finish line 1.2 seconds apart.
Serb Dusan Borkovic, who finished the qualification as the tenth fastest, was left without the best starting position in the second race this weekend, when the racers are in a hurry in Hungary. Borković would have started the second race, where the first ten riders start the race in reverse order, from the best starting position, but the commissioners erased Borković's qualifying times because his Chevrolet was too low. He will thus start both races from scratch. "I respect all the decisions of the FIA commissioners. Although I am shocked, I will not comment on today's decision to disqualify me for the low bottom of the car, even though the bottom was damaged when driving over the curb and no one could influence it. Tomorrow I will do my best, "said Borkovic after the qualifications.
