Russian Daniil Kvyat ended GP3 practice in Hungary at the head of the times for MW Arden. He had been quickest for the early part of the session, but was bumped off the top spot by Bamboo’s Lewis Williamson.
Conor Daly was third fastest for ART, just ahead of teammate Jack Harvey. Robert Visoiu and Trident’s Giovanni Venturini rounded out the top six.
It was a pretty uneventful session, but a spin by Bamboo’s Carmen Jorda just four minutes from the end caused a couple of drivers to abort their potentially best laps. Another driver left frustrated was MW Arden’s Carlos Sainz Jr., who was forced off track as he was on a time that would have lifted him well up from the 16th place he ended the session.
Fresh from his encouraging Marussia F1 test, points leader Tio Ellinas was back in 17th. ART’s Facu Regalia, second in the points, was seventh fastest.
