Renault Sport Academy Drivers Christian Lundgaard, Victor Martins, Max Fewtrell and Arthur Rougier resume their Formula Renault Eurocup season as the series heads to the Hungaroring for round seven this weekend.
Christian, second in the standings, and Victor, third, are aiming to pick up from where they left off at Spa in July, where they both secured wins.
Max, fourth in the championship, has the most victories in the Eurocup in 2018, and has his sights set on returning to the podium after a disappointing outing in Belgium. Arthur picked up his first points of the season last time out, and targets a similar haul in Hungary.
Christian Lundgaard – 2nd (1st Rookie), 147 points: “After a shorter break than last time, I’m really looking forward to getting back on track. It’s a new circuit for me, I’ve never been there, so that’s going to be a challenge but I love a new challenge. The team and I have been working hard all year and had some really good results, but it’s time to work even harder after Spa to retake the championship lead. The Hungaroring looks mega and I can’t wait to be back in the car and doing what I do best.”
Victor Martins – 3rd (2nd Rookie), 127 points: “The summer break has finally finished, so I’m happy to be back racing. It’s time to work just as hard as we did in the first-half of the season, and achieve our goals. I trained a lot over the summer break to be ready for this final push and to ensure I can fight for victories.”
Max Fewtrell – 4th, 125.5 points: “I’m really looking forward to getting back on track and gaining some points to close the gap to the guys ahead of me. I feel the championship position at the moment isn’t reflecting the true performance of the team and myself. I really like the circuit in Hungary, it has a nice flow to it and it suits my style. I always feel comfortable racing around there.”
Arthur Rougier – 15th (8th Rookie), 20 points: “I’m feeling confident for this race weekend. We made a big improvement at Spa to be fighting at the top. Qualifying will be important as it’s a hard circuit for overtaking. I’ve never been to the Hungaroring, but I’ve put a lot of work in on the simulator. It’s an important weekend to confirm our improvements.”
