Sauber Junior Team gain places during second F3 race in Hungary

The Sauber Junior Team completed the fifth round of the FIA Formula 3 Championship in Hungary with a resilient performance during Sunday’s second race, having battled significant tyre wear.

The outcome of Saturday’s opening race decided the grid for the second 22-lap encounter of the weekend, which took place in warm and sunny conditions at the tight and twisty Hungaroring Circuit.

F3 podium finisher Fabio Scherer started from P15, F3 Asia Champion Raoul Hyman took the start from P22, while ADAC F4 Champion Lirim Zendeli was P29 after suffering at the hands of an engine issue a day earlier.

Hungaroring yields no F3 reward for Sauber Junior Team

The Sauber Junior Team’s young trio of FIA Formula 3 Championship drivers were left empty-handed in the opening race of the weekend in Hungary on Saturday.

F3 Asia Champion Raoul Hyman, F3 podium finisher Fabio Scherer and reigning ADAC Formula 4 champion Lirim Zendeli arrived confident of gains, after a recent run of points results.
