Formula 2 Hungarian Grand Prix Preview

Formula 2 returns to action this weekend as it supports Formula 1 at the Hungarian Grand Prix.

The top six

Nyck de Vries currently leads the championship by thirty one points from Nicholas Latifi. Both of them have won three races during the current campaign with de Vries securing four additional podium finishes compared to Latifi’s two.

Seventeen points separate Latifi in second and a close group of four drivers consisting of Luca Ghiotto, Sergio Sette Camara, Jack Aitken and Guanyu Zhou.

The group of four behind Latifi are quite close together with seventeen points covering Ghiotto in third and Zhou in sixth.

Of the top six only Zhou is yet to claim a race victory this season.

Rookies

Despite having not won a race yet, Zhou is currently the highest placed rookie in the Formula 2 standings, twenty eight points ahead of the next rookie, Anthoine Hubert, who is currently placed seventh in the standings.

Zhou has managed to achieve four podium finishes so far this season, all third places. Meanwhile, Hubert has won two races but those two being his only trips to the podium so far during the campaign.

Zhou is also holding the currently active longest point scoring streak in the series having not failed to finish outside of the points in the last ten races.

Having strung together seven consecutive points finishes from the feature race in Spain to the feature race in Austria, Hubert’s momentum has stalled recently having failed to finish inside the points in the last three races.

Race winners

There have been seven different race winners during the 2019 Formula 2 season to date out of the fourteen races contested.

This weekend’s races should be interesting to see whether the current run of six different winners in the last six races will have been extended by the end of the Hungarian Grand Prix.
