Ready to fight back after a frustrating double-header on home soil at Silverstone last time out, the Banbury-based outfit make the journey to the tight, twisty 2.7-mile Hungaroring on the outskirts of the Hungarian capital.
Renault Sport Academy racer Anthoine Hubert still leads the BWT-backed outfit’s championship charge, with the Frenchman targeting a repeat of his race-winning heroics from the streets of Monte-Carlo and Le Castellet to propel himself back towards the sharp end of the standings before the summer break.
The Hungaroring has been a happy hunting ground for the reigning GP3 Series champion in recent years, with three podiums from his past four starts, a record Hubert will be keen to extend this time around.
Likewise for the other ‘Pink Panther’,Tatiana Calderon,with the Alfa Romeo Formula 1 Test Driver an ever-present on the fringes of the points-paying positions so far this season.
Budapest has also been kind to the Colombian racer in the past, with Calderon marking her first points of the season in GP3 at the same stage in 2018.
The weekend’s action begins with practice and that all-important qualifying session on Friday [2nd August] at 12:00& 15:55 (BST) respectively.
The Feature Race is scheduled for 09:10 on Saturday, with the Sprint Race at 10:25 on the Sunday ahead of the Formula 1 ® Hungarian Grand Prix. UK-based viewers can, as always, catch all the action live on Sky Sports F1/HD.
Tatiana Calderon (#18): “I’m really looking forward to this weekend, it’s been almost three weeks with no action. Hungaroring is always been a special weekend and I think we’ve done well there in the past in GP3, so I’m definitely looking forward to that.
“We’ve had some time to analyse the last couple of rounds and I think the hot weather conditions that we’re expecting this weekend could help us, so hopefully we can score our first points of the season and turn the season around from now on.”
Anthoine Hubert (#19): “After a tough weekend at Silverstone, I’ve been looking forward to bouncing back at Budapest. I like the circuit and the place, we’ve prepared well with everybody at BWT Arden so we’ll be aiming for good points before the summer break.”
Kenny Kirwan, BWT Arden Team Manager: “After the disappointment of Silverstone, the team have been extremely busy during the break in our preparations for the forthcoming event in Hungary.
“With the high temperatures we’ve been experiencing across Europe, our expectation here is that the conditions will suit our car and tyre philosophy.
“I know that both Tatiana and Anthoine are fired up, along with everybody else at BWT Arden, and we’re very much looking forward to a successful weekend together.”
