King ready to battle in Hungary
Date: 01 / 08 / 2019
25-year-old British driver, Jordan King is set to tackle the Hungaroring, Budapest, in the next round of 2019 FIA Formula 2 competition where the MP Motorsport driver will look to add to his impressive tally of championship points.
With consistent point-scoring appearances so far in 2019, Jordan hopes to further add to his success this weekend in Hungary as the Formula 2 competition heats up.
After a three week hiatus from driving duties, Jordan is prepared to head to one of Europe’s most challenging race circuits for another thrilling weekend of action. Ahead of him awaits the 2.722-mile, 14-turn circuit that offers a wide variety of challenges for Jordan to master.
Jordan has experienced mixed fortunes at the Hungaroring previously, having finished in the points three times from the six races he has contested at the circuit – with his best result coming in 2016 when he finished as runner up in Sunday’s Sprint Race having started on pole position.
This weekend he is determined to add to his tally of 41 points as he looks to improve on his current 10th place in the Drivers’ Championship – despite having missed the Monaco rounds due to his Indianapolis 500 commitments.
“I always look forward to coming to the Hungaroring,” Jordan said ahead of the weekend. “It is a challenging circuit to drive at – the track is incredibly technical and leaves no margin for error. This will make for a very interesting weekend!
“The goal heading here is to finish both the feature race and sprint race with some more championship points so I can chip away and move up the order. This is the last race before the summer break, so we need to do everything possible to ensure that we enter the summer break on a high!”
Jordan’s weekend will begin with qualifying on Friday 2nd August at 15:55 (BST). The feature race will be on Saturday morning at 09:10, before the sprint race gets the green flag at 10:25 on Sunday morning.
