Bearman: “Let’s go for some points” after P7 in Qualifying

Oliver Bearman noted that it was “A bit of an average qualifying” at the Hungaroring but was “happy with the step made from FP” after qualifying P7 for the Feature Race on Sunday.

After a good second run in the latter stages of the session, the PREMA driver found himself in 4th position going into the final run of qualifying. The British driver however was unable to improve on his final flying lap and fell down the order.

Bearman, like others, was in a constant battle between pushing on the tyre whilst trying to keep the core temperatures as cool as possible for the final sector of the lap.

The soft Pirelli tyres are extremely thermal sensitive at a circuit with the corner characteristics of the Hungaroring. Taking too much out of the tyre through sector 1 meant that the drivers had zero grip completing their laps due to them overheating. 

This caught Bearman out on his final run and thus meant he was demoted due to improvements from pole-sitter Jack Doohan, Ayumu Iwasa and Isack Hadjar.

He spoke about the improvements made from Friday morning’s free practice session, his qualifying performance and how he is in a good starting position for both the sprint and feature races this weekend:

“A bit of an average qualifying let’s say, but I’m happy with the step made from FP because I didn’t really maximise it. That put me a bit on a back foot, and I was always kind of one lap behind everyone else”

“The second run was decent, but unfortunately, I didn’t manage to improve on my second lap, which would have been nice.”

“Anyway, the car felt good today, now we head to the races where we have two decent positions, let’s go for some points”
