Hauger says strategy key to Budapest success

PREMA Racing’s Dennis Hauger believes strategy across the weekend will “play a big part” in success at Round 13 of 2022 FIA Formula 2 Championship in Hunagry.

Norwegian driver Hauger has had an inconsistent season, his first in F2, as the reigning Formula 3 champion.

“Looking forward to Budapest,” the 19-year-old said. “We have done a lot of simulator work to make sure I am 100% ready.”

The Hungaroring circuit is notorious for being tough to overtake another car at, Hauger acknowledging this and saying “strategy is going to play a big part I think.”

The Red Bull Junior Team driver also said that Qualifying on Friday would be crucial too: “Qualifying will be important, which hasn’t been our strong side, so we will have to try and work things out this weekend.”

Hauger has won two races this season, but still 12th with 67-points, while PREMA team mate Jehan Daruvala sits fourth, despite not having won a Formula 2 race in 2022.

Defending Teams’ champions PREMA are fourth in the Teams’ Standings, 48-points behind new leaders ART Grand Prix.
