PREMA have had a great start to the FIA Formula 2 season collecting a race win and 62 Team Championship points in the process.
This week we brace ourselves for the third round of the season at the Hungaroring, Budapest.
Shwartzman added to his growing reputation last weekend in Styria, having won his first race. “We took the first win for me in Formula 2, which is super super cool.”
“In general, we are really happy with the performance and the car felt good throughout the whole weekend.”
The Russian’s Sprint Race didn’t go so well with a DNF at the first corner; “Unfortunately , we did just one corner. We had a slight issue with the throttle. This thing cost us some points today.”
However, he and the team will be looking forward to the forthcoming races; “We need to stay positive, work hard and prepare ourselves.”
His teammate Schumacher will be hoping for a repeat of last years win at the Hungaroring following a really unfortunate end to his weekend in Styria, Austria.
PREMA Team Principal Rene Rosin is delighted with the team and both drivers going into this weekend;
“We expected Robert to quickly become a major contender, and we are absolutely confident that Mick will be showing his way through. Having three races in three weeks is no easy task, but these are the situations in which professionalism is a deciding factor, enabling the team to smooth sail across the weekend focusing on what can make a difference.”
Both FDA drivers, Shwartzman and Schumacher are going through their preparations for the weekend with the Russian hoping to be on the podium once more.
He emphasised the importance of Qualifying through PREMA’s social media, “Its pretty hard to get past here, so qualifying is definitely the main key. Therefore, from the first lap of free practice we need to push the maximum as much as we can.”
Looking at the forecast not only in form but the weather in Hungary, Schumacher commented, “The weather looks quite spicy. it looks like it could be a wet race again, so thats something that is quite fun.”
