Jack Aitken and Kevin Jorg were fastest on the two Friday sessions in Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 at the Hungaroring.

In the morning, Aitken, pole-sitter and winner of last year’s race two, topped the timesheets in a session which was mostly led by JKR duo of Jorg and Louis Deletraz.

The Brit vaulted to the top spot with five?minutes to go, just before a red flag resulted in a premature end to the session.

Ignazio D’Agosto and Matevos Isaakyan both managed to get ahead of Jorg, who ended up fourth, nine tenths behind Aitken.

Cram Motorsport’s Vasily Romanov was fifth, followed by championship leader Deletraz and Spa race winner Jake Hughes.

The top ten was completed by Tech 1’s Anthoine Hubert, Manor MP’s Dennis Olsen and AVF’s Harrison Scott.

The afternoon running saw Jorg take first as he pipped Deletraz in the final seconds. ART’s Ukyo Sasahara also posted a late improvement, relegating the championship leader to third.

Romanov continued to show strong pace in fourth, while Isaakyan, Hubert and Hughes completed the top seven.

Croatian Martin Kodric, Australian Anton de Pasquale and Briton Ben Barnicoat were eighth, ninth and tenth fastest respectively.
