Janosz makes it two out of two in Sunday qualifying

by Valentin Khorounzhiy


RP Motorsport’s Artur Janosz took another pole position in Euroformula Open, topping Sunday qualifying of round four at Hungaroring.

As yesterday, the Pole came out on top in a fight against Campos racer Alex Palou, setting the benchmark to dethrone the Spaniard from first in the final five minutes.

Championship leader Sandy Stuvik managed a late lap to deny Palou a front row start as he completed an RP 1-2.

The Spanish karting graduate had to settle for third, joined on row two by Nicolas Pohler, who was the top performer for British outfit Team West-Tec.

Pohler’s teammate Cameron Twynham was a tenth down in fifth, narrowly leading Christopher Hoher, Konstantin Tereshchenko and Gerardo Nieto.

Andres Saravia and Henrique Baptista rounded out the top ten.

The session saw numerous lap times disallowed for track limits, with several drivers underperforming as a result. Both Janosz and Stuvik lost their earlier benchmarks during the session, while usual frontrunner Yarin Stern had his two best laps cancelled and ended up outside of the top ten.
