Etter noen vanskelige helger i Formel 2 håper Dennis Hauger å finne tilbake til vinnerformen på belgiske Spa i helgen. Les mer i denne pressemeldingen fra Red Bull Junior Team.
6 of the 8 remaining F2 races in the 2022 season will be contested over just 16 days, at Spa, Zandvoort and Monza. 3 weekends that may well decide the championship.
Red Bull Juniors Dennis Hauger, Liam Lawson, Ayumu Iwasa and Jehan Daruvala are very much in the hunt, knowing that nothing less than a full bag of wins and podiums will suffice.
Daruvala in his happy place
“I’ve had a great summer break and am looking forward to getting back into it,” stated the Indian 23-year-old.
“Spa is my favourite track of all. The track has been resurfaced, there are some new bits and I am really looking forward to trying it. It will be very interesting.”
Iwasa to keep the run going
“In the last 2 rounds I had good performance potential and I have to keep that going through these next 3,” explains the 20-year-old Japanese.
“Last year my results in F3 at Spa were not good but I do like the track, it is really fun to drive, really amazing.”
“I’m am very much looking forward to driving at Spa again and will see what the potential of the car and myself is in Free Practice and improve as much as we can fo Qualifying and the races. It should be good.”
Lawson with a big opportunity
“I’m supper excited for the triple header, a lot of racing before quite a large break,” enthused the 20-year-old New Zealander. “This is a big chunk of the championship where we need to make up some points. Probably 3of the most unique tracks on the calendar and I’m looking forward to all 3 of them.”
“This weekend I get to drive the F1 car as well so that will be a pretty special moment. I think that Eau Rouge is probably the most iconic part of Spa. All in all I am sure it will be a very special weekend.”
Hauger to get back to back-to-back form
Winning the Sprint Race in Monaco and the Feature in Baku back-to-back set the 19-year-old Norwegian up for a great debut season in F2 but some misfortune has left the Prema driver looking for a way back to that success.
“Spa is a very long track, its a track were you‘ve got to maximise slipstream and keep the lap clean. But also there are lots of opportunities in the races. But I definitely aim to get a good Quali. That’s been a big problem recently.”
