Pressemelding: Nye viktige løp for Dennis
Dennis Hauger er klar for årets fjerde runde og to nye viktige løp i FIA Formula2 i Barcelona kommende helg.
Etter tre runder og seks løp ligger Hauger på en 12. plass med 14 poeng. Men det er kun kjørt seks av totalt 28 løp så sesongen er lang ennå.
Dennis er optimist før helgens løp etter en god test på den spanske banen nylig.
Som vanlig sendes F2-løpene på Vsport og Viaplay. Det er trening og kvalifisering på fredag, sprintløp på lørdag ettermiddag og hovedløp på søndag formiddag.

Eyes on the prize for Red Bull Juniors in Barcelona F2
#2 Jehan Daruvala (IND – Prema Dallara Mecachrome)
FIA F2 Championship position: 3rd – 36 points – after 6 of 28 races
#5 Liam Lawson (NZL – Carlin Dallara Mecachrome)
FIA F2 Championship position: 4th – 35 points – after 6 of 28 races
#8 Jüri Vips (EST – Hitech Dallara Mecachrome)
FIA F2 Championship position: 8th – 30 points – after 6 of 28 races
#17 Ayumu Iwasa (JAP – DAMS Dallara Mecachrome)
FIA F2 Championship position: 9th – 20 points – after 6 of 28 races
#1 Dennis Hauger (NOR – Prema Dallara Mecachrome)
FIA F2 Championship position: 12th – 14 points – after 6 of 28 races
With 23-year-old Indian Jehan Daruvala standing 3rd in the F2 title chase and fellow Red Bull Junior Liam Lawson, the 20-year-old New Zealander, just a point further back the lead is a clear target. Daruvala has a 16 point deficit to close but only 6 of the 28 races have been run so there are plenty of points left on the board.
Hauger looking for another step with strategy
“I’m really looking forward to Barcelona, I think we had a good test there and the pace looked pretty good, especially the last day,” enthuses the 19-year-old Norwegian.
“I’m enthusiastic to get started and I think we can do something really good and make the step this weekend. I think it’s been a good progression so far and hopefully we can make another one this weekend.”
“It’s a well known track, everyone knows it so it’s going to be down to the details. I think in Qualifying even then it is important to do the right strategy and with the tyres there has been a lot of degradation in the past so the strategy for the Feature Race will also be very important.”
“It’s going to be interesting to see how that all works out with the tyres over the weekend. Keen to get in the car.”
