OMAN’S AL-ZUBAIR HUNGRY FOR SUCCESS AS THE PORSCHE
MOBIL 1 SUPER CUP HEADS TO THE HUNGARORING
MOGYORÓD (HUNGARY): Oman’s Al-Faisal Al-Zubair will be aiming to finish in the points and climb the championship standings when he tackles the sixth round of the Porsche Mobil 1 Super Cup at the Hungaroring, near Budapest, this weekend.
The Lechner Racing Middle East team driver has recorded points-scoring finishes at two of the five races so far, his success belying the fact that this is his first full season in such a competitive international racing series.
“I’m very excited to be racing in Hungary,” said FZ Racing’s Al-Faisal. “We were testing there a few weeks back and the team was really happy with the progress and pace. I am looking forward to racing there and hopefully getting into the points once again and to continue learning and improving.”
German driver Michael Ammermüller heads to Hungary with a lead of 12 points in the series over recent Silverstone race winner Dennis Olsen. Daniel Cammish is third and Matt Campbell and Dylan Pereira round off the top five. Al-Zubair holds 17th in the main championship and eighth in the rookie standings.
The sixth round of this year’s Porsche Mobil 1 Super Cup is being held in conjunction with the Hungarian F1 Grand Prix on the renowned 4.381km, 14-turn Hungaroring, near Mogyoród. This was the first circuit ever to host an F1 race behind the old Iron Curtain – back in 1986.
Teams will be permitted a first 45-minute practice session on the course from 16.45hrs on Friday (July 28th) followed by a 30-minute qualifying session on Saturday, starting at 12.20hrs. The 14-lap race takes centre stage on the circuit from 11.30hrs on Sunday (July 30th).
