Hughes takes to the track in Hungary


  • Jake Hughes was announced as a late substitution for Carlin Buzz Racing at the Hungaroring

  • The Brit stepped into a car for the first time since his FIA F2 debut in September last year

  • After 10 months out of the cockpit, Jake looked forward to getting out on track

  • He impressed on Friday afternoon with P7 in Free Practice followed by P17 in Qualifying

  • At a track notoriously difficult for overtaking, Jake battled his way to P16 in Saturday’s opening race and P17 in the second race

  • Returning on Sunday, Jake then performed admirably in the wet weather conditions to record his best result of the weekend in P13



“Firstly I’d like to say a huge thank you to Trevor and all of the Carlin team for asking me to step into the car this weekend. After a few months out of the cockpit it was always going to be tough to jump straight back in but overall I think we can be pleased with how we performed.

Ultimately, I hope I’ve done my best to help the team learn as much as they can with the car to keep pushing forwards over the coming races. Finally, I wish Kaylen all the best with his recovery and look forward to seeing him back in the car at Spa-Francorchamps.”
