F2 gets ready for the next rounds in Budapest

After six thrilling rounds there's just two remaining for the Formula Two drivers with the next stop being the championship's maiden visit to the Hungaroring in Budapest.

Before then, the drivers have plenty of time to prepare themselves thanks to the extended summer break with rounds 13 and 14 taking place on 7-9 September. The event, which begins with official testing beforehand, is set to deliver fantastic action as the race to become the 2012 champion and secure the prize Williams F1 test, draws to a close.

Runaway championship leader Luciano Bacheta remains favourite and could mathematically walk away with the honours in Hungary but it certainly won't be easy for the Brit, especially given Mathéo Tuscher's recent run of form which saw him become the youngest ever F2 winner last time out at Paul Ricard. Indeed, the 15-year-old Swiss has continually closed the gap to Bacheta and will be eager to pick up another strong points haul and push the title race into an enthralling season finale at Monza.

Christopher Zanella and Markus Pommer, the only F2 drivers to have scored points in every race, still theoretically remain in the hunt as does Mihai Marinescu but all will depend on how things pan out at the tight, twisty and technical 4.381km circuit.

The event takes place from 7 to 9 September and begins with official F2 testing on 6 September. Full coverage, including live streaming of both races, will be available on the F2 website.
