What they said – Hungaroring, race one

Fontana, Mirocha and Bacheta discuss the race after the champagne had been sprayed

Alex Fontana romped home for his maiden Formula Two win during an incident-packed opening race at the Hungaroing. The 20-year-old Swiss started from P4 but was able to benefit from an eventful opening few laps together with a superb overtake on Kevin Miocha to come home for the win. Mirocha finished second while Luciano Bacheta secured the final podium spot and a chance to secure the championship title in Sunday's race. Read what the top three drivers had to say after the champagne had been sprayed…

Alex Fontana

"It was a great race and a long overdue win! The qualifying was a little disappointing given how quick we were in free practice but it was still a good grid slot. I did get a bit lucky with Marinescu and Tuscher making contact and then I was able to stay behind Mirocha and use my overboost to get past him and then my speed did the rest."

Kevin Mirocha

"That race was a mixture of good and bad things! First of all everything was under control but then I just saw a lot of smoke in my mirrors and I just lifted the brakes to try and make sure I didn't get hit. This pushed me off the racing line and made my tyres a bit dirty which allowed Fontana to close. He then boosted and I had no chance at all and him overtook me. He was very quick after that but I still had good pace and it was good to finish on the podium."

Luciano Bacheta

"I was very surprised to find myself on the podium today and it feels better than a race win! I was massively lucky in the race and was fortunate to be able to stay out of trouble. I was so consistent in my lap times but I struggled with pace and I haven't been happy with the balance of the car all weekend but overall it's great to come away with third place."
