Hurst looking to end season on a high

Brit satisfied with progress in debut campaign

Hector Hurst believes he now has 'all the ingredients' to end his debut FIA Formula Two season on a high, beginning with next month's (7-9 September) rounds at the Hungaroring in Budapest.

The 20-year-old Brit, currently lying 10th in the drivers' standings after scoring points in all but three races this year, feels he's now reached the point where he is 'happy with the car in every situation' and can now use this to challenge for podium positions.

Hurst joined the championship on the back of a promising season in Formula Renault BARC, one of three F2 drivers this year to come from the series. His strong pace has consistently netted him points but so far he's yet to finish higher than seventh, something he's hoping to change at both Hungary and Monza. "Looking back, we've shown we can be as fast as anyone in the championship when everything is going well, and in all different conditions," said Hurst.

"However, I've not had the experience to put that into practice every time we've been out on track. I've now got to the point where I'm happy with the car in every situation, qualifying and race, so I think we've got the ingredients for a great end to the year."

Rounds 13 and 14 at the Hungaroring take place from 7-9 September with pre-event testing beforehand on 6 September. Full coverage, including live web streaming of both races, is available in the F2 website.
