Michael Ammermüller continued his dominant form with yet another pole position this season at the Hungaroring, being the only driver to break into the 1:46s.
Lechner MSG Racing Team enjoyed more success with Ammermüller’s teammate Dan Cammish who qualified behind the championship leader in second. Dennis Olsen was third. In sunny and very hot conditions, Michael Ammermüller produced a 1:46.926 lap time that was good enough for the German’s second pole position of the season.
Behind, teammate Dan Cammish in second was the first of the rookies Dennis Olsen who posted a time 0.266 slower than Ammermüller. Further back, Matt Campbell’s pace deficit from Friday Practice appeared to have disappeared when he qualified fifth.
Championship leader and Pole sitter Ammermüller spoke about how qualifying was just a matter of patience’s: “I knew that at the end of the qualifying session, there were better grip ratios.”
Dennis Olsen starting P3 said he struggled and was fortunate that he was P3: “We were testing on the Hungaroring before, but the conditions in the qualifying could not be compared with it. I had trouble finding my rhythm and I’m glad it was enough for the third quickest time. In the race I rely on my ability to react and hope that I can make a good ground.”
Matt Campbell was not pleased with his car balance but remains optimistic for the race: “The balance of the vehicle was simply not yet optimal with us. It felt a lot better than in the open air, but we have to work a lot until the race. Basically, I really like the track and am looking forward to the race,”
