Hungaroring F3.5: Dillmann steals dramatic pole in wet qualifying

Apr 24, 2016, 8:57 AM

AVF driver Tom Dillmann took his third Formula V8 3.5 pole at the Hungaroring, benefitting from a track limits infringement by Matthieu Vaxiviere.

Lotus driver Roy Nissany led much of the wet-weather session and headed the timesheets at the chequered flag, only for a last-gasp lap by Dillmann to put him seven tenths adrift.

However, a few seconds after that, SMP Racing driver Vaxiviere went even quicker, the Frenchman taking a tenth out of Dillmann's time, only to have his benchmark deleted for track limits.

As such, 2015 runner-up Vaxiviere had to settle for third and will line up behind a Dillmann - Nissany front row.

A full second behind the poleman was Arden's Aurelien Panis in fourth, with Fortec's Louis Deletraz taking fifth, just 0.04s ahead of Nissany's Lotus teammate Rene Binder.

Beitske Visser will start the race in seventh, ahead of Pietro Fittipaldi, Saturday winner Johnny Cecotto and Giuseppe Cipriani.

Of the 15 drivers in the field, five failed to set a time of any sort during the session, which was punctuated by two full-course yellow periods.
