Hungary European F3: Lotus F1 protege Esteban Ocon sweeps poles

Esteban Ocon, Prema, Hungaroring European F3 2014

Prema driver Esteban Ocon will start both remaining Formula 3 European Championship races at the Hungaroring from pole position.

The Lotus junior continued his stunning qualifying in Saturday afternoon's 20-minute session, locking down one pole with a 1m35.872s lap, before improving his best to a 1m35.800s to ensure that he will start both of Sunday's races from the front.

The pair of poles makes it a qualifying clean sweep for Ocon, who also started Saturday morning's first race from P1.

Ocon's Prema team-mate Antonio Fuoco left his run reasonably late, jumping to second for race two with four minutes left, before going quicker again on the next lap, down to a 1m36.099s, to snare second for race three as well.

Mucke pair Lucas Auer and Felix Rosenqvist locked down third and fourth respectively for both races, Auer actually setting the best first sector of the session, while Max Verstappen ensured the top five will be the same for both races.

Race one winner Tom Blomqvist was unable to match the pace that he showed earlier in the weekend, and will start the two races from sixth and seventh, while Antonio Giovinazzi mirrored Blomqvist's result with seventh for race one and sixth for race two.

Britons Jordan King and Jake Dennis will start race two eighth and ninth respectively, however while King will also start eighth in race three, Dennis will be back in 13th.

Nichols Latifi will start both races from the top 10, with 10th in race two and ninth in race three, while West-Tec's Felix Serralles will start the races 11th and 10th.
