Race 2 flash: Sizzling Schreiber’s double ETCC delight



Christjohannes Schreiber made it two wins from two following another action-packed counter at FIA ETCC Race of Hungaroring.

The Swiss took the lead when team-mate and compatriot Peter Rikli suffered driveshaft failure with the finish in sight and fended off a late challenge from Kazakhstan’s Alexandr Artemyev for his third win of the campaign.

Hungary’s Norbert Nagy completed the podium, much to the joy of his home fans, who had been disappointed earlier in the race when Zsolt Dávid Szabó crashed out after contact with Petr Fulín. Although the Hungarian’s SEAT was badly damaged, Szabó was given the all-clear following a visit to the medical centre, as Fulín continued to the finish in fourth place.

Mladen Lalušić, who started on the reverse-grid pole, took fifth with Andreas Pfister sixth, newcomer Rudolf Pesovic seventh and Igor Stefanovski completing the scorers, one place ahead of Hungarian lady driver Anett György.

Fábio Mota joined Lalušić on the front row but dropped out of contention after early-race contact. A broken driveshaft on his Audi in Race 1 meant Plamen Kralev was a non-starter in Race 2.
