  • Cocorico at Silverstone where France was brilliantly represented thanks to Isack Hadjar (Campos) and Victor Martins (ART Grand Prix). It is above all the first city which made people talk about it by winning its first pole position in Formula 2.
  • A few moments after his participation in Free Practice 1 of the F1 with Red Bull, the Parisian chained by making everyone agree on the English tarmac. Not bothered by the sudden change of environment while some of his counterparts may have been in the past, Isack Hadjar had no rival. His lap in 1'39"368 gave him more than two tenths ahead of the rest of the peloton. This shows the level at which the protégé of the Austrian team has been evolving in recent weeks.

  • A first pole position in Formula 2 coupled with an excellent operation with a view to the championship. Indeed, the leader Paul Aron (Hitech GP) missed his last run. Having spun at the exit of the first turn, the Estonian lit his tires and gradually fell in the standings until he was expelled from the Top 10. Only positive things for Isack Hadjar since the former member of the team Mercedes will start 12th in both races this weekend.
  • For his part, Victor Martins seems to be regaining color. In a difficult situation this year, the ART Grand Prix driver signed his best performance in qualifying with the 2nd fastest time for a 100% tricolor front row! Dennis Hauger (MP Motorsport) completed the Top 3 ahead of his teammate Franco Colapinto and Ollie Bearman (Prema).
  • Andrea Kimi Antonelli (Prema) inherited “pole position” in the Sprint Race this Saturday (14:15 p.m.)
