On Friday, Logan Sargeant (R-ace GP) posted the best time in the Formula Renault Eurocup collective tests at the Hungaroring. With a lap of 1:40.828s in the morning, the American topped the time sheet ahead of Lorenzo Colombo (JD Motorsport) and Christian Lundgaard (MP Motorsport).



 In the afternoon, the leader in the general clasification, Yifei Ye (Josef Kaufmann Racing) was quickest while not beating the effort of Logan Sargeant.



On Thursday, the Formula Renault Eurocup field returned to action with four hours of private testing to find their marks on the daunting Hungarian track.



A newcomer to this circuit, Renault Sport Academy driver Christian Lundgaard set the opening benchmark time of the weekend in 1:40.941s ahead of another rookie Oscar Piastri (Arden Motorsport). Yifei Ye was third fastest ahead of Max Fewtrell (R-ace GP) and Charles Milesi (R-ace GP).





Private tests Three rookies ahead of the pack



On Friday morning, the first session of the collective tests was hotly contested with no less than eight drivers swapping best time in the opening 20 minutes. While Oscar Piastri rose to the top, the full course yellow caused by Christian Muñoz (AVF by Adrián Vallés) preceded a final ten-minute sprint.



Victor Martins (R-ace GP) was the first to take over the top spot, but he was immediately dislodged by Logan Sargeant and Yifei Ye. Logan Sargeant answered back with a lap of 1:40.828s to end the session P1 ahead of Lorenzo Colombo, Christian Lundgaard, Max Fewtrell, Frank Bird (Tech 1 Racing) and Yifei Ye, with just 0.16s covering the top six.





Collective tests 1 Yifei Ye quick in session 2




In the afternoon, the beginning of the second session was just as indecisive. At the mid-way point, Christian Lundgaard moved to the top of the time chart before going on to improve on each lap by a few hundredths of a second.



The order changed with six minutes remaining under the impetus of the four R-ace GP drivers. Lorenzo Colombo and Yifei Ye then followed suit. Despite the efforts of Victor Martins, Yifei Ye was fastest with a lap of 1:41.240s ahead of the Frenchman and Charles Milesi. Lorenzo Colombo and Oscar Piastri completed the top five.



On Saturday, the first qualifying session will be held at 10:40 with race 1, scheduled to start at 16:15.
