Citroën falls on a tough rival!
After Lopez and Muller scored a double in the first heat, the C-Elysées were beaten in the second one by national Hungarian star Norbert Michelisz.
Lopez opens up a gap
Thanks to a stunning start from third place in the first heat, the Argentinean scored his third win of the season increasing his lead over his team-mates and rivals in the championship even further.
Pole for Muller
The Alsatian put an end to Lopez’s domination in qualifying. Unfortunately, he made an average start in the first race, which condemned him to second place as overtaking on the tight Hungaroring is well nigh impossible.
A top-3 with no Citroëns!
For the first time in ages there were no Citroëns in the top 3 in race 2 won by Norbert Michelisz (Honda Civic Zengo) from the Chevrolet Cruzes driven by Coronel and Valente.
Yves Matton (Citroën Racing Director):
“We knew it was going to be a difficult weekend as we had to carry 60 kg ballast on the twistiest circuit of the season. Overall, we’re satisfied with this weekend and we’re already looking ahead to the Nürburgring, which will be one of the highlights of the championship!”
Next round: Nurburgring, Germany (15-17 May)
