Beitske Visser took her strong form from France – where she scored her first W Series pole position – into Friday morning’s practice in Hungary, leading the way by two tenths of a second from Sarah Moore. Jamie Chadwick was a further four tenths adrift in third, despite completing fewer laps (nine) than any driver due to a suspected clutch issue.
Emma Kimiläinen spun at Turn 1 in the closing stages but still finished the session in fourth. Nerea Marti was fifth and Jessica Hawkins sixth, although the latter was given a five-minute time penalty midway through the 30-minute session for exceeding track limits, something several drivers were warned about.
The top 12 were separated by less than a second, and there were only three and a half tenths between Jamie in third and Abbie Eaton in 12th.
