Anthoine’s summer will be hot

Anthoine Hubert - Chammiponnat GP3 Series - 2017 - Autriche

Three meetings in July

Anthoine Hubert is preparing his three weekend races in July. The first round will take place the next weekend on the Red Bull Ring track, a track the young Frenchman knew very well for having driven on it in Formula 3 last season. “It’s a track which may sound easy with sequences of 90° turns and straight lines. But it’s precisely with this kind of configuration that we can win or lose a lot of time at the beginning or the end of turns”, warns Anthoine.

A preparation « à la Bourguignonne »

A month ago, Anthoine left the Hungaroring with a half-done tastefully throughout the last private trial of the season. The tyre exploitation on a qualifying quick lap wasn’t ideal. In an attempt to uncover the mysteries of the Pirelli’s gum he discovered this year, Anthoine went in Bourgogne, in the den of his team, ART Grand Prix. “With my engineer and the technical director of the team, we studied all the data of the Barcelona tracks and of the Hungaroring trials. The good news is that we found the problem”, Anthoine reassures, “But to find it isn’t enough, we now have to apply this good resolution since the Red Bull Ring free trials to start out on the right foot in Austria”.

On the hill above Spielberg, Anthoine set a goal to join the first lines of the timesheet again. “And to score big points for me and my team. It’s important to come back to Austria with a good point capital and to be on a good dynamic for this sequence of three weekends of race!”.
