Despite frequent shower night, it is on track to 95% drier than rushes the first race of the Hungarian weekend. Starting from pole position, Yvan Muller retains its right in front of Lopez. But, Loeb faced with a wonderful trip of two Honda Monteiro and Tarquini, before going too wide in the first turn and yield to Bennani and Michelisz .
On estimated to give only very few overtaking chance Hungaroring, Loeb closes walking very fast frontrunners , still led by Muller and Lopez to four Honda Civic. Progressively, Muller built his lead to bring it to 2 seconds Lopez at the end of the sixth round, as Argentina that distances on Monteiro.
Snuggled in the exhausts Michelisz, local step supported by an inspiring fervour in the stands, Loeb fails to shift to attempt an attack. With its ballast of 60 kg and a very technical track, the C -Elysée does not show the same superiority to the recovery than in the two previous rounds in Marrakech and Paul Ricard.
Aside from the magnificent struggle between Valente and Huff, who finally turned in favour of the French for the dot gain of the tenth, the first race ends in procession taking into account different factors already declared. It will probably be quite different for Race 2 with reverse grid.
