Piquet dominates in Hungary

Nelson Piquet Jr had a perfect weekend in Hungary winning both GP2 races and picking up points for pole position and two fastest laps. Championship leader Lewis Hamilton had a tough time after failing to set a time in qualifying. He drove through the field on Saturday to finish 10th, despite a drive-through penalty for speeding in the pitlane and then on Sunday went from 10th to second. As a result Hamilton now has 87 points while Piquet now has 76 points. Hamilton's ART team mate Alexandre Premat has 56 points but is now under threat from Timo Glock who has had a strong series of racing since joining iSport.

There are four races left in the championship with two in Istanbul and two at Monza.
