Here comes Velarde! It's under the bridge and through the Start Gate
Will be be able to step up to the podium here in Hungary?
This is a great run from Velarde and he can be happy with a clean and controlled flight in this round... it's a 1:02.484 – not enough to nudge Hall from the Fastest Loser spot, so his only hope now is for McLeod to push too hard...
Last run of the Round of 14 and it's Canada's McLeod now...
Through the Start Gate at 196kts and moving with absolute confidence...
First split time is 0.5s ahead of Velarde! This is another blistering time from McLeod!
He's green again and gaining at every split time... almost through... and no! It's under review!
This is taking a while... it must be close... but he gets the OK from the Race Director and it' s 1:01.033 and he's through!
McLeod: "I just tried not to get ahead of myself and squeeze to hard on the turns. I know I've got the speed out there and I just need to behave. We're using every tool available to us."
QUICK RESULT FROM MASTER CLASS ROUND OF 14:
HALL (fastest loser)
Stay tuned! The Round of 8 is coming up in 60 minutes and we'll have full coverage here!
