We are on the countdown now to the Master Class Round of 14 and it's just minutes to go...
ROUND OF 14 HEAD TO HEADS:
BRAGEOT V HALL
PODLUNSEK V SONKA
IVANOFF V GOULIAN
BOLTON V KOPFSTEIN
LE VOT V CHAMBLISS
DOLDERER V MUROYA
VELARDE V MCLEOD
It's an electrifying atmosphere here next to the Danube, with more than 75,000 fans having joined us over the weekend for round 4 of the 2017 Red Bull Air Race World Championship!
Pete McLeod took yesterday's Qualifying win with a standout performance and a blistering 59.508 time – smashing the track record and charging ahead of Japan's Yoshi Muroya, hot off two back to back wins
One of the biggest upsets was from defending World Champion, Matthias Dolderer, who over G'd and will face off against Muroya
While one of them could easily take the Fastest Loser place, there are no guarantees in this sport... so we'll have to wait and see how it all unfolds
It's the first stop in Europe and the halfway point of the season, with a trio of pilots really starting to break away at the top – Sonka, Muroya and Dolderer
But there are plenty of others chasing them... Matt Hall is getting back to form with his new Edge 540, Petr Kopfstein is really making great headway and both Goulian and Velarde are on the up...
It's a definite edge-of-the-seat season and Budapest gives us one of the most demanding tracks of the season – known as 'The Beast' due to the 24 gate configuration and unique start under the Chain Bridge
And Brageot is first to fly today and he will have his work cut out trying to beat Matt Hall in this knockout round...
It's a very respectable run and a big improvement for Brageot!
Well done Mika! That's a 1:01.970 and Hall won't have expected that!
Hall enters the track at 198.7kts and this needs to be clean and controlled – no room for any error if the Australian wants to ensure a spot in the Round of 8
And it's green on the first split! This is bad news for Brageot...
It's green again and it's looking promising... but there's the red and it's all over...
Hall will have to settle for 1:02.336, +0.366 behind Brageot
That's a first for Brageot and Team Breitling will need to stay focused now as they prepare for the Round of 8
NEWS UPDATE: Podlunsek will not fly. He's recorded a DNS due to technical reasons. Sonka will still fly his Round of 14 run in order to record a time for the Round of 8 match ups
