Next up, its France's Melanie Astles
Astles is through the Start Gate at 179kts... she's already got a lead on berger in the first split, with a 0.5s advantage.
Hungary's Daniel Genevey will be next into the track. He's managed two 5th place finishes and one 6th place in his FP sessions today. The Hungarian needs to build some confidence in front of his home crowd today, to give him a shot at the podium tomorrow...
And Genevey is into the track...
Just a short break now as Genevey heads back to the airport, and the next three Challengers get prepped in the Challenger raceplanes.
Up next: it's Poland's Luke Czepiela, who has achieved a best result of 4th in FP1.
China's Kenny Chiang is up next. Chiang has enjoyed a 2nd place finish in FP1, but hasn't been able to recreate that result in his remaining FP sessions... let's see what he's got up his sleeve today...
Coming up at 16:00 local time/14:00 UTC -
Master Class Qualifying

Next up, it's Chile's Cristian Bolton...
Kopfstein up next... the Czech pilot has had some great results in Free Practice, with a 1st and 2nd place finish
Kopfstein is through the Start Gate with a comfortable pace of 199kts... he's showing green on the splits and ahead of Bolton's race and gaining speed as he heads through Gates 11 and 12... 0.363s faster than Bolton in the second split and Kopfstein looking smooth and confident. He's managing the conditions really well and looking comfortable out there... he's found some great pace in the second half of the racetrack and he's through cleanly and clocks in at 57.872... a magnificent time!
Britain's Ben Murphy next up.
This is Mruphy's debut in Qualifying in the Budapest racetrack... it's an unknown for Murphy but already we're seeing issues as he gets +1s for insufficient smoke. The splits are red, and Murphy, although looking steady and comfortable, is lagging behind and taking quite a conservative run here. 1:01.060 for the first run and Di Matteo commenting on the lack of smoke... is it a technical issue or a pilot error from Murphy?
