Zak O’Sullivan took his fourth win of the 2023 Formula 3 season after dominating the Feature Race in Budapest.

Taking the start from pole position, O’Sullivan chopped across the track to cover off PREMA Racing team-mate Dino Beganovic.

O’Sullivan successfully held onto the lead on the opening lap and from there was unchallenged, slowly increasing the gap across the 19 laps of racing.

It was the Williams junior driver’s first points score since the Feature Race at the Red Bull Ring – an event where he also took victory.

Although he was unable to keep up with his team-mate, Beganovic wasn’t troubled in second place to secure another 18 points in the standings.

Taking the final spot on the podium was Franco Colapinto, who made an overtake on Leonardo Fornaroli midway through the race for the final spot on the rostrum.

One year on from his debut in the FIA F3 championship, Oliver Goethe was fourth ahead of the third PREMA Racing car of Paul Aron.

Aron came under pressure late on from Pepe Marti, who progressed strongly throughout the race, climbing from P13 on the grid to sixth at the chequered flag.

Championship leader Gabriel Bortoleto ensured that he still holds a sizeable lead at the head of the standings, securing his 13th point-scoring result in a row.

Jonny Edgar was eighth, while Fornaroli crossed the line in ninth place after descending down the order in the closing stages.

Mari Boya for MP Motorsport picked up the final point on offer.

F3 will return next weekend at Spa-Francorchamps, where Bortoleto will have his first chance to seal the 2023 title.
