A combination of injuries and the clash with the British Formula 3 round at Spa has prompted several driver changes in GP3 Series field ahead of this weekend's round at the Hungaroring.
As expected, Manor's James Jakes has been forced to sit out the round after breaking his hand in a crash at Hockenheim last weekend, with the Briton set to be replaced by Adrien Tambay. Also missing is Jenzer's Simon Trummer, whose back injury following an accident in Germany has proven to be worse than initially thought, forcing the team to call up Spaniard Marco Barba instead.
Antonio Felix Da Costa will drive for Carlin in place of Lucas Foresti, who is racing at Spa, while Daniel Juncadella's similar commitments have left Tech 1 a driver short for this weekend.
The team had intended to run Arthur Pic, but it has already used its maximum of five different drivers for the season and needed the approval of the other teams in order for the Frenchman to race.
AUTOSPORT understands that this was not forthcoming, leaving the team facing being fined by the series for breaching the requirement to run all three of its cars at every round.
