Kiwi driver Mitch Evans has finished fifth in the GP2 sprint race at the latest round in Hungary.

The Kiwi lies seventh in the overall standings after a disappointing feature race on Sunday. Evans struggled with the set-up of his car and qualified outside the top 10 but managed to just sneak in for a 10th place finish.

He had slightly more success on Monday morning, holding down a top five spot throughout the race.

Sergey Sirotkin won the sprint race while Pierre Gasly leads the overall standings.
