Luciano Bacheta has continued his flying start to the FIA Formula Two Championship season by scoring pole position in qualifying for the first of the two Portimao races.

The Brit, who won both races at the season opener at Silverstone two weeks' ago, moved ahead of the rest two-thirds of a way through the session before sitting the remainder out.

German Markus Pommer, who like Bacheta had topped one of Friday's practice sessions, came close to stealing first place, but ultimately fell short by just 0.021 seconds.

Teenager Matheo Tuscher, who sensationally claimed pole at Silverstone, was third quickest, edging out former GP2 racer Kevin Mirocha by just four thousandths of a second.

Brit Daniel McKenzie set the early pace, but slipped to fifth place by the flag, and will share the third row of the grid with Christopher Zanella. Alex Fontana, who scored a double podium at Silverstone, was seventh, with Chinese driver David Zhu continuing the promising start to his campaign with eighth on the grid. Mihai Marinescu took a lower-than-expected ninth, with Dino Zamparelli completing the top ten.
