1 Mins read

Felix Rosenqvist and Antonio Giovinazzi shared the pole positions for races two and three after the second European Formula 3 qualifying session at Zandvoort on Friday.

Prema Powerteam driver Rosenqvist set the pace for race two, with his best time of 1m29.713s just 0.009s clear of Jagonya Ayam with Carlin driver Giovinazzi, with the top two again the class of the field.

Markus Pommer will start race two from third on the grid for Motopark, but was more than half a second shy of the time of Rosenqvist, while fourth placed Jake Dennis was over seventh tenths back from his team-mate.

Lance Stroll continued his strong performance this weekend to date with fifth in a third Prema Powerteam entry, with Championship leader Charles Leclerc sixth for Van Amersfoort Racing.

Lotus Junior Team driver Alexander Albon was seventh fastest for Signature ahead of George Russell of Carlin, with Motopark’s Sergio Sette Camara ninth ahead of Maximilian Günther of Mücke Motorsport.

For race three, for which the grid is set by a driver’s second quickest lap in the session, Giovinazzi was the pace setter this time, with Rosenqvist this time dropping to third on the grid behind Pommer, who will start on the front row for the first time this season.

Dennis was fourth again ahead of Stroll, while Sette Camara qualified sixth ahead of Russell, Albon, Ryan Tveter of Jagonya Ayam with Carlin and Leclerc.
