Felix Rosenqvist collected his seventeenth pole position of his championship winning FIA European Formula 3 Championship season after dominating qualifying for race one at Hockenheim.
Rosenqvist led a Prema Powerteam 1-2-3-4 in qualifying, but the Swedish driver was in a league of his own as his best time of 1m31.771s was 0.348s faster than second placed Maximilian Günther, who impressed on his first appearance for the team having joined the Italian team this week in place of Nick Cassidy.
Lance Stroll and Jake Dennis completed the Prema domination on row two, with Alexander Sims the best of the rest in fifth for Hitech GP, the Briton continuing to show good pace in Germany as the team put in more miles ahead of their scheduled full-time entry in 2016.
Mikkel Jensen ended the session in sixth for Mücke Motorsport, just 0.005s clear of Charles Leclerc of Van Amersfoort Racing, while Markus Pommer will start eight for Motopark.
Antonio Giovinazzi of Jagonya Ayam with Carlin and Alexander Albon of Signature complete the top ten.
Debutants Tanart Sathienthirakul and Marvin Dienst were twenty-ninth and thirty-second respectively for Motopark and Artline Engineering respectively, both ahead of Red Bull-backed Carlin driver Callum Ilott, who stopped on track with suspension damage before being able to set a competitive lap time.
