British teenager Callum Ilott recovered superbly from a free practice crash to take a provisional front row grid slot in Macau on Thursday.

The Red Bull-backed Carlin driver made contact with one of the unforgiving walls during practice, but a lap of 2m12.663s during the forty-minute qualifying session, a time that was only bettered by defending Macau Grand Prix winner Felix Rosenqvist.

“It was a good comeback after this morning’s mistake in free practice,” insisted Ilott. “I made sure to start off slow and build on my speed so that the times continued to fall.

“It was a really great effort by the team and I’m extremely pleased that we were able to put in that lap to take the provisional front row start. Obviously tomorrow is another day but this is a great way to start the weekend.”

Final qualifying takes place on Friday.
