F4 British Championship

Flying Fielding does JHR Developments Proud in Qualifying

1 Mins read

After a late red flag, F4 British Championship qualifying came down to two flying laps in the final few minutes. This allowed Sennan Fielding to take pole for race one as Max Fewtrell recorded race three pole position.

As qualifying got underway, James Pull was the first to lay down a marker. Half the field though, did not set a representative time within the first five minutes. It proved to be an early domination for the Carlin drivers as Devlin DeFrancesco briefly went top before Pull took the space back.

The session was soon brought to a premature halt as Alex Quinn and Zane Goddard stopped on track. It was later revealed that Rafa Martins was another reason for the stoppage as the cars streamed into the pits.

A green flag was briefly waved, though it appeared to be premature as a red was immediately waved again. Goddard had recovered to the pits, but had lost his front wing in the process.

As the session was properly restarted, Pull looked to defend his lead from Fewtrell and DeFrancesco. At the end of the first lap Fewtrell had taken provisional pole, though the race one grid came down to a final lap blast.

Fielding had been fourth before the stoppage, but proved his pace was genuine by going fastest and taking pole position with a 1m52.396. DeFrancesco improved to second overall with Pull putting up with third.

Surprisingly, a late lap from Jamie Caroline saw him leap up to fourth as TRS Arden‘s championship contender; Luis Leeds, managed fifth. Having shown pace in the first half of the session it was a poor sixth for Fewtrell. The biggest upset of the session turned out to be Petru Florescu, he failed to improve at the end, achieving eleventh.
