Lance Stroll has lost his pole positions for races two and three at Zandvoort after his Prema Powerteam car was found to contravene technical regulations after qualifying on Friday.

The Canadian driver had been untouchable during the qualifying session, but will start both races from the back of the field due to his suspension being against the rules, contravening article 10.3.3 of the FIA Formula 3 technical regulations.

Prema have decided not to appeal the decision to exclude him from qualifying, while Sergio Sette Câmara has suffered a similar fate.

Sette Câmara had qualified fourth for race two and second for race three, and would have inherited pole position with Stroll’s exclusion only to have his own times deleted as well due to an airbox infringement.

Motopark have also accepted the decision, meaning the Brazilian will join Stroll on the back row of the grid for the final two races of the weekend.

Callum Ilott will inherit the pole spot for race two as a result for van Amersfoort Racing, with Nick Cassidy of Prema Powerteam moving up to the front row, while Prema’s Maximilian Günther is now set to start race three from the front, with Cassidy again second.
