Alex Palou’s remarkable first weekend in World Series Formula V8 3.5 continued as the young Spaniard grabbed his second pole position at the Nurburgring on Saturday.

Having already taken top spot in qualifying for race one on Friday, the Teo Martin Motorsport driver did the double by setting a best time of 1:40.840s, which was 0.345 seconds clear of the field.

Joining Palou on the front row will be Diego Menchaca, with the Fortec Motorsports driver having one of his best displays of the season so far. The Mexican set a best time of 1:41.185s to deny Matevos Isaakyan of SMP Racing by AVF a front row start by 0.072 seconds.

Roy Nissany jumped up to fourth in the closing moments of the session for RP Motorsport, edging out Egor Orudzhev in the second of the SMP Racing by AVF entries, while Pietro Fittipaldi will be disappointed to end up sixth on the grid, with the result meaning for the first time in 2017, the Lotus driver will not start at least one of the races in the weekend from the front of the field.

Alfonso Celis Jr will start seventh in the second Fortec Motorsports entry ahead of RP Motorsport’s Yu Kanamaru, while Rene Binder of Lotus and Konstantin Tereschenko of Teo Martin Motorsport will share row five, ahead of Damiano Fioravanti and Giuseppe Cipriani.
