Jonathan Hoggard topped a close British Formula 4 qualifying session to take a double pole position at Silverstone.

Hoggard topped the times early in the session, his 56.957s putting him clear of the rest of the field. But as the session wore on most of the field continued to find improvements, and the Fortec driver’s rivals edged closer and closer to his benchmark.

Championship leader Kiren Jewiss came closest to toppling Hoggard, managing to get within 0.012s late in the session.

Before Jewiss could find the missing hundredth of a second, championship newcomer Christian Lester span, bringing out the red flags and ending the session a few minutes early. The Double R Racing driver would have to settle for second, but will start the first race of the weekend five positions ahead of title rival Ayrton Simmons, who qualified P7.

Arden duo Patrik Pasma and Jack Doohan complete the second row of the grid, with Paavo Tonteri and Jack Skelton fifth and sixth.

Tonteri’s second best time was good enough for third on the grid for the final race of the weekend, behind Hoggard and Jewiss who will once again make up the front row.

Dennis Hauger, Sebastian Priaulx, and Sebastian Alvarez completed the top 10 for the penultimate British Formula 4 qualifying of the season.
