American Logan Sargeant claimed his first FIA Formula 3 pole position at the British Grand Prix at Silverstone as he edged out Liam Lawson.
The sophomore year driver is currently second in the championship with two podiums to his name since his switch from Carlin to PREMA in the off-season.
Pole position solidifies his grasp on second spot as the four points he gains for pole takes him closer to championship leader and teammate Oscar Piastri who qualified third.
Lawson’s Hitech GP teammate Max Fewtrell had his best qualifying by far on home soil in fourth ahead of the third PREMA of Frederik Vesti who didn’t get a second push lap at the end of the session with poor timing from the team.
Sebastián Fernández was the best placed of the ART’s in sixth with two-time race winner Théo Pourchaire a disappointing twelfth.
Jake Hughes was another Brit who enjoyed being at his home race qualifying seventh ahead of Lirim Zendeli, Aleksandr Smolyar and Clément Novalak who also races under a British license despite his French heritage.
Alex Peroni had set a good lap which would have seen him comfortably in the top ten but the time was later deleted for track limits meaning he qualified eighteenth, behind one of his Campos teammates for the first time this season as Sophia Floersch was a good sixteenth.
