Williams Ingram takes a fantastic pole position for the first race of the season in the dying seconds of the session from Red Bull’s Johnny Kingshark. Alfie Widger led for most of the session, and many were tipping him to take pole, however, both Johnny Kingshark and William Ingram were both able to improve in the final part. Kingshark particularly surprised, managing to improve upon his Q2 time by a massive 1.2 seconds!
The two Lotus drivers, Bradley Downton and Jamie Franklin lined up behind them in limbo, a few tenths off of the top 3, and 2 tenths from the second Red Bull driver, who was unable to extract the same from his car, finishing 7 tenths from Kingshark.
The Ferrari drivers, Bomeny and and Mathershaw were close once again, only separated by one thousandth of a second by the end. Sauber took the remaining slots, but were still 4 tenths behind the Ferraris, and 1.4 seconds from pole position.
