Following on from his pace setting times in Friday practice, Kevin Magnussen secured pole position for both British Formula 3 feature races at Paul Ricard.

The Dane’s best of 2:00.426 offered a 0.235 advantage over Felipe Nasr’s quickest tour – a gap that closed to just over over one-and-a-half-tenths for the weekend’s third event.
Nasr initially proved to be the quickest on track, before being overhauled by Magnussen, although the Brazilian still managed a second place starting position for both races.

Indeed the field displayed a incredible amount of consistency during the session, with the top ten positions for both races proving to be identical.

Come the chequered flag, Carlin drivers possessed five of the top six spots, with Hitech’s Antonio Felix da Costa breaking the party by taking 3rd, with Carlos Huertas alongside.
Jack Harvey’s run of improvement continues with each meeting. The rookie pilot secured a third row position, just ahead of Rupert Svendsen-Cook (6th) and Hitech’s Pietro Fantin (7th).

William Buller placed the highest Mercedes starter, qualifying his Fortec Motorsport machine in 8th. The Northern Irishman seized the place ahead of Jazeman Jaafar (9th, Carlin) and championship challenger Lucas Foresti (10th, Fortec).
Bart Hylkema’s first qualifying session saw the Dutch pilot qualify his T-Sport entry 12th (race 1) and 13th (race 3), respectively finishing 1.6 and 1.7 seconds shy of the top spot.
