“FIA F3: Rosenqvist double-pole; Kvyat rakes Race 1 top spot”

September 27, 2013

Felix Rosenqvist claimed a pair of pole positions for races two and three of this weekend’s FIA European F3 championship round at Zandvoort.

Carlin Motorsport rival Daniil Kvyat assumes the peak for tomorrow’s opening race with a quickest run of 1:30.653s – some four-tenths up on next fastest man Alex Lynn.

Rosenqvist led for much of the opening session as well, while Kvyat lingered behind; however a mid-session stunner by the Russian enabled Kvyat to grab the top by half-a-second.

A brief red flag to recover Lucas Wolf’s spun URD machine interrupted the session; however upon the restart, Rosenqvist could not improve, rendering him vulnerable to Alex Lynn, who would eventually lap one-tenth quicker than his Mucke rival.
Newly crowned British F3 champion Jordan King also made hay around the famous Dutch sand dunes, by placing his Volkswagen-powered Carlin on the second row, just alongside Rosenqvist.
Championship leader Raffaele Marciello ended the session in 5th place, just one-hundredth quicker than Harry Tincknell – the latter of whom made it three Carlin drivers in the top six.

Meanwhile, Rosenqvist took the top spot for race two, with the quickest ‘second-fastest time’. With Kvyat only managing one ultra clear lap during the twenty-minute session, the Mucke driver managed a tour over one-tenth quicker than Kvyat.
Lynn and King took 3rd and 4th respectively, as the top four for race two’s grid was identical for race one’s. Tincknell closed out the top five, followed Pipo Derani (6th) and Marciello (7th).
The opening session ended with yet another red flag, this time when Nicholas Latifi spun off when one of his tyres lost pressure.

Rosenqvist went quicker still in the final session, when he recorded a best of 1:30.242 to go more than four-tenths faster than Kvyat – the Russian scoring his third front row start of the weekend.
King broke into the top three for the first time, this time pipping Lynn by 0.034s, while Rosenqvist was a similar distance back in 5th. Tincknell ended the final session with another 6th spot, although he enjoyed an advantage of a couple of tenths over Brazilian peddler Derani.

Series new-boy and Formula Renault graduate Alfonso Celis qualified 24th (race one), 23rd (race two) and 18th (race three) – a solid effort by the Mexican.
