“Blomqvist takes first FIA F3 pole of the season”

April 18, 2014

Jagonya Ayam with Carlin racer Tom Blomqvist secured the first FIA European Formula 3 pole position of the season this afternoon.

The “Son of Stig” set a quickest tour of 1:51.327s to pip Lotus junior Esteban Ocon (Prema Powerteam) by 0.002s to assume pole position at a circuit where track position is key.

Rookies Max Verstappen (Van Amersfoort Racing) and Antonio Fuoco (Prema Powerteam) filled out the second row of the grid.

A comfortable and happy Felix Serralles made an excellent debut with the Team West-Tec squad, to register 5th spot, while Jordan King put his Carlin entry alongside in 6th spot.

A fantastic effort by Ed Jones (Carlin) gave the F3 Open champion a 7th place start for tomorrow’s race, ahead of Prema Powerteam pairing Nicholas Latifi (8th) and Dennis van de Laar.

Mucke’s Lucas Auer filled out the top ten, some four places ahead of his teammate and title favourite Felix Rosenqvist.
