Marvin Kirchhöfer took pole position for the Gp3 Series finale at Abu Dhabi, crowning Alex Lynn as series champion in the process.

Championship contender Dean Stoneman needed to score every available point this weekend to keep the title battle alive; however the when Briton could do no better than 2nd on the grid, he lost the four points offered to the top qualifier.

With a best of 1:55.163, Kirchhöfer held the pole for much of the latter part of the session, with a series of yellow flags denying several drivers runs for the top spot.

If nothing else, Kirchhöfer’s advantage over the field is somewhat disingenuous. The German racer holds a gap of 0.471s over Stoneman, but it was a lap that was unchallenged due to the persistent yellow sectors.

Behind the leading pair, Carlin secured the second row, as Emil Bernstorff grabbed 3rd ahead of new champion Alex Lynn. Dino Zamparelli and Jimmy Eriksson locked out the third row of the grid.
