FIA European F3 rookie Charles Leclerc assumed pole position for races 2 and 3 of the opening round of the season when the efforts of original top man, Felix Rosenqvist, were thrown out.

Rosenqvist, who had for a brief period, replicated his stellar Q1 efforts, was removed from the results when it was discovered that the dimensions of his Prema Powerteam machine did not conform to the technical regulations.

Instead Leclerc will lead an all-rookie front row for race two, with the van Amersfoort man just heading Carlin racer George Russell, while Antonio Giovinazzi (Jagonya Ayam Carlin) and Alexander Albon (Signature) secured the second row.
The same four men will take up the front two rows for race three, albeit in a slightly different order, as Giovinazzi heads Russell for the weekend closer.

Positions for rows three and four also contain the same four protagonists, with 5th-8th in both events lining up as Brandon Maïsano, Jake Dennis, Lance Stroll and Gustav Menezes.

As with the other sessions so far this weekend, traffic proved an issue, as 35 entries vied for free space on a full track.
