Second qualifying session defined the grid positions for two races. The best lap time is for Race 1 and the second best lap time of each driver is for Race 3. Felix Rosenqvist set the best lap time of the day (1.29.713) and gets the pole for Race 2, but his second best lap wasn’t so good so he gets P3 in Race 3.

Giovinazzi was only 0.009 seconds slower than Rosenqvist and will be sharing the first row in Race 2. Behind them at the start of Race 2 will be Pommer, Dennis, Lance Stroll (Prema Powerteam) and Leclerc.

Giovinazzi’s second best time was good enough for one more pole-position in Race 3. Markus Pommer was fast again and will start from 2nd place. Rosenqvist will share the second row with Jake Dennis and third row is reserved for Lance Stroll and Sergio Sette Camara (Motopark).

34 drivers took place in the qualifying. The first race is scheduled for 10.35 tomorrow, second race at 15.40 the same day and third race at 10.30 on Sunday.
