  • We had to be patient and wait until the end in these qualifications to know the poleman of the F3 at Silverstone. Noel León (VAR) thought he was on the right track with his lap in 1'45"475 which allowed him to place himself at the top of the timesheet before the rain appeared. We then thought the session was over but the drying of the track in the final minutes reshuffled the cards. And it was Luke Browning (Hitech GP), despite being in a bad position 5 minutes from time, who won the day.
  • Far from the count at the start of the game, the Englishman, leader of the championship since his victory in Austria last weekend, improved in the final moments to take his second consecutive pole position. With a lap of 1'44, the only one under the 992'1 mark, Luke Browning took the lead over the astonishing Max Esterson (Jenzer) whom he was ahead of by 45 thousandths.
  • Having been struggling for several weeks, Sami Meguetounif (Trident) may finally see the end of the tunnel. The only Frenchman entered in F3 this year set the 3rd fastest time, less than a tenth from pole position and can hope to achieve a good result in the race to get back on track. His teammate Leonardo Fornaroli, third in the championship, finished just behind him, with Laurens van Hoepen (ART Grand Prix) completing the Top 5.
  • Bad operation at Prema with Gabriele Mini and Dino Beganovic respectively 14th and 19th! The first city did not manage to improve while the second was able to come back but missed in the last turn of his last attempt not being able to go any higher. All the hopes of the Italian team rest on Arvid Lindblad, 11th.
  • Deprived of pole position, Noel León will still start at the head of the Sprint Race this Saturday (10:20 a.m.).
