Spielberg European F3: Red Bull star Daniil Kvyat sweeps poles

Daniil Kvyat, Carlin, Spielberg European Formula 3 2013Red Bull junior driver Daniil Kvyat secured pole position for all three Formula 3 European Championship races at Spielberg with a stunning performance in qualifying.

The Russian teenager topped both wet sessions in his Carlin Dallara-Volkswagen to take pole for races one and three, while his second-best lap of Q1 ensured he will also start race two from the front of the grid.

The battle for pole in Q1 was as tight as ever with category rookie Kvyat - who is not registered as a points-scoring driver this year due to his late series entry - and Felix Rosenqvist swung back and forth.

Mucke driver Rosenqvist's 1m43.865s knocked Kvyat off the top spot by two tenths of a second with three minutes to go, but shortly afterwards Kvyat responded with a 1m43.825s lap - just four hundredths quicker.

Lucas Wolf delivered easily the best qualifying performance of his F3 career to date. The URD driver was third fastest in Q1, but set a Q2 time good enough for a front-row spot in the later race - ahead of Rosenqvist.

Eddie Cheever was surprisingly the best of the Prema drivers in Q1 as he took fourth spot on the race-one grid and added to it with a sixth and a ninth spot for the other races.

Jordan King and Nicholas Latifi will start fifth and sixth for Carlin in race one, the pair improving to third and fifth for Sunday's race.

The big disappointment of the afternoon was championship leader Raffaele Marciello, who was only fast enough for 13th and 16th spots for Saturday's races.

The Italian rescued a front-row spot for race three, but was almost half a second off Kvyat's pole time.

His British Prema team-mate Alex Lynn fared even worse and will start 17th, 15th and 21st.
