Zandvoort European F3: Rosenqvist takes two poles, Kvyat the other

Felix Rosenqvist, Mucke, Zandvoort European F3 2013

Felix Rosenqvist gave himself a glimmer of hope of snatching the Formula 3 European Championship title by taking two pole positions for this weekend's races at Zandvoort.

Rosenqvist will line up at the front for races two and three, but has to play third fiddle behind Daniil Kvyat and Alex Lynn for the first race.

GP3 title contender Kvyat, who is not registered for F3 points, topped the opening session in his Carlin Dallara-Volkswagen by a clear four tenths of a second, while a late effort from Lynn allowed the Englishman to join the Russian on the front row with his Prema Powerteam Dallara-Mercedes.

But on second-best times Rosenqvist, whose best two laps were just one hundredth apart, got the verdict for race two in his Mucke Motorsport Dallara-Mercedes from Kvyat and Lynn.

Rosenqvist then stayed a step ahead of the opposition in the second session, which set the grid for race three, turning the tables on Kvyat by four tenths at the circuit where he won July's Masters of F3.

In this session Jordan King, who is fourth on the grid for the first two races, went one better to edge out Lynn for third in his Carlin machine.

Prema's championship leader Raffaele Marciello ended up with a pair of fifths and a seventh, although had a time that would have put him fourth for race one deleted as it was set just as the red flag appeared due to a light accident for Lucas Wolf.

There was another crash right at the end of the session for Nicholas Latifi, and the Canadian did not take part in the second period.

Harry Tincknell joined Carlin team-mates Kvyat and King in the top six on the grid for all three races, with a fifth and two sixths.

Of the other Britons in the field, Tom Blomqvist took a best grid position of eighth, Jann Mardenborough 11th and Alexander Sims 12th.
