Hockenheim European F3: Verstappen gets poles, Blomqvist demoted

Max Verstappen, Van Amersfoort, Hockenheim European F3 2014

Max Verstappen will start from pole position for races two and three of the Hockenheim European Formula 3 event after an engine penalty for Tom Blomqvist.

While it was Carlin driver Blomqvist that set the two fastest times of the session, the Briton changed engines beforehand, meaning he receives a 10-place grid penalty for the next three races - two at Hockenheim, and the first in Pau.

As a result, Verstappen inherited a pair of pole positions for Sunday's two races in Germany.

Prema's Esteban Ocon finished hot on Van Amersfoort driver Verstappen's heels to clinch second for race two, while Antonio Giovinazzi becomes Carlin's lead runner in third after Blomqvist's demotion.

Ed Jones was fourth, Antonio Fuoco fifth, while Felix Roseqnvist was sixth, the best of the Mucke cars and one place ahead of his team-mate, race one winner Lucas Auer.

Jordan King, who was third in race one, could manage just 19th on the grid.

The top three remain the same for the race three grid, with Rosenqvist fourth, Fuoco fifth, Jones sixth and Auer seventh. King will again start from 19th.
