F3 Masters: Felix Rosenqvist fastest in Friday practice

The 2011 Masters winner set the fastest time over the two free practice sessions on Friday aboard his Mercedes-engined Mucke Dallara F312.

His opening session time of 1m31.989s was more than a tenth up on Carlin driver Jordan King's second-fastest time of the day, which was also set in the morning.

Lucas Auer topped the times in the slower, afternoon session in his Prema Dallara-Mercedes on a 1m32.157s, which stood as the third fastest time of the day.

Team-mate Alex Lynn was second fastest, nearly three tenths behind, with Rosenqvist third another three tenths back.
