Hamilton Secures Pau Pole

ASM driver Lewis Hamilton has secured pole position for Sunday's F3 Euroseries race at Pau

Hamilton Secures Pau Pole

Having already dominated free practice, the Brit secured a time more than one-tenth of a second quicker than Loic Duval.

However, Hamilton's ASM teammate Adrian Sutil will line-up alongside him on the front row for Round Four, thanks to Pau's qualifying format.

In order to allow drivers a session with less traffic, drivers were split into two, 20-minute sessions.

The drivers in Hamilton's 'faster' session will line up on the odd-numbered side of the grid, and drivers in Sutil's 'slower' session lining up on the even-numbered side.

Qualification for tomorrow's Round Three takes place tomorrow morning.
