Knockhill qual 1: Piccione stuns rivals

Nelson Angelo Piquet's effort, which put him second on the grid, was just as impressive given that the young Brazilian had not even seen the Scottish circuit until testing yesterday.

Carlin's Ronnie Bremer rounded out the top six ahead of a disappointed championship leader Alan van der Merwe. The South African was fastest in yesterday's testing session and has clearly lost ground to his rivals this morning.

Menu Motorsport's Rob Austin was eighth fastest ahead of Alan Docking Racing's Will Davison and Fairuz Fauzy.
