Silverstone GP3: Yelloly sets practice pace as Stoneman crashes

Nick Yelloly topped the practice times at Silverstone on Friday evening, leading a British 1-2-4-5 on home turf

Status GP driver Yelloly set a 1m47.504s on his final flying lap, which followed a red flag for another Briton, Dean Stoneman, crashing heavily into the tyrewall at Stowe. Stoneman was unhurt.

Yelloly finished 0.294s ahead of ART's Dino Zamparelli, who topped the times for much of the session. Marvin Kirchhofer broke up the British dominance of the session, going third fastest in his ART machine.

Emil Bernstorff was fourth quickest for Carlin, ahead of Arden's Jann Mardenborough. Points leader Alex Lynn was a lowly 11th.
