RD11 QUALIFYING: Fifth Pole of Season for Asmer

 

Marko Asmer (#7 Hitech Racing) posted the fastest time the red flag hit 30-minute qualifying session for Round 11 of the 2007 Lloyds TSB Insurance British F3 International Series, 0.061 seconds ahead of Finland's Atte Mustonen (#26 Raikkonen Robertson Racing).  Cheng Cong Fu (#39 Performance Racing) claimed the National Class pole and will start the race six places ahead of championship rival Sergio Perez (#31 T Sport).

Jonathan Kennard (#2 Raikkonen Robertson Racing) set the early pace with a 1m18.986s, just 0.1 seconds ahead of Maro Engel (#23 Carlin Motorsport) and Niall Breen (#21 Carlin Motorsport).  Kennard improved but was passed by his Double R teammate Stephen Jelley (#1 Raikkonen Robertson Racing) and Sam Bird (#3 Carlin Motorsport) at the halfway point of the session. 

At this point the red flags came out as three cars belonging to Alberto Valerio, Alex Waters and Mario Moraes were beached at various points around the circuit.  After the cars were recovered the clock was reset for 15-minutes and the session was green flagged.

Championship leader Marko Asmer had been unable to get a clear lap before the red flags came out and was languishing towards the back of the grid.  However he got a good run and moved up to 10th with 10 minutes of the session remaining and on the next lap put in a 1m17.891 lap to claim the top spot.  Atte Mustonen was also showing his pace, posting a time just six hundredths adrift of the pole time, with Stephen Jelley and Sam Bird just behind.  The second red flag of the session was displayed when Johnny Cecotto Jnr went off at Hawthorns in a heavy impact with the barriers.  The Venezuelan was OK but his car was a bit of a mess.

The chequered flag was displayed and the Marko Asmer had his fifth pole of the season.
