RD 8 Qualifying: Red Bull Driver Alguersuari Charges to Pole
Jaime Alguersuari claimed his third pole of the season as he charged through the standing water at Rockingham to finish the session 0.318 seconds ahead of Sebastian Hohenthal and 0.373 ahead of Oliver Turvey. Andy Meyrick made it eight National Class pole positions in eight attempts with a time that was good enough for 5th overall, eight places ahead of second placed Steven Guerrero.
Jaime Alguersuari said: "It was very much about having a free lap today, and being able to set a good time on your own. That's what I was aiming for and pushed really hard when I got some space on track. I think I drove well and the car was very well set up. The conditions were very difficult, there was standing water on a lot of the corners, so I had to change my line around parts of the track. It was difficult but I'm very pleased."
