Formula Renault 3.5

On a track that was initially wet but bathed in some welcome sunshine, Kevin Magnussen (DAMS) grabbed pole for race one of the weekend at Motorland Aragon, with Sergey Sirotkin (ISR) and Antonio Felix da Costa (Arden Caterham) taking the next two places on the grid behind him.

With all the drivers opting to keep their wet tyres under wraps until the end of the session, it was not until the closing minutes that the battle for pole really warmed up.

It was won by Kevin Magnussen, who will head the grid from Sergey Sirotkin (ISR), Antonio Felix da Costa (Arden Caterham), Christopher Zanella (ISR), Marco Sorensen (Lotus), Arthur Pic (AV Formula) and Norman Nato (DAMS).

Meanwhile, Formula Renault 3.5 Series points leader Stoffel Vandoorne had to be content with ninth position.

“It was a good qualifying session but it wasn’t easy in these conditions,” commented Kevin Magnussen afterwards. “Getting the tyre pressure right was no simple task, but I’m happy with the job we’ve done. The next step for us now is the race.”

Saturday’s race starts at 14:30 and will be shown live on Eurosport.
