Formula Renault 3.5

Kevin Magnussen (DAMS) grabbed his fourth consecutive Formula Renault 3.5 Series pole at Spa-Francorchamps on Sunday morning and will head the grid for this afternoon’s race from Nico Müller (International Draco Racing) and Stoffel Vandoorne (Fortec Motorsports).

Kevin Magnussen picked up where he left off on Saturday, dominating the 26-driver field in the first part of the 30-minute session, held beneath sunny skies.

Though the lead swapped hands after the round of tyre changes, the Dane came out on top when he lapped in a time of 1:58.428 three minutes from the end, securing him his sixth pole in the class. Lining up next to him on the front row will be Nico Müller, while Stoffel Vandoorne (Fortec Motorsports), Nigel Melker (Tech 1 Racing) and Will Stevens (P1 by Strakka Racing) completed the top five.

A delighted Kevin Magnussen had this to say afterwards: “The car is really competitive this weekend and I’d like to thank the team for that. Obviously you’re looking to win when you start on pole but I’m after championship points more than anything else. There are so many really talented drivers around that there’s no such thing as an easy race.”

The second race of the weekend starts at 14:50.
