Formula Renault 2.0

This morning the Group B drivers were the first out for the weekend’s second qualifying session.

Stoffel Vandoorne (Joseph Kaufmann Racing) and Daniil Kvyat (Koiranen Motorsport) were the first to set a time. Pierre Gasly (R-Ace GP) was also part of a three-handed battle for pole. They swapped first place and the final lap proved decisive.

Daniil Kyvat set the fastest time in 1m 56.786s while Nick Cassidy (Fortec Motorsports) caused an upset by clinching second place in front of Gasly and Vandoorne.

When the Group A drivers took to the track they had Kvyat’s provisional pole in their sights. Nyck de Vries (R-Ace GP), Norman Nato (RC Formula) and Miki Weckstrom (KTR) all went for it. Nato was the first to beat the Russian’s time with a lap in 1m 56.583s. Oscar Tunjo (Tech 1 Racing) went one better and the Columbian in the iRace Professional colours clinched his maiden pole position the Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup in 1m 56.295s. De Vries snatched second place at the flag.

Driver quotes

Oscar Tunjo: “It’s my first pole in the Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup. We’ve been on the pace throughout the weekend; it’s a great reward for everybody. Yesterday we were among the front-runners so I think we’re in with a good chance.”

Daniil Kvyat: “It was a difficult session as there was a lot of traffic. My car’s really great to drive. All I have to do is to turn the wheel and accelerate and the times come down by themselves! A pole and victory yesterday and a place on the first row this morning; I’m on a roll! Making a good start to the season is decisive for the rest of the year.”
