Mr.2003 gives the 2004 boys a lesson!

Qualifying 1.
No sooner had he regained his bearings in FR V6 than José Maria Lopez (Dams) stormed to the top of the grid. The Argentinean was the man to beat in qualifying for Saturday's Grand Race, snatching the number one spot from his team mate Jani a contender for the 2004 championship title by just three 1/1000ths of a second. The Netherlands' Jaap Van Lagen (Interwetten.com), whose car is performing noticeably better than at Imola, proceeded to do likewise, putting himself in second and knocking Jani down to third. Joining him on row two will be Britain's Robert Bell (David Price Racing), taking fourth right at the end of the session. Mondini (9th) will have his work cut out to catch the leaders, as will his main rival Sharp (Jenzer Motorsport), starting in 11th. Amazingly tight times in this first qualifying session, which saw Mexico's Martinez Leon spin off, putting paid to his racing tomorrow, but thankfully leaving him unhurt.

Jani on pole, Lopez second

Qualifying 2.
An amazing performance from the Dams team, with pole this time going to Jani and Lopez beside him on the front row. This puts the team mates in a head-to-head at the Indy start of Sunday's Super Sprint. But it was Van Lagen (Interwetten.com) and Campaniço (Cram Competition) who dominated proceedings earlier, until Lopez hit the gas in the final seconds to move onto the front row. Sharp (Jenzer Motorsport) starts in fifth ahead of Belicchi, one of his championship rivals, with Mondini seemingly in difficulty for the first time this year. It was a nightmare session for Montanari, while Bell

All the ingredients for an amazing race.
