Yesterday's rain and wet running prompted the organizers to reduce the sets of slicks available for today giving a high emphasis on tyre usage throughout the four sessions. In the first session Robbie Kerr put in the eighth fastest time and the next session saw him improve by one position. The third attempt moved A1Team.GBR into third but on used tyres for the fourth he couldn't sustain his position and he is set to start tomorrow's race from the third row in fifth.

Robbie Kerr:

"We only had two sets of tyres to use because they changed the rules so perhaps we used a set earlier that we shouldn't have done. ‘P5' – a good starting spot and we can do something from there so I'm looking forward to it. For qualifying we were consistent but didn't get that couple of tenths of a second that we needed to pip Brazil and Portugal. It's going to be hard work tomorrow and difficult to overtake but we've got a good race set-up and we'll take it from there."
