6th and 16th for GFH team iSport duo.....
Giedo van der Garde (NED) -- 6th
Hamad Al Fardan (BAR) -- 16th

GFH team iSport are back in Bahrain this weekend at the Bahrain International Circuit for the final round of the GP2 Asia Series. Both GFH team iSport drivers were in action today in qualifying for tomorrow's feature race.

Dutch driver Giedo van der Garde will start from 6th after pole sitter Jerome D'Ambrosio takes a 10 place grid penalty after his black flag incident in Malaysia. Van der Garde set a time of 1m 44.173secs just 4 tenths from pole in his best qualifying performance this season. Bahraini GFH team iSport driver Hamad Al Fardan will start from 16th in front of his home crowd after setting a time of 1m 44.673secs. The top 18 was covered by just 1 second again showing how competitive this year's GP2 Asia Series is.

Paul Jackson (Team Principle)

"The qualifying session went quite well. Giedo feels comfortable with the car, he was only 4 tenths away from pole which is the closest he has been so far this season so he will be looking for a good result tomorrow. Hamad Al Fardan had a good run on his first set of tyres and was in around 7th or 8th position but the second set of tyres didn't seem to work too well for him so he dropped back. His race pace should be good as he has a good balance with the car so I think he has a good chance of getting points tomorrow".

Tomorrow's race starts at 4pm local time.
