Qualifying 1
LOPEZ takes pole in the last second, DEN TANDT misses top place in his last lap

This morning qualifying has been one of the most thrilling of the season, and one more time Jose Maria LOPEZ wrote his name on the top of the classification.

"This is definitely my best qualifying this year. I did a mistake in my second lap and went out of the track, it was difficult in the beginning because some parts of the track were still wet. Then I pushed all time, trying different lines. On the last 5 minutes the track was improving a lot and the classification was changing all the time. We knew that the last driver on track would take pole and this is exactly what we did."

Mike DEN TANDT was on the pace but did not have the opportunity to make a quick lap in the last minutes when the track was quicker.

"I drove safe at the beginning and I was in the top 4. 2 laps before the end I was blocked by another car, and in my last lap I pushed harder because it was my last chance, unfortunately I went straight coming into a corner. I am quite disappointed but confident with the speed we can have."
