Up front was business as usual, as Franklin replicated the front row lock out they achieved in Australia, albeit the other way around. Liverpool's Adrien Simon completed the top three, but team mate Karl Beckenbauer was disappointed with twelfth, citing traffic as his main issue.
The Rossi's line up fourth and fifth, Domenicalli once more ahead of Giodano, with Powers and Thunder showing strong once more for Downton in sixth and ninth. AMR also secured a double top ten start with Nakumaya seventh and Beyer tenth, while Westwood just missed out, Hoskins lines up eighth, Kinnumen eleventh.
Harrison and Hutchinson are thirteenth and fifteenth for Meteor, sandwiching Judson Sikes, who achieved his and Ocelot's best ever grid position. FUN and Warrior will take the grid line astern, while Hugh Dwyer ended the session as the slowest runner.
At the back, Mattson will head Ellington, Milkovich and Wilson, should both Ingram and Lucas submit strategies prior to the race.
Looking forward, it's the closest Qualifying we've seen this year so far by some margin, but will that translate into a potential race win battle? Will Franklin finally get some competition this season? Join us for the Brazilian V-Prix to find out!
