Ralph Boschung took the 10th place during his first run during the qualifying. his lap time was 0,5 sec away from pole position at that moment. Roberto Merhi wasn’t able to put a clean lap. He went wide in turn 4, and his car jumped even a bit into the air. The 17th position for Merhi during his first run.
Both drivers went out on their second new set of tyres. Ralph managed to improve his middle sector enough to move up to 9th position. While Roberto Merhi still seemed to struggle and got the 19th position at that moment, but both drivers were the last two cars still trying to improve their lap times. Ralph and Roberto both improved their first sector again, but not the other two sectors what finally resulted in.
P9 Ralph Boschung
P19 Roberto Merhi
