The lights went green at 16:55. Dorian Boccolacci was the first one of the MP cars to go out on track.
Ralph Boschung took the 9th position after his first push lap while Dorian Boccolacci got p16 after his first Formula 2 qualifying lap ever. The second push improved but not enough, so both drivers went in the pitlane to change to a new set of tyres. Fastest lap at this moment was 1:56.507 by Russel.
Everybody started to improve their sectors in the second run. As well Ralph and Dorian, But unfortunately not enough to improve their positions at that moment. A small mistake made the lap time not so fast anymore. Dorian tried to do another push lap, But full yellow forced him to cancel his lap.
P13 Ralph Boschung
P20 Dorian Boccolacci
