Daniel Juncadella breezed to pole position by almost a second in the GP3 feature race qualifying session at Spa-Francorchamps this morning.
There may yet be controversy, however, as the Tech 1 driver's improvement at the end of the session came when there were yellow flags out on the track.
Qualifying started damp and remained so throughout, with several cars spinning. But the only driver to cause a red flag was Dean Smith, who crashed at Les Combes in the early going.
Carlin Motorsport's Antonio Felix da Costa is set to line up second for the feature race, which takes place later today.
Championship leader Esteban Gutierrez (ART) was fourth fastest, four places ahead of his distant challenger Robert Wickens (Status). The Mexican is likely to wrap up the title this weekend.
