Jagonya Ayam On The Pace In Pau Qualifying

Jagonya Ayam with Carlin driver Tom Blomqvist has qualified to start tomorrow’s second race of the weekend in fourth position following a tightly fought qualifying session in the FIA Formula Three European Championship as part of the Grand Prix de Pau weekend in France. Team mate Antonio Giovinazzi will start tomorrow morning in sixth while Gelael will line up 13th overall after the frantic qualifying session.

The Jagonya Ayam with Carlin team were split up once again for qualifying with Gelael out on his own in the first group and Giovinazzi and Blomqvist taking the track later. The opening qualifying session of the day featured Gelael with his Carlin Volkswagen powered Dallara; the Indonesian took to the track for the 20 minute session in order to set his best lap time.

After a strong qualifying and race one Gelael was hoping to replicate the result and had soon enough moved into the top ten – and his progress would continue as he made his way up into eighth with seven minutes left on the clock.

Gelael fell to ninth just before a red flag halted proceedings while marshals dealt with the crashed car of Tatiana Calderon who had hit the wall at Foch. Once again this was only a short delay before the Jagonya Ayam with Carlin man could resume his qualifying session in which he had just 4.15 minutes to set his next flying lap. Upon the restart Gelael had set a personal best first sector and improved on his final lap to set the seventh quickest time of the session.

The second group, consisting of Giovinazzi and Blomqvist took to the track a few minutes later for their 20 minute session. However it was a relatively slow start to the session with neither driver setting a flying lap until five minutes had passed.

When the flying laps came, Blomqvist moved up to third before Giovinazzi did the same just a few moments later. Remaining in the top ten for the rest of the session the Jagonya Ayam with Carlin men left it later to set their flying laps and when they came they were joined by a flurry of others who had done the same. As a result, the positions changed fast with Blomqvist second and Giovinazzi third before the on track action briefly calmed.

In similar circumstances to the previous session, Spike Goddard clipped the wall and caused a red flag at the exact same point – with 4.15 minutes left on the clock – effectively giving Giovinazzi and Blomqvist one last chance in which to make their move; when they did so Blomqvist was second and Giovinazzi third. Gelael’s group turned out to be the faster of the two and with the times compiled Blomqvist had set the fourth fastest time, Giovinazzi the sixth and Gelael 13th.

Blomqvist, who will start on the second row tomorrow said, ‘I’m hoping to get a good start as that is really the best place that you can gain and lose positions. We’re looking to capitalise from there and see how it goes. We have a little bit of time still to find but I think if we stay out of trouble and make no mistakes we can have another good race. It’s also nice to have the chance to start the race where I qualified to see what we can do with the car.’

Racing gets back underway tomorrow morning at 11:15 local time.
