Carlos Sainz Jr claimed his second consecutive pole position of the weekend and will lead the field for this afternoon's race in his DAMS model.
Yesterday's pole-sitter, Sainz Jr was first to complete a flying lap in Monza; the Spaniard appeared eager to seek redemption following a suspected gear box failure before race one. The Red Bull Junior faced strong opposition from Lotus'Marlon Stockinger who will join him on the front row. With eleven minutes remaining on the clock all twenty-one cars changed tyres, a move which seemed to suit the Filipino racer.
Despite his race one collision with Marco Sorensen, Jazeman Jaafar appeared to be back on form as he placed his ISR model on the second row of the grid, leading a fast-finishing William Buller by eight tenths-of-a-second. Pietro Fantin, who struggled to sustain his one-lap pace in race one, will start fifth on the grid for International Draco Racing.
Meanwhile, the Fortec Motorsports duo of Sergey Sirotkin and Oliver Rowland both led much of the qualifying session but finished down in sixth and fifteenth respectively. Rowland's brave overtaking saw him climb ten positions to secure eighth in the race yesterday.
Rookie, Roberto Merhi capitalised on his surprise podium finish to push his Zeta Corse up to seventh in the latter stages. He will be joined by fellow rookie, Luca Ghiotto on the fourth row. Zeta Corse's latest signing could not sustain his early pace and dropped down the order throughout the session.
Race one podium finisher Pierre Gasly and Strakka Racing's Matias Laine completed the top ten.
Laine's team-mate and yesterday's winner, Will Stevens seemed to struggle with one-lap pace and will start down in fourteenth place.
Marco Sorensen received a five-place grid penalty for his dramatic collision with Jazeman Jaafar. He now starts down in twenty-first place in the sole Tech 1 Racing model.
For race two, all drivers must undergo a mandatory pit stop and will take place this afternoon. Sainz Jr will lead the field at the start, hoping to put his gearbox troubles behind him to secure a maiden podium finish.
