Calado times it right to take pole in Spain

Fabio Leimer meanwhile had played arguably the smarted game of anyone: he'd joined the early rush out onto the track and picked up a creditable fourth place. Moreover he'd done that on the harder tyres which left him the chance to come out later in the session on the soft tyres for another go in the quieter portion of the afternoon. He managed to improve a little and push his way into second spot a little over two-tenths off Calado's pole time, and by far the best run of the second half of qualifying.

Having had their best chance on sort compound tyres wrecked early on, a few cars came out toward the end of the session hoping that even on the hard compound tyres they might be able to improve on their compromised early runs. Coletti and Simon Trummer were among those to find extra pace, but Trummer then blotted his copybook by losing the back end of the Arden next time through turn 4 to leave the car beached in the gravel. The session ended under local waved yellows.
