GP2 Silverstone: Nato sneaks in pole at Silverstone

Norman Nato leads an all-French front row for the Silverstone round of the GP2 Series.
Norman Nato has taken pole position for the fifth round of the 2016 GP2 Series at Silverstone after getting his fastest lap in just before a disruptive red flag period.

The Racing Engineering driver – a race winner this year in Spain – stopped the clock 1min 38.261secs just moments before the red flag was brought out to clear the spun MP Motorsport car of Oliver Rowland.

With other drivers unable to complete their flying laps at a time when many were set to go quicker, Pierre Gasly will line up alongside his fellow Frenchman in second place, with Nicholas Latifi impressing for DAMS in third.

Championship leader Raffaele Marciello gets away from fourth place as he looks to protect a slim 10 point advantage over Mitch Evans, who starts seventh. Fellow title contenders Sergey Sirotkin and Antonio Giovinazzi qualified fifth and sixth.

Austria race winner Jordan King starts in eighth position, with Pic and the compromised Rowland completing the top ten.
