Abu Dhabi GP2 Final - Qualifying times

Fabio Leimer claimed pole position for the Saturday race of the GP2 Final weekend, and will start on the front row of the grid alongside Dani Clos.
Fabio Leimer managed to claim pole position for the Saturday afternoon GP2 Final feature race by a convincing margin in the end, with a lap of 1:49.363s. But he was made to work for it by Josef Kral whose early time of 1:49.612s set a difficult benchmark for anyone to better for the remainder of the thirty minute session.

Dani Clos also made a late improvement to nip in front of Kral by four hundredths of a second, with Kral having to settle for third place on the grid alongside Luiz Razia.
