Bahrain 2 - Qualifying times

Giedo van der Garde will start from pole position for the second GP2 Bahrain feature race of the year, with Davide Valsecchi alongside him at the front.
Caterham's Giedo van der Garde set the fastest lap time of the Friday morning practice session at the start of GP2's second consecutive weekend at the Bahrain International Circuit at Sakhir.

His fast lap time survived a post-race stewards investigation for being set while running off the track at the final corner. It was 0.145s ahead of the best time Davide Valsecchi could set early in the session, also on the harder prime tyres.
