Robbie Kerr was left ruing a slight error for failing to capture both his and Team Great Britain's second pole position in A1 Grand Prix, even if he was pleased to secure their first front row starting placing of the season.

Attempting to repeat his pole position at the Indonesian Sentul circuit from last season, Kerr had proved one of the front runners in practice and arguably went into qualifying as the favourite to secure the top spot.

However, despite topping the second segment and proving second fastest in the fourth and final session, New Zealand's Jonny Reid had already done enough to keep pole position out of British hands, leaving Kerr to settle for second by just over three hundredths of a second.

Still, Kerr claims that running wide on turn three of his fastest lap almost certainly prevented him from securing pole position, even if he is now confident he will be able to have the race pace to beat Reid and breaking Great Britain's A1 duck.

"I'm disappointed not to be on pole, my slight error on the last run cost us the top slot. I was running well but hit the power a little too early exiting Turn 3 and caught the curb. That said I don't want to take anything away from Jonny Reid, he did a great job to take pole!

"We should be strong for tomorrow's races, the car is on the pace, we're on the front-row and I want that first win!"
