Adrian Zaugg maintained South Africa's strong start to the A1 Grand Prix season by securing their third straight pole position for the sprint race at Brno.

Although the nation has kept a low profile over the course of the weekend, Zaugg produced two fine laps in the qualifying segments to come away with a comfortable pole position.

Indeed, the GP2 racer admits he was surprised with the upturn in pace on older tyres, even if he was still frustrated to miss out on pole position for the feature race, thanks to 'two or three little mistakes'.

"We are just running on old tyres like most of the guys,' he said. "We were on old tyres this morning so it was very difficult to know how the car would behave on new tyres so I think we really did a good job.

"Germany was just ahead of me on the exit of turn one but to be fair I don't think it cost me that much time, but then I had two or three little mistakes from myself so I threw it away there but it is still a good position and we have a good chance for tomorrow."
