The third race of the Silverstone weekend starts at 17.15, with Lanan Racing's Kush Maini on pole position. Maini set the fastest race lap of the weekend so far in yesterday's opening encounter, and lines up at the front of the grid for the second time in British F3.
Alongside him on the front row will be Tom Gamble, the Fortec driver setting a lap time in race two that was just 0.015s away from Maini's best effort. Race one podium finisher Jordan Cane will start third for Douglas Motorsport ahead of championship leader Linus Lundqvist.
Clement Novalak starts fifth for Carlin, with a time 0.005s quicker than team mate Nicolai Kjaergaard, while Hillspeed's Jusuf Owega starts seventh ahead of Carlin's Billy Monger. Jamie Chadwick and Sasakorn Chaimongkol complete the top-10, with the grid shown below.
As an indication of how closely fought this weekend has been so far, the top-15 drivers are all separated by less than a second on race lap times.
