Nicolai Kjaergaard, Linus Lundqvist and Kush Maini were the top-three in qualifying at Snetterton this morning, here's what the top-three had to say after the session:

Pole, Nicolai Kjaergaard, Carlin:

"We've been strong in all practice sessions ahead of qualifying this season, but this is the first qualifying that we've had where we've put it all together and got pole, so I'm really happy with that.

"The track is very fast today, definitely faster than yesterday and I was a lot quicker than I could manage in testing. I hope it will stay in the same condition for the race this afternoon. I think it's going to be a season long battle with Linus, we have shown we are strong in all conditions on every track so far so I think he's a good contender and a strong driver that I need to look out for during the rest of the year."

Second, Linus Lundqvist, Double R Racing:

"That's three in a row now where we have qualified second and I won't lie that I'm a bit gutted that we missed this one. It was two tenths to pole so it was a fair bit of time to be found but the car felt good and maybe I didn't quite put my lap together but it's a front row start and we can definitely fight from there.

"It's going to be a close one in the race, we will have a good fight and it's the race where points are given out so I think we are in for an exciting race one and race two. Hopefully we can have another weekend like Rockingham with perhaps another win, starting second today gives us a good opportunity for the race."

Third, Kush Maini, Lanan Racing:

"I'm not pleased with it but I think it's a good platform to start working from in the race. As we predicted, it was close between the top three and I think it will be close for the rest of the year. Nicolai and Linus are good drivers, Nicolai is in his second year in F3 and third year in the UK, and Linus obviously did British F4 last year. So I'm not pleased with third as we had the pace for pole, but racing driver excuses and whatnot but I hope for a good start as I think we have the pace and can stay with them or even pass them."
