Stefano Coletti in third row in a close qualifying at Monza

06.09.2013: A tight qualifying session has had Stefano Coletti among the main protagonists




A tight qualifying session has had Stefano Coletti among the main protagonists of the pole position race today in Monza's ninth round of the GP2 Series 2013.



The Monegasque driver in force at Team Rapax - that is the current classification leader - posted a personal best of 1'31.993, which was the sixth quickest time of the session, obtained in the second run.


The pole position was set by Sam Bird (Russian Time), who will have Fabio Leimer (Racing Engineering) starting at his side on the grid of the Main Race tomorrow. Felipe Nasr (Carlin), that is currently second in the classification, obtained only the twelfth time.



Stefano Coletti:


"We did a great job since free practice of this morning, also in terms of race pace. As expected qualifying has been quite close here and the top six drivers are within only two tenths therefore the battle is going to be quite tight tomorrow.


The start is going to be a crucial moment also considering the length of the straight and the challenge of the first corner, but strategies might also play an important role".


The weekend's programme will resume tomorrow with the Main race, scheduled at 15.40 (GMT+2) while the Sprint Race will take place on Sunday at 10.35. Both races will be covered live by Sky Sport F1 HD.
