Behind, Germany’s Jannes Fittje (Fortec) took third spot ahead of Alex Karkosik (RP Motorsport), the latter earning a row two starting position. Indian Ameya Vaidyanathan and Canadian Devlin DeFrancesco secured an all-Carlin row three ahead of Simo Laaksonen (Campos Racing) and Christian Hahn (Drivex), they both starting from row four and their highest ever position on the grid in the series. Thiago Vivacqua (Campos Racing) and his teammate Petru Florescu filled row five and rounded off the top-ten.
