Sebastian Alvarez led championship leader Zane Maloney in British Formula 4 free practice at Snetterton.

The Mexican set his fastest time in the afternoon session, going over four tenths of a second faster than Carter Williams.

Maloney was only 11th fastest in the afternoon, but the Carlin driver set a rapid lap in the morning that left him second fastest overall and 0.164s behind Double R Racing’s Alvarez.

JHR Developments’ Williams was shuffled down to third, with less than a tenth separating him and sixth placed Louis Foster. Alongside Double R team-mates Alvarez and Reema Juffali, Foster was one of eight drivers that were at the top at some point during the morning session.

Juffali dropped to last, just behind Fortec Motorsports’ Mariano Martinez, whose team-mate Roberto Faria impressed in going fourth fastest.

Josh Skelton, recently announced by a court decision as being the winner of the rain-shortened second race at Croft, was seventh while new team-mate Alex Walker rounded out the top 10 across the two sessions, just over a second off the pace.
