Max Defourny will also gain a place up from fourth to third.?Dorian Boccolacci – who has raced in Pau and Macau – had to make do with fifth place ahead of an impressive effort from?Nikita Mazepin, making a return to Formula Renault with AVF.

Jehan Daruvala and?Harrison Scott will share row four, followed by?Bruno Baptista and Henrique Chaves.

Petru Florescu is making a Formula Renault debut in another AVF car, and was 19th out of 23 drivers.
