Frenchman Tom Le Coq put an end to Anthoine Hubert‘s qualifying dominance in the 2013 French F4 season, taking double pole at Magny-Cours.

In what was a wet qualifying session, Le Coq beat Russian driver Matevos Isaakyan and compatriot Jules Gounon, who held the early lead in the session, but ended up settling for third on a drying track.

Dutchman Neal van Vaerenbergh took fourth, ahead of Simo Muhonen and championship leader Hubert, who will record his lowest starting position on the grid in the 2013 season.

Dennis Anoschin and Amaury Rossero will make up the fourth row of the grid, with Kirill Karpov and Felix Hirsiger rounding out the top ten.

For the first race, which will be based on second-best times in qualifying, Le Coq will lead Gounon on the front row, with van Vaerenbergh and Isaakyan in third and fourth respectively.
