German F3 points leader Markus Pommer comfortably led the timesheets in free practice for round three of the season at Spielberg.
In a grid of 11 drivers, ten had various lap times disallowed due to track limits, which proved to be of little concern to Pommer, who posted the session-topping result with his final flyer.
Van Amersfoort Racing’s Sam MacLeod was 0.35s down in second, with Indy Dontje just half a tenth behind. Another VAR racer Weiron Tan recorded a solid fourth, while Nabil Jeffri rounded out the top five.
SMP-backed racer Nikita Zlobin put his ADM-run machine in sixth, narrowly ahead of JBR’s Nicolai Sylvest.
Andres Mendez led series debutant Santino Ferrucci, with Maximilian Hackl and returnee Luca Iannacone making up the rest of the field.
