Xavi Vierge produced a mature and impressive display today as he set his fastest time on his third lap which sealed a starting position at the front of the third row of the grid. The temperature increased as the session progressed and this affected the grip levels, but the young Spaniard’s early time saw him qualify only 0.354 back from the head of the second row. Tomorrow he intends to fight to a fourth consecutive top ten finish this year in front of his home crowd. Whilst the injured Remy Gardner endured a challenging day in Andalucía after falling twice in the hot 45-minute practice. The young Australian’s qualifying performance will see him start from the 10th row of the grid as he resolutely looks on to tomorrow.
