Alex Palou and Campos Racing have secured pole position for tomorrow´s GP3 race at Spa-Francorchamps. Although it was a complicated qualifying session, things have improved in Race 1. Palou and his teammate Zaid Ashkanani started from 14th and 22th on the grid, but it was a different story in the afternoon.

Palou, with a solid race pace, has made steady progress and took 8th place securing pole position for Sunday´s race. Ashkanani came 14th.
