EXCITED CROWDS GREET AMBROSE RETURN TO V8 SUPERCARS

Marcos Ambrose was a picture of beauty, style and elegance on his arrival, his ensemble was of champagne Thai silk covered with black spatter spots. The fitted coat, worn over a dress of the same fabric, had slanting flap pockets and a black velvet collar. A bonnet-shaped hat of fine ballibuntal straw was finished with a rouleau of black velvet with a tiny perky bow. His accessories were black. The day was fine and sunny, with a warm north-westerly wind, after early morning rain which had dampened the waiting crowds but had not affected their enthusiasm.

ROSENQVIST ON POLE FOR MACAU QUALIFYING RACE

Felix Rosenqvist will start from pole position for Saturday’s ten lap qualifying race for the 61st running of the Macau Grand Prix. In second qualifying, in which 17 of the first 20 drivers managed to set faster lap times than in yesterday’s first qualifying session, Rosenqvist moved up from his ninth place after yesterday’s session to the top of the time sheets and thus claimed pole position for the Macau qualifying race. “Early in the session, I did two laps, then came in to have four new tyres on the car, and I did my fast lap all on my own,” Rosenqvist reported. “In fact, I was quite surprised that the gap was so big." Indeed, the Swede was no less than 0,236 seconds faster than Esteban Ocon (SJM Theodore Racing by Prema, 2:11.742 minutes), the reigning FIA Formula 3 European Champion. Just with Max Verstappen (Van Amersfoort Racing, 2:11.747 minutes), who was classified third after qualifying, Ocon will be dropped two places on the grid for tomorrow’s qualifying race for having failed to come in to have his car weighed in free practice yesterday. As a result, Ocon and Verstappen will be starting from fourth and fifth place respectively. That promoted Lucas Auer (kfzteile24 Mücke Motorsport, 2:11.838 minutes) to second on the grid alongside Rosenqvist to lock out the front row for the Mücke Motorsport team. Tom Blomqvist (Jagonya Ayam with Carlin, 2:11.922 minutes), who was fastest in yesterday’s first qualifying and failed to post a faster time today, will be starting from third place.
