Sunday, 2 July, EVIAN (France): Team Abu Dhabi’s Alex Carella will start the UIM F1H2O Grand Prix of France from pole position for the second time in two years.
The Italian set the mark for his rivals to chase with a 48.98s lap around the 2080 metre circuit very early in the session, which proved to be too good, giving the tree-time world champion his 13th pole position.
Shaun Torrente’s hopes of taking his first Grand Prix win in France took a severe knock after the Victory driver crashed out of qualifying on just his fourth lap, his time of 52.35s putting him in 15th, but the American must wait to see how bad the damage to engine and boat is. Any change would drop him further down the field. Full story here: F1H2O UIM World Championship http://bit.ly/2tEEIiQ
