    Artem Markelov will start the Paul Ricard F2 feature race 7th on the grid with a best qualifying lap of 1m45.250s around the 5.84km French circuit which returns to the Formula 1 calendar for the first time since 1990 and makes its debut on the F2 schedule.

    Artem was eighth quickest after the first qualifying runs, with Japanese team mate Tadasuke Makino ninth, just a couple of tenths behind. But, as Artem found almost half a second on his second run to improve his starting position one slot, Tadasuke fell victim to traffic and failed to improve his time, dropping to 16th on the grid.

    Artem Markelov followed up his Monte Carlo feature race win with a fighting fourth place in Saturday’s reverse grid sprint race. Japanese team mate Tadasuke Makino continued his unfortunate first visit to Monaco, stalling on the grid and being hit by former Russian Time driver Luca Ghiotto.
    Artem did not seem to be familiar with the idea that overtaking is impossible around Monaco. Starting eighth, he was fifth by the end of lap two and took fourth when he dived down the inside of Arjun Marni at Rascasse just after half distance. He then set about Louis Deletraz, trying both the inside and outside at the first corner and then even on the flat-out ascent up the hill into Casino Square. Ultimately though, two late-race Safety Cars spoiled his challenge and he had to be satisfied with fourth as the 30-lap race finished behind the offficial Mercedes.

    Artem Markelov will start the Monte Carlo F2 feature race from the second row of the grid after an amazingly tight qualifying session ahead of tomorrow’s blue riband event on the F2 calendar.

    In Monaco the 20-car F2 field is split into two groups of 10 and Artem topped Group A with a lap in 1m21.834s until DAMS driver Alexander Albon pipped him with 1m21.727s in the dying seconds of the session to claim pole position.

    In Group B, Prema driver Nyck De Vries (1m21.737) lapped just a hundredth of a second slower than Albon to claim the other front row starting position, with Russian Time’s Japanese driver Tadasuke Makino (1m22.420s) doing an impressive job to set sixth quickest time in on his first experience of the demading 2-mile track around the streets of the Monaco Principality.
