Carbone on pole position for Macau F3 Grand Prix

Fabio Carbone from Brazil will start the Macau Grand Prix from pole position in his Signature Plus Dallara-Renault. Carbone set a time of 2 minutes 13.016 seconds round this 6.2 kilometre street circuit next to the South China sea. The race celebrates its fiftieth anniversary when the Grand Prix is run on Sunday.
Carbone said "I have confidence in the car and I was able to push alot, this is a good start for the race."
In second place in practice was Australian Ryan Briscoe who said "I'm so happy to be on the front row on Sunday." Third was fellow-Aussie James Courtney, the Japanese F3 Champion who had to rely on a time set in the first qualifying session.
Courtney said "It should have been better than it was this afternoon but it is a race with a long straight and overtaking opportunities so it should be good."
Top British driver was Danny Watts who qualified in sixteenth position.
