Schothorst (2:06.201) and Tereschenko (2:06.769) also showed a competitive pace ahead of both races.

Palou ran in sixth after making a brilliant race start and avoiding a car pile-up at La Source but finally finished 14th, with Tereschenko 16th. On Sunday, Schothorst claimed a seventh-place finish for Campos Racing banner with Palou moving up to 11th. Unfortunately, Tereschenko went off on lap four.
