Alex Palou starts tomorrow from the second row of the grid with his Campos Racing car at the Sochi Autodrom. Palou delivered a strong qualifying performance leading the timesheets for quite some time. Only at the end, when several drivers put on the second set of tires, he dropped to fourth with his best lap of 1:54.061. Anyway, his fourth-quickest lap time is good enough to be in podium contention tomorrow.
