Sergio Sette Camara will start Saturday's Feature Race from Abu Dhabi from pole position as he edged Callum Ilott by less than a tenth of a second.

The Brazilian takes his second pole position of the season setting a 1:49.751 on his final run, jumping up from third on the grid.

A number of laps in the final moments were ruined when Sean Gelael spun at the penultimate corner before stalling his engine at the entrance to the pit lane. 

Ilott was just ahead of him on the road and managed to get his time-stamped down. Behind the Briton, who took pole at Monza, was Louis Deletraz.

His teammate Nobuharu Matsushita was fourth fastest, four-tenths down on the pace set by Sette Camara. 

Guanyu Zhou was fifth, ahead of the 2019 F2 champion Nyck de Vries, who secured the title in Russia two months ago. 

Having been announced as a full-time 2020 F1 driver earlier this week, Nicholas Latifi ended his final qualifying session in F2 in seventh place, two-tenths ahead of Jack Aitken.

Nikita Mazepin was ninth, while Mick Schumacher, who will remain with Prema next season rounded out the top ten.

Maheever Ragunathan takes a penalty for the start of Saturday's race, and will be required to start from the pit lane. 

At the end of the session, Ragunathan was found guilty of  "carrying out a practice start even though two cars were ahead of him on the grid, and as a result, the stewards were forced to hand him a penalty.

  • Crazy how De Vries goes to FE and a mediocre Latifi gets an F1 seat
