James Nash and Tom Chilton qualified 14th and 15th in Q1 and narrowly missed out on the chance to progress to Q2. Both of the Ford Focus drivers were improving on their qualifying times as the clock ticked down towards the end of the Q1 session, but the red flags caused by Cerqui’s excursion at Parabolica with only two minutes left meant they finished the session outside the all-important top twelve places.

Team Aon are satisfied with its performance, however, with the team manager, Alan Cole, quoted as saying that it was a ‘very positive first qualifying experience’ since the team has already begun to close the gap to their far more experienced rivals.
