Qualifying

After rain the day before the track was very wet on Sunday morning. As it started to dry the track turned greasy, and by the end of round one the track was completely dry.

 

The track layout was flowing with an intricate middle section. There were two distinctly high-speed chicanes.

Individual round scores were as follows.
