November 10th, 2014 by

Will Stevens led a British lockout of the top three places in Formula Renault 3.5 qualifying at Jerez, while title contenders Carlos Sainz Jr and Roberto Merhi struggled.Strakka driver Stevens, who has struggled for much of the year with his team to get the most out of FR3.5’s Michelin tyres over a single lap, went to the top of the times with three minutes remaining.His lap came just seconds after Oliver Rowland and Will Buller had moved to the front, and nobody would challenge their places at the head of the field after that.While most of the attention in the session focused on whether Merhi and Zeta Corse could bounce back from a bad Friday of free practice, the championship outsider ended up having a better session than title favourite Sainz.Merhi – one of the only drivers to improve with his final lap – was able to salvage 10th on the grid, while Sainz was left languishing in 15th.”It was a stange session,” Sainz told AUTOSPORT.
