Hall to fly now and he's on a roll... three podiums in four races so far this year
This is a breeze for Hall... it's green and he takes gate 6 well in his stride. Textbook flying, says Mangold
Done and dusted. He's through and that's the fastest time so far today 1:06.833
And he had nothing to prove in that round... that is a clear sign for the Round of 8!
And now the showdown of the day! It's Bonhomme V Arch and we could see both of these pilots progress through to the Round of 8... this is the one to watch!
In 2014 Arch had some issues with the track and deviated from the course... yesterday in Qualifying he had engine issues... is this one jinxed for the Austrian?
He handles the pressure well so it could go either way for Arch... but he can't take his eye off the ball for even a split second in this round against Bonhomme
Tight lines, he's doing it! This is a great run but it's under review...
It's a 1:06.178! AND that is the fastest time of the day so far... and that's what we expect from Arch!
He's smashed Hall's time and that gives Bonhomme a crystal clear message... this ain't over just yet
Bonhomme has 42 podiums under his belt and won here last year...
There's a lot of love out there from the home crowd but he needs to avoid those distractions if he's to beat Arch
Although taking the fastest loser spot is an option...
It's red in the first half but he's been making time up on the second leg
But it's still red... clean, but we don't think he can squeeze past Arch
It's a 1:06.961 and that is a nail-biter!
QUICK RECAP: HALL // ARCH // BONHOMME GO THROUGH!
And we called it here earlier... BONHOMME V ARCH FOR THE SECOND TIME TODAY... AND THIS TIME ONLY ONE OF THEM CAN MAKE IT THROUGH!
ARCH AT THE RACE AIRPORT: It was the second proper flight and I just tried to prepare as well as possible. It's annoying that Paul and I are flying again together... "
ROUND OF 14 WINNERS:
BONHOMME (FASTEST LOSER)
