It's a 1:08.100 for Q2 so he's laid down two totally consistent times and we look forward to seeing Kopfstein fly tomorrow
Martin Sonka: Everything was there in the right moment in FP3 and to replicate it now is the goal. The pressure will be a little higher, but that's racing.
Canada's Pete McLeod will fly next and after picking up 2 sets of penalties in FP3 we reckon he's been nailing down his race line
180.23kts through the start gate for McLeod and this should be an exciting one!
Making light work of this Porto track along the Douro and it's green all the way as he moves well ahead of Kopfstein's time
McLeod will move ahead of Kopfstein – but how much faster?!
Q1 for McLeod is 1:07.192 and he hasn't even broken a sweat in the cockpit
And McLeod's second run now... he doesn't need to prove anything here, but it could be a further opportunity to tweak those VTMs
and he's red against his own first split time, but this is electrifying as he moves into the green for the rest of his run!
And Q2 is 1:07.270 – the winning combination of an exceptional performance and consistency – we'll be watching McLeod this weekend
Now it's Martin Sonka of the Czech Republic and the fastest pilot in FP3
But he is struggling to catch McLeod
Now for a second go and we need to see Sonka at his most aggressive out there if he wants to smash McLeod's time
But it's still red for Sonka and he just can't catch the Canadian! And now Gate 10 is under review
Bad news for Sonka – 2s added for incorrect level and he records a Q2 run of 1:10.000
And now it's Japan's Muroya, followed by standings leader Chambliss
Muroya and his team haven't had an easy start to proceedings here in Porto and missed FP1 and 2 due to some unexpected technical issues that required significant mechanical work
He's only flown the track in today's FP3 session so he's behind the others in terms of track experience
But nonetheless, the Japanese pilot is having a great 2017 including back to back wins earlier in the season in San Diego and Chiba, Japan
There goes the buzzer and it's 2s for incorrect passing of Gate 4 – Q1 for Muroya is 1:09.901 and that net time would have been pretty special
Second go for Muroya – and he really needs this track time ahead of tomorrow's Round of 14
