Team Switzerland topped the times in practice for the Chinese round of the A1GP championship on Friday at the Chengdu circuit.

Neel Jani moved to the top of the times after outpacing initial pace-setter Team France's Nicolas Prost, who had also driven in the rookie sessions in the morning.

Jani, driving for the first time at the Chinese circuit, remained on top for the rest of the session and, with a time of 1:16.349, finished nearly a tenth of a second ahead of Prost.

Ireland and Britain take a pole each

Saturday 8th, November 2008

Ireland and Great Britain took a pole position each in today's qualifying for this weekend's A1GP rounds at Chengdu, China.

Adam Carroll will start the sprint race from the front after scoring Team Ireland's first ever A1GP pole, and he followed it up with another front row spot in the session for the feature race.

Danny Watts secured pole position on his race debut for Britain in the feature race session - denying Carroll his second pole of the day by just 0.031s - after having qualified fourth himself in the earlier sprint session.

Robert Doornbos made a fantastic start to his A1GP career by putting.........

Michael has not impressed.

Danny Watts doesn't seem too bad. If he can add some race pace then I think we have a good driver in him.
