Macau GT World Cup: Marciello snatches last-gasp pole
On his final lap of the session, Marciello set the fastest time in his Mercedes-AMG GT3, beating the previous lap record by over a second. Despite breaking the record, Marciello stated that the record itself doesn’t matter much to him. Edoardo Mortara came close to taking pole position but had to settle for second, just over two tenths of a second behind Marciello. Maro Engel finished in third place, making it two Mercedes drivers in the top three. Sheldon van der Linde was the highest-placed BMW driver in fifth, followed by Juncadella, Serra, and Farfus. The session was briefly interrupted by a red flag when Kevin Estre crashed his Porsche. He will start the qualifying race from 13th on the grid.
