Joel has qualified 12th and 10th respectively for the final two races of the weekend at Spa.
Joel went into the second qualifying session of the day hoping to make up for the difficulties of Q1, but could do little to improve his fortune as he again wound up in the midfield.
Lando Norris completed a trio of pole positions, while Joel will start each of the weekend’s three races as the leading Team Motopark runner – although far from satisfied with the overall outcome.
Next session: Race 1, 12.15 local time (GMT+02:00) tomorrow.
“Not what we were hoping for, obviously. It’s been a tough day, but we’re normally strong in the races and at least there are plenty of overtaking opportunities at Spa. We will have to make sure we take everything we possibly can – every single point – from the races this weekend, limiting the damage in the championship.”
