Vandoorne gets the last pole position of the season

The Belgian driver took the last pole position at Tempelhof and will start in the front spot of the grid for the first time in the season.

Maximilian Guenther, with his BMW was the first driver to hit the track, setting the best time in Group 1, setting a time four hundredths of a second faster than champion Antonio Felix da Costa da Costa. The sixth place went to Rowland, who was not able to repeat yesterday's pole position. 

After some excellent laps by the drivers who were in Group 2, they left out of Super Pole all those who ran in Group 1. Sebastien Buemi for Nissan e.dams, Stoffel Vandoorne for Mercedes Benz EQ, and Envision Virgin Racing's Robin Frijns were in the top positions.

With another great job by the newly-joined Audi driver Rene Rast, the German moved into second position behind Buemi. Nyck De Vries for the Mercedes Benz EQ team and Edoardo Mortara for Venturi were both in the Top 6 after Group 3.

None of the Group 4 drivers could get into the Super Pole.

After a hard-fought Super Pole, Stoeffel Vandoorne set the pole position with a slight difference over the Nissan of Buemi, setting a lap time of 1:15.468. Rast who will start from third place. De Vries, Frijns, and Mortara complete the Top 6.

Alex Lynn for Mahindra, Neel Jani with his Porsche, Dragon's Sergio Sette Camara, and di Grassi with his Audi complete the Top 10 positions of the starting grid.

Once again the champions and Teecheetah teammates Antonio Felix da Costa and Jean-Eric Vergne, were left out of the initial Top 10 positions. Although hard considering they are not starting from the front of the grid, the pair aims to round out a brilliant season for Techeetah.
