Nissan e.dams Sebastien Buemi to start the race in Berlin on Pole followed by HWA’s Stoffel Vandoorne and home race hero’s Audi Sport Abt Schaeffler’s Lucas di Grassi in third.
Starting the race in fourth is HWA Racelab’s Gary Paffett after the rookie driver’s solid performance in Qualifying and Super Pole. Behind Paffett is Panasonic Jaguar Racing’s Alex Lynn in fifth while home team BMW i Andretti Motorsport’s Alex Sims rounded off the Super Pole six.
Just missing out on Super Pole was previous Berlin winner and home race hero Daniel Abt (Audi Sport Abt Schaeffler), who starts the race in seventh, ahead of BMW i Andretti Motorsport’s Antonio Felix da Costa in eighth and reigning champion Jean-Eric Vergne (DS Techeetah) in ninth. Rounding off the top ten is Mahindra Racing’s Jerome d’Ambrosio who sits one place ahead of his German teammate Pascal Wehrlein.
Starting 12th is Nissan e.dams Oliver Rowland, fresh from securing another podium finish in Monaco. Behind Rowland are fellow British drivers Sam Bird (Envision Virgin Racing) and NIO’s Oliver Turvey in 14th. German driver Max Gunther (Geox Dragon) will start in 15th ahead of Venturi’s Edoardo Mortara and NIO’s Tom Dillmann in 17th.
After a strong performance in Rome, where he claimed Panasonic Jaguar Racing’s first win in Formula E, Mitch Evans failed to make it into the top ten. Instead, the Kiwi driver will start the race in 18th.
Clipping the wall on the exit to Turn 7, Venturi’s Felipe Massa lost time around the Tempelhof circuit and will start the race in 19th ahead of Geox Dragon’s Jose Maria Lopez.
Missing out on his flying lap, DS Techeetah’s Andre Lotterer dramatically lessened his chances of a win at his home race in Berlin. The German driver will start the race at the back of the grid in front of Envision Virgin Racing’s Robin Frijns, who drops to the back after serving a five place grid penalty from Monaco.
