Felix Rosenqvist gave his hopes of taking third place in the 2016/2017 Formula E Championship a considerable lift as he claimed the Julius Baer Pole Position for the final race of the season in Canada.
Rosenqvist is desperately trying to reach a personal goal which is to finish third in the Driver’s Championship.
And the chances of that happening increased greatly when he ensured that he would start the second race of the weekend in Montreal in prime position at the front of the field.
The Mahindra driver earned three bonus points for his third pole of the year to close in on Sam Bird in the fight for third in the drivers’ standings.
Rival Sam Bird will start second.

In the fight for the main prize, there was yet more bad news for Sebastien Buemi. After getting a tough draw in Group One, Buemi was always going to struggle to make Super Pole, but a lock-up into Turn One ruined his chances before the lap had barely begun. He eventually ended up 14th.
