Mercedes EQ driver Stoffel Vandoorne secured pole position from Julius Baer for the second Heineken London E-Prix on Sunday, followed by Oliver Rowland (Nissan e.dams) and Saturday’s pole sitter Alex Lynn (Mahindra Racing ) on the third place. Vandoorne’s team-mate Nyck de Vries starts fourth.
The German manufacturer wants to build momentum after de Vries finished second in the ABB Formula E World Championship on Saturday. With both cars in the top 4 of Sunday’s race and the title protagonists well ahead, Mercedes will try to capitalize on the drivers and teams for the title fight.

Vandoorne, who started the Super Pole Shootout with six cars, came fourth. The Belgian’s Mercedes lost time through the middle sector, but it had enough to shoot itself to the top with 1: 20.181s with by far the fastest run through sector 1.
Rowland looked typically lively as the third driver , with the rear end of his Nissan getting out on more than one corner via the 22-corner ExCeL circuit. The Brit let everything through and managed to set a little more than a tenth of a second ahead of de Vries ’first fastest lap. Second place on the grid for the Yorkshireman is the perfect way to recover from Saturday’s disqualification.

The Dutchman left nothing and cut a wall through the middle sector on the way to 1m20.352s – even with rain stains on the camera lenses.
