Sebastien Buemi will start the championship finale from the pole position as the Swiss driver was in a class of one this afternoon.
Nicolas Prost will start second with Lucas Di Grassi starting third. Oliver Turvey provided the shock of the session, as he got his NEXTEV TCR machine in fourth place.
Group one saw Nelson Piquet Jr, Prost, Sam Bird and the two Dragon Racing drivers. Once they completed their 170kW laps, it was Prost who was quickest with the fastest time of the weekend at that point with a 1:22:878. Bird finished the group second fastest, and Piquet Jr out qualified both Dragon Racing cars.
The second group saw Di Grassi, Simona De Silvestro, Mike Conway, Ma Qing Hau and Jean-Eric Vergne. Once they completed their warm-up laps, it was Di Grassi who ended the group fastest, but could only manage to go second.
Vergne went third fastest, quicker than his teammate Bird by half a tenth of a second. Conway, Silvestro and Ma could only manage 8th,9th and 10th with their laps.
All eyes were on Buemi as he started his 200kW lap. The Swiss driver drove a stunning lap and went 1.1 seconds quicker than Di Grassi and seven-tenths quicker than Prost.
Nick Heidfeld moved up to fourth in the standings with his lap, which put him in front of Abt in the race for Super Pole.
The final group saw Bruno Senna, Robin Frijns, Stephane Sarrazin and Oliver Turvey. Once they completed their warm-up laps, it was Turvey who starred in the session and moved into third place overall. Senna could only manage 13th with Frijns in 16th.
Super Pole saw Heidfeld, Di Grassi, Turvey, Prost and Buemi, who battled it out for pole position.
Heidfeld Super Pole lap was fairly messy as the German driver locked up going into the last corner and at turn three and he only managed a 1:24:827.
Di Grassi was pushing his car to the limit on his flying lap, but he made a few mistakes across the lap, but he pulled a fantastic final sector to go into the 1:22s with a 1:22:975.
Turvey continued to outperform his car in Super Pole, but he could only beat Heidfeld’s time and will start fourth on the grid.
Prost out qualified Di Grassi by 0.027 seconds, but Buemi smashed Prost’s lap to draw level on points in the championship with Di Grassi, which will set up an enticing final race.
