Jake Dennis took in the roars from the crowd as he took pole position for the London E-Prix.
One year ago, Dennis took victory in Saturday’s race in London, and he is now in the best possible position to repeat that feat.
The Andretti driver beat championship leader Stoffel Vandoorne to pole position after setting 1:13.161.
Dennis had to beat Nyck De Vries in the Semi-Finals and Maximilian Gunther in the quarter-finals.
Despite finishing second, Vandoorne will be satisfied with his qualifying performance as his main championship rivals failed to make the duels and will start outside the top eight.
Vandoorne’s teammate Nyck De Vries will start alongside him in third place. Dragon’s Sergio Sette Camara had his best qualifying in Formula E with a fourth-place finish.
Oliver Askew, Jake Dennis’s teammate, also had his best qualifying performance of the season and will start in fifth place.
