With pole position in the first of two e-Prix in Valencia, Spain, Stoffel Vandoorne can be a good thing for the championship. After all, his immediate opponents leave a lot further.

The qualifications in Formula E have traditionally been a tricky business for the drivers at the top of the championship. After all, the top 6 must be the first on the road, at a time when the asphalt is not yet optimal, and therefore produces slower lap times.

Stoffel Vandoorne, fourth in the standings, made the exception in Valencia. The Mercedes driver quickly qualified for the SuperPole, after which Vandoorne convincingly drove to his second pole position of the season.

“We don’t really like this circuit,” said Vandoorne with a broad smile. “During tests earlier this year, it never seemed to work to get all the puzzle pieces into place. Today I succeeded, although I had to pull out all the stops in the closing SuperPole. ”

Of the three riders who are in the standings for the West Flemish, none of them will start in the top-15 on Saturday afternoon. Provided a good result, Vandoorne can make up a lot of his points deficit.
