Rowland Seals Pole In Rain-Soaked Qualifying For Seoul E-Prix Round 15

Oliver Rowland steered to a fifth Julius Baer Pole Position in Formula E, outstripping Lucas di Grassi (ROKiT Venturi Racing) by more than half a second in properly tricky conditions as the heavens opened again in Seoul.

The future teammates faced off on a rain-soaked Seoul circuit, and both were ultra-committed and fighting at the wheel to keep everything together. Rowland had gone quickly in the middle sector through the Duels and the Yorkshireman produced again in the Final to outdo di Grassi by 0.623s with a 1m35.406s more than enough.

Mitch Evans (Jaguar TCS Racing) did his bit in the title fight to line up third, beaten to the Final by di Grassi. Stoffel Vandoorne (Mercedes-EQ) starts seventh in the Mercedes-EQ Silver Arrow 02.
