Monaco ePrix - Qualifying groups

The qualifying groups for the 2017 FIA Formula E Monaco ePrix - Round 5 - have been announced.

The qualifying session lasts one hour and sees drivers divided into four groups, with each group having six minutes to set their best lap. Full power of 200kW is available throughout with drivers only able to use one car. The five fastest drivers then go out one-by-one in the Super Pole shoot-out in a bid to secure Julius Baer pole position.

The fifth fastest driver from the group stages goes out first, when he crosses the line to start their flying lap, the pitlane light turns green and the fourth fastest driver heads out onto the track and so on. The driver who sets the fastest time will be awarded an additional three points.

Qualifying for the Monaco ePrix gets underway at 12:00 (local time).
