Qualifying groups reversed for Round 5 of the Race at Home Challenge

The Qualifying groups are being shaken up for Round 5 of the ABB Formula E Race at Home Challenge in support of UNICEF, as the top six in the standings will now be the final drivers to set a time in Group 4.

In the Driver grid, three out of the first four rounds of the Race at Home Challenge has seen a driver from Group 1 claim the Julius Baer Pole Position - the only anomaly being ROKiT Venturi Racing's Edoardo Mortara storming to Pole last time out. For the Challenge grid, the top spot on the grid has been taken by a driver in Group 1 for all of the point-scoring rounds.

To raise the pressure for the top drivers in the Driver and Challenge grids, Group 1 will now have to wait for their rivals to complete their flying laps before getting out to set a time.
