Antonio Felix da Costa has taken pole position for the 2020 Marrakesh E-Prix.
But it is championship leader Mitch Evans who stole the headlines for all the wrong reasons.
The kiwi falling foul of having miscalculated the amount of time remaining in his group qualifying session, crossing the line to start his flying lap 0.28s before the chequered flag fell.
The result meant that Evans failed to set any lap time in qualifying, immediately sending him to the back of the grid for today’s race.
Just to add insult to injury, Evans unofficially set the fastest lap of the group and would have been enough to put the Kiwi into the Super Pole shootout.
“Obviously I’m furious and we need to look into it. But we shouldn’t be making these mistakes,” said Evans.
Da Costa will be joined by Maximillian Gunther on the front row.
The duo spilt by a mere 0.069s
Meanwhile, fellow Kiwi Brendon Hartley will start the race from an impressive 12th position in his best qualifying of the year.
The Marrakesh E-Prix will begin from 2 am NZT.
