Lucas di Grassi swept to his second Formula E pole position on Saturday in Montreal, cutting title rival Sebastien Buemi's championship lead down to just seven points.

Di Grassi topped both the opening heats of qualifying and Super Pole, posting a final lap of 1:22.869 to edge out Buemi by two-tenths of a second.

Buemi will drop from second to 12th on the grid after Renault e.dams was forced into a battery change following a sizeable crash in practice, leaving the team with a sizeable repair job to complete ahead of the race.
