Roberto Merhi stormed to his fourth Formula Renault 3.5 pole position at the ninth and final round of the championship in Jerez, Spain.
It was a case of redemption for the home favourite after a race one collision cost him the 2014 title to Carlos Sainz Jr. Caterham's FP1 recruit produced a late flying lap in the last two minutes to displace long-time leader Oliver Rowland. The young Briton, who was a close second yesterday, will join the Zeta Corse driver on the front row.
Arden Motorsport's Pierre Gasly leads a second row of rookies to sit third, one tenth-of-a-second faster than the ever-improving Tech 1 of Nicholas Latifi. William Buller is fifth in the second Arden as the team seeks to retain third in the constructors' standings.
Zoel Amberg was a surprise addition to the top six for AV Formula, beating International Draco Racing's Pietro Fantin and and the Pons Racing model of Columbian racer Oscar Tunjo. Matthieu Vaxiviere and Beitske Visser completed the top ten qualifiers for race two.
Sergey Sirotkin, third yesterday, could only manage eleventh with Will Stevens and newly-crowned 2014 champion Carlos Sainz Jr. joining the list of big names outside the top ten. Sainz and his
DAMS Racing team mate Norman Nato were fourteenth and fifteenth respectively.
Merhi's time, a 1:27.526, was two tenths faster than that of race one pole sitter Will Stevens. His team Zeta Corse are fighting for positions in the constructors' championship and currently sit twelve points behind Arden Motorsport.
