Pascal Wehrlein has been stripped of pole position for Saturday's Formula E race in Paris after both Mahindra cars were deemed to have run below the minimum required tyre pressure level.

Wehrlein had edged out Nissan's Oliver Rowland to claim his second Formula E pole at Les Invalides circuit in Paris on Saturday afternoon, but will drop to the rear of the grid as a result of the infringement.

Teammate Jerome d'Ambrosio had qualified sixth, but he too will drop to the rear of the field as a result of the breach.

This promotes Rowland onto pole, with Nissan teammate Sebastien Buemi joining him on the front row of the grid.
