After a difficult race yesterday, Marco Wittmann will be hoping for a better result from eighth place on the grid.

Yesterday’s race winner Gary Paffett starts in tenth place ahead of team-mate and series returnee Pascal Wehrlein.

Frenchman Loïc Duval claimed twelfth with the BMW duo Augusto Farfus and Bruno Spengler behind him.

Audi’s woes continued as they claimed four of the final five positions. The team has put their difficulties down to a combination of oversteer and the new aerodynamic rules which have come into force this season.

Rookie Robin Frijns is the lead of quartet in fifteenth ahead of: Nico Müller in sixteenth, Jamie Green in seventeenth and Mattias Ekström will line up last.
