Jean-Eric Vergne will start from pole position for the 2019 Monaco ePrix.

The Frenchman was second in Super Pole behind Oliver Rowland but the Brit will take a three-place grid penalty for causing a collision in the last round in Paris.

The Nissan e.dams driver’s demise elevates Mitch Evans to second but the Kiwi is currently under investigation for a Super Pole procedure infringement. Pascal Wehrlein is provisionally third on the grid, ahead of Rowland, Felipe Massa and two-time Monaco race winner Sebastien Buemi.

The championship contenders had another tricky qualifying session. Antonio Felix da Costa was the highest of those in ninth despite being the first group. Championship leader Robin Frijns will start twelfth, whilst his team-mate Sam Bird will be in thick of it once again in fifteenth.

Lucas di Grassi will be right behind Frijns in thirteenth but Andre Lotterer had a disastrous qualifying, as he was the slowest of all twenty-two drivers. The German will be up one place on the grid though because of Edoardo Mortara‘s three-place grid penalty.

Jerome D’Ambrosio is the only other driver to take a grid drop, as the Belgian’s seventeenth position will become twentieth. What would have been his pole position, Rowland still gets the three points for his championship tally.

The race gets underway at 15:30 (GMT+1).
