Daniel Abt's garage

The car of provisional pole sitter Sebastien Buemi/No.10 Team e.dams Renault was found to have exceeded the allotted 200 kw power usage and the lost his fastest qualifying lap. The Swiss driver, 2014 Champion of the World Endurance Championship, will now start tenth.

One other driver lost his fastest qualifying lap for exceeding power: Antonio Felix de Castro/No.55 Amlin Aguri will now start seventh.

As the Stewards determined that the power usage was exceeded on a Red Flag lap, the infringement wasn’t as severe as it could have been; hence, only losing fastest qualifying lap was the penalty.

The revised grid now has Daniel Abt/No.66 Audi Sport ABT Formula E Team on pole, followed by points leader Nicolas Prost/No.9 Team e.dams Renault and Nelson Piquet Jr/No.99 China Racing Formula E Team in third.

Piquet, of Germany, is also one of the three drivers to receive Fan Boost during the race. The other two drivers are Sam Bird of England, in No.2 Virgin Racing Formula E Team (starting eleventh) and Jean-Eric Vergne of France driving No.27 Andretti Autosport Formula E Team, starting fifth.
