Miami ePrix qualifying: Vergne on pole (update)

Vergne storms to pole

Andretti driver Jean-Eric Vergne will start on pole position for the Miami ePrix alongside China Racing driver Nelson Piquet Jr.

The Frenchman edged out his nearer rival by half a tenth to claim his second pole position in Formula E, repeating the feat he managed on his debut in Uruguay.

Vergne said: "It's a good thing to start on pole and to collect the points. Hopefully we can finish in a good position. I will also try and push during the race but we will have to see and hopefully things will work out."

"We're hoping to make it a hat trick of podiums today," said Piquet. "We're getting better and learning all the time and it's great to be racing here which is my second home. We're in a good starting position and I'm looking forward to the race."

Prost said: "I'm confident we did our best during qualifying and it's a good result for us. It's going to be a long race today and will need to look after the car. Hopefully we can finish in the top-five and come away with some good points."
