How does Formula E’s Groups and Duels qualifying format work?

In Season 8, we introduced a brand new qualifying format that created incredible drama and excitement before the race even started! First comes the Groups stage, which sees the grid split into two groups of 11 based on their Drivers’ World Championship position. WATCH: Catch every minute of Formula E Season 10 where you are. The fifth to 12th-placed drivers who competed in the polesitter’s group will fill the odd positions on the grid. The corresponding drivers from the other group will be classified in the even grid slots. So, if the polesitter comes from Group 1, the fifth placed driver in Group 1 will line up ninth on the starting grid and the fifth placed driver in Group 2 takes 10th and so on.
