Adrien Simon has put himself in prime position to take his second World Championship in tomorrow's Mexican V-Prix by putting his car onto pole position by a comfortable margin.
The Championship leader merely needs to beat his rivals in tomorrow's race to ensure he takes that title, and if the race finishes as it is set to start he will do just that and become a two-time World Champion.
Puccio Giodano will join him on the front row - albeit two and a half tenths down - while Klaas van Snelheid heads the Italian's team mate Tumo Kinnumen on row two. Simon's closest rivals Nathaniel Powers and Allar Kangur could only managed sixth and eighth respectively - behind the Franklin's of Enrique Ruiz and Nikolai Milkovich - handing Simon an even greater advantage.
The Ingram's find themselves locking out row five once more ahead of the two Phoenix cars - who put in a stunning performance to beat the Holmqvist pair. Will Hoskins and Felix Beyer qualified thirteenth and fourteenth respectively but will start on the back row of the grid after the team failed to submit a strategy in time.
That promotes Elroy Wagner to thirteenth on the grid ahead of Johan Halvosen, who beat his new team mate Gabriele García by one place and four tenths of a second. Viktor Östberg was back behind his team mate but clear of the two FIRST's and Meteor cars - with home hero Felix Pérez leading the four - while AMR rounded out the session, with Finn Schnyder once more ahead of team mate Dmytro Kovalenko.
