Augusto Farfus and Tom Blomqvist are relegated five grid positions due to a breach of the rules during the warm-up. They will start race two of the weekend from 18th and 24th. The second pole position of the season went to Audi driver Mike Rockenfeller with a fastest lap of 1:34.516 minutes.

Quote from the best-placed BMW driver:

“I said after yesterday’s disappointing opening race that today would be a new day with a new chance to attack. I did a very good job of proving that in qualifying. We are now very well placed for the race. We will have to wait and see what the weather does. It is forecast to rain. Whatever happens, we will do our best to get the maximum out of the race.” – Marco Wittmann (BMW Team RMG, 3rd)
