Wehrlein, who was the initial pacesetter in qualifying, was third, matched by ROKiT Venturi Racing's Massa who set an identical lap time to the German pilot.

Outside of the top six, Edoraro Mortara secured seventh in the second Venturi, narrowly missing out on a Super Pole appearance following a high-pace group qualifying run that was disrupted by a spin for Robin Frijns.
Nyck de Vries followed Mortara, fronting an 8-9 result for Mercedes EQ by outpacing team-mate Stoffel Vandoorne who emerged as the quickest driver in Group 1.
