Robin Frijns continues his excellent qualifying record in the 2020 DTM campaign by taking his fourth pole position of the season, snatching pole away from rivals Nico Müller and Rene Rast.
Rast, who took victory on Saturday, initially seemed to have pole position locked down by setting a 01:31:468 in his Audi RS5 DTM.
Nico Müller then put his car on top of the timing sheets in the closing seconds of the session by setting a 01:31:362, beating Rast by a tenth, which Frijns then improved upon by 0.018s. The Dutchman posted a 01:31:344 take pole for the fourth time this season, with Müller second and Rast third.
Rast is joined on the second row by Sheldon van der Linde. The South African posted a late flyer to go fourth fastest with a 01:31:615, 0.271s off pole.
Jamie Green was fifth fastest ahead of Marco Wittmann, who will be looking for retribution after just missing out on his second podium of the season on Saturday.
The top ten was completed by Timo Glock, Loic Duval, Lucas Auer and Harrison Newey, who was the best placed rookie in tenth place.
The Briton outqualified his fellow rookie Robert Kubica, who was eleventh despite briefly topping the sheets in the early minutes of the session. Philipp Eng also held the quickest time on two separate occasions, but ultimately had to settle for twelfth behind the Polish ex-F1 racer.
Fabio Scherer was thirteenth ahead of series veteran Mike Rockenfeller and Ferdinand Habsburg. Jonathan Aberdein will start last.
