Nico Müller has taken his second pole position of the weekend at the Nürburgring with a late flyer after initially falling outside the top five in qualifying.
During the first run, the Swiss driver found himself nearly a full second behind Rene Rast, who held provisional pole after the first set of laps.
When cars went out again, Robin Frijns initially took the top spot with a 01:47:096 until Müller managed a 01:46:958 out of his last flying lap to take pole position for the second time of the weekend.
Frijns had to settle for third, while an unhappy Rast was dropped to third, visibly shaking his head after the chequered flag had dropped.

The top ten was completed by Marco Wittmann in tenth, ahead of Philipp Eng, Timo Glock and Lucas Auer.
