FIA WTCC: DHL Pole Position Award

Marrakesh

At the start of the 2017 WTCC season in Marrakesh, Tiago Monteiro lapped the 2.971-kilometre Circuit Moulay El Hassan in a new qualifying lap record time of 1:21.792. It bettered José María López’s previous 1:22.024 standard and earned the Portuguese the DHL Pole Position Award for the fourth time in his career and the coveted top spot for Sunday’s Main Race. Monteiro converted pole position into a race win and is the first to lead the championship in this new season.
