McLaren development driver Nyck de Vries has taken his second pole position of the Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 season for the opening race at Spa Francorchamps.

The 19-year-old set the fastest time in Group A and will start from the front as he has done four times in six races in the Formula Renault 2.0 ALPS category.

The Dutchman will be joined on the front row of the grid by Josef Kaufmann Racing?s Kevin Jorg, who set the pace in the Group B qualifying session. Prema Powerteam rookie Dennis Olsen will start from third on the grid alongside ART Junior Callan O?Keeffe, who will be looking for some good luck after his two retirements in Aragon.

Pacesetters in yesterday?s free practice sessions Levin Amweg and Alexander Albon make up the third row with Tech 1?s Egor Orudzhev and Prema?s Bruno Bonifacio starting in seventh and eighth.

Race winner from weekend one, Andrea Pizzitola of Manor MP starts from ninth while his fellow Frenchman, Aurelien Panis of ART Junior rounds off the top ten.
