Kevin Magnussen made it two World Series by Renault pole positions from two qualifying sessions at Spa this weekend by comfortably taking top spot in the rain on Sunday morning.
The Dane, who led for a long period of race one before eventually retiring after getting hit by Arthur Pic, bounced back in style to comfortably take pole for race two by six tenths of a second.
The pressure had been on Magnussen, as prior to his pole lap two minutes from the end of qualifying he was sitting down in 15th place. But seconds after Robin Frijns had deposed Sam Bird for first position, Magnussen crossed the line behind the Dutchman to relegate him to second place.
Frijns was safe in second as Bird stopped at Blanchimont on his final lap, while a late effort from Jules Bianchi got the Ferrari junior driver onto the second row at the expense of Lewis Williamson.
Fifth place still marks Williamson's best qualifying of the season by some margin, as his previous best was 18th. The Red Bull-backed Scot has struggled so far this season as newcomer team Arden Caterham gets to grips with the series, but he was able to use the conditions to his advantage to haul himself into contention.
Nick Yelloly is sixth on the grid, while Nico Muller, Walter Grubmuller, Jake Rosenzweig and Daniil Move compled the top 10 ahead of race one winner Marco Sorensen.
