In the quarter, semi and final rounds, two drivers will compete against each other to decide their grid positions with the one posting the faster time advancing to the next round.
The winner of the knockout phase gets pole position; the loser of the final round will start second on the grid. Drivers knocked out in the semi-finals will qualify third or fourth depending on their lap times. The same applies to those who lost out in the quarterfinals, who will occupy positions five to eight.
Drivers eliminated in the group stages will be allocated grid slots as follows: drivers who were in the pole-sitter’s group will start from the odd-numbered positions while those from the other group will line up in even-numbered positions.
