Second free practice of the ABB Formula E London E-Prix! Today with many fans taking it to the early morning just to be able to soak the electrifying feeling in. Ahead of the E Prix, only 15 points of difference stands between first driver in the championship, Stoffel Vandoorne, and third in the standings Mitch Evans. 

With really nice weather and a bit of a heatwave here in London, we’re ready for even more heat, but on track. Pitlane opens and Evans is the first head out to the track, ahead of many others who decided to explore the track immediately. No time to kill, right? 

He crosses the line and puts the first competitive time of the second free practice, yet he’s very fast overtaken on the spot by Da Costa and Frijns on P1, with the time of 1:23.907s. There’s been a lot of back and forth between these three drivers in the first minutes of the session, soon joined by Sette Camara, Rowland and Dennis. With everyone on track, its rush hour time at London E Prix! With the incredible layout of in-and-out track, there’s a few points out there prone to traffic, especially visible at turn 16 where the drivers hold back before pushing for a power lap. 

Soon enough it is Alexander Sims going P2 just behind Jake Dennis, who’s time was 1:14.270s. After a short stop for a few of the drivers, it’s time to go out again. When it comes to the lower half of the grid, we can surprisingly see drivers such as Wehrlein, Lotterer (who had a spin) and Frijns. 

Once again, rush hour at ExCeL! With drivers like De Vries, Vandoorne and push laps, Stoffel takes P1 away from Dennis, but soon enough that P1 was claimed by De Vries, with the time of 1:13.767s. Edo Mortara jumps into P4, just behind Mitch Evans and ahead of Dennis. Many drivers went for their power laps now, with 13 mins till the end of the session. Sette Camara jumped into P3, Robin Frijns jumped to P8, and Mortara just started his push lap. With an aggressive attack, he’s only able to harness P8. Di Grassi on a flyer remains in P4. Nick Cassidy jumpes into P7. 

Red flag in FP2, and it’s Ticktum in the NIO who got off just as he started his flyer. The driver’s okay, but the car has been positioned weirdly on track which caused the red flag. With 7 minutes on the clock most have already made it into the pits, and already waiting to get back on track when we go green again. 

We go green again, and you know what it means? RUSH HOUR! Most drivers got out of the track from the pits immediately, just to do the last push before the session finishes. We’ve got Vandoorne followed by Evans followed by Bird, and Stoffel and Evans have a lot of stakes in this race, as the title fight is still very much on.  Evans goes second, ahead of Vandoorne in P3. De Vries still stays P1, and soon gets overthrown by Dennis and Lotterer. Soon enough Rowland joins on P2, pushing Lotterer down. 

 

The session ends, and the first ten of the second free practice session were: Dennis, Rowland, Lotterer, De Vries, Evans, Gunther, Vandoorne, Sette Camara and Askew.
