Compared to the leisurely nature of free practice one, teams wasted no time in taking to the track during the second session, all hoping to gain some ground back on the pace-setting Renault e.Dams team, despite the French outfit being the only team using the 200kW available.
The track was so cluttered that a few drivers – Sam Bird in particular – found it difficult to put in a representative time due to traffic. Additionally, increased cloud cover meant track temperatures were cooler and hinted that the Super Pole time could be slower than the times set during first practice.
Lopez and Turvey were quick to set times at the top of the order while Jean-Eric Vergne opted to bide his time – not entering the track until until the 14-minute mark.
Heidfeld and Rosenqvist also took a turn at the pointy-end of the timesheets, with both Mahindras looking extremely racy on quick Nick’s home ePrix while Antonio Felix Da Costa was struggling with brake balance – his Amlin Andretti on the verge of locking up on the entry to most corners.
Daniel Abt was in all sorts of trouble back in position 15, with seemingly not much idea where the speed was lacking. Team mate Lucas Di Grassi however found something ate to jump to 4th.
