Teams took their first opportunity to record 200kW power laps, but around the tight and narrow circuit many drivers were finding it difficult to get a clear lap. Techeetah however appeared to be handling the bumps of Circuit Des Invalides much better than the opposition.
Sam Bird appeared quietly confident, running just two-tenths behind Vergne despite recording his time on only 180kW. While the Brit lost the majority of the time to Vergne in the final sector, Bird declared that the DS Virgin team was “in a good place” heading into the race.
After crashing heavily in first practice, Nelson Piquet was able to complete second practice whilst his Panasonic Jaguar team went to task building a complete new car from a spare tub. However, despite slotting into third with a few minutes remaining, the Brazilian collected the barriers at turn six and damaged the front left.
It was a tough start in general for Jaguar, with Mitch Evans also facing a ten-grid penalty by virtue of a transmission change. Panasonic Jaguar team boss, James Barclay was philosophical.
“We’re pushing hard, we have a fast car but there’s no room for error,” said Barclay.
Unlike this morning, second practice was devoid of any further incidents with the remaining teams.
