Jean-Eric Vergne topped Free Practice Two for the Berlin ePrix as teams concentrated on qualifying simulations ahead of the real shootout later this afternoon.
Tyre marbling was also becoming an issue on the extremities of the circuit, waiting for the unwary driver to get caught out off-line.
Lucas Di Grassi led the way out of the blocks on his 200kW lap with the Dragon of Jerome D’Ambrosio not far away, just 7-hundredths of a second in arrears ahead of Daniel Abt.
Sebastien Buemi made his feeling clear about being balked by Luca Filippi whilst on a flying lap.
Renault e.Dams again struggled through the early part of the session, with Buemi mired down in tenth, with team mate Nicolas Prost a further five spots back. That was until the Swiss driver managed to out the best middle sector of anyone to go fastest.
Alex Lynn was also beginning to show signs of pressure from Sam Bird; effectively asking his engineer not to remind him where he was in relation to his DS Virgin team mate.
In the dying minutes, Felix Rosenqvist made a challenge for top spot, only to miss the cut by nine-hundredths of a second ahead of Andre Lotterer.
Jean-Eric Vergne currently has more than a race win of points in hand in the Formula E Championship and despite not having the same testing budget compared to the factory outfits, Vergne was positive the Techeetah team could maximise the resources they have to keep their lead.
“It is was it is”, said Vergne. “We have to play the cards we’ve been dealt”.
