Bueno leads Jimenez in Jaguar Brazil Racing one-two

Caca Bueno led Sergio Jimenez in a Jaguar Brazil Racing one-two in the Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy in Berlin.

The two Jaguar Brazil Racing drivers started first and second on the grid and held their positions off the start.

Despite Jimenez being in championship contention, the pair kept the same order throughout the race.

A late full course yellow closed the gap between the two, with Bueno having to defend hard throughout the last few laps from Jimenez.

Jimenez’s championship rival, Rahal Letterman Lanigan’s Bryan Sellers, behind Simon Evans who claimed a podium during the 25-minute-plus-a-lap race.

Adam Carroll, the former Jaguar Racing Formula E driver who replaced Stefan Rzadzinski at TWR Techeetah, finished fifth.

Sellers’ Rahal Letterman Lanigan team-mate, Katherine Legge was sixth and last of the Pro class runners.

Yaqi Zhang won the Pro-Am class with seventh overall, although the class was disrupted with a collision on the opening lap.

Legge, who started eighth, tried to make a move on Martin at the Turn 9 hairpin.

She went in too deep and spun around Bandar Aleysayi who had started from pole position in his class.

Aleysayi and Saudi Racing team-mate Ahmed Bin-Khanen came together briefly during the incident, with Aleysayi retiring from the race.

The Pro-Am class fight for the win was a race-long battle between Celia Martin and Ziyi Zhang with the pair having ‘touring car’ style collisions throughout the race.

Bin-Khanen tried to take advantage of the battle when it came to blows at the long left-hander of Turn 1 but got spun around. The incident was placed under investigation.

Zhang claimed class victory ahead of Martin with Bin-Khanen finishing third in class and ninth overall.

Jaguar VIP driver Jens Dralle was 10th with Yaqi Zhang finishing 11th.
