Bird Fastest in Final Practice in Hyderabad

Sam Bird flew to the top of the timesheets in the final practice session ahead of the Hyderabad E-Prix.

The Brit set a 1m13.631 to go fastest for Jaguar Racing although he had had a faster lap time deleted for track limits.

Jean-Eric Vergne was second quickest for DS Penske ahead of Nick Cassidy in the Envision Racing entry.

Edoardo Mortara was fourth fastest for Maserati MSG Racing ahead of Sascha Fenestraz for the Nissan Formula E Team, and Rene Rast for McLaren Formula E.

Pascal Wehrlein was an impressive seventh fastest for Porsche Formula E Team given the lack of running by Porsche and Andretti Formula E this weekend after his accident in FP1 yesterday which saw all four Porsche-powered cars sit out the session as the cause of the accident was investigated.

The top 10 was rounded out by Mahindra Racing’s Lucas di Grassi, Envision’s Sebastien Buemi, and Dan Ticktum in the NIO 333 Racing, with di Grassi and Buemi setting identical lap times.
