Frijns leaves it late to go fastest in Practice 2

Robin Frijns left it until his last lap of the session but was fastest for Envision Virgin Racing in the second practice session for the Hong Kong E-Prix.

The session was once again held on a track that was damp at the start of the session but was drying nicely by the end of the session.

Oliver Rowland was second fastest for Nissan e.dams ahead of the DS Techeetah of Andre Lotterer and Venturi’s Edoardo Mortara.

Sebastien Buemi was fifth fastest in the second of the Nissans with Sam Bird sixth for Envision Virgin and Jean-Eric Vergne seventh fastest for DS Techeetah.

Oliver Turvey was eighth fastest for NIO ahead of the HWA of Garry Paffett and the top 10 was rounded out by Daniel Abt for Audi Sport Abt Schaeffler.

Alex Sims was 11th for BMW i Andretti Motorsport ahead of Lucas di Grassi in the second of the Audi’s and the Venturi of Felipe Massa.

Tom Dillmann was 14th quickest for NIO ahead of HWA’s Stoffel Vandoorne and the BMW of Antonio Felix da Costa was sixteenth.

Pascal Wehrlein was 17th for Mahindra ahead of Jose Maria Lopez in the first of the Dragon’s and Jaguar’s Nelson Piquet.

This was despite a near miss between Wehrlein and Lopez after Lopez was recovering after a mistake at Turn 2 and Wehrlein locked up and almost hit the Dragon.

Jerome d’Ambrosio rounded out the top 20 for Mahindra ahead of Mitch Evans, who stopped on track early on in the session at Turn 6 and Felipe Nasr rounded out the field having only completed three laps.
