Wehrlein fastest in second practice in Bern

Pascal Wehrlein was fastest for Mahindra Racing in the second practice session ahead of the Swiss E-Prix in Bern later this afternoon.

The German driver set a 1:19.118 even though he didn’t set any of the best sector times in the session.

Following on from their strong showing earlier this morning were the DS Techeetah entries for Andre Lotterer and Jean-Eric Vergne in a reversal of how they placed in the first practice session.

Oliver Rowland was fourth quickest for Nissan ahead of Robin FRijns in the first of the Envision Virgin Racing entries, Jaguar’s Mitch Evans, despite getting held up behind Daniel Abt,  and Jose Maria Lopez was seventh fastest for Dragon.

Stoffel Vandoorne was eighth quickest for HWA, Sam Bird was ninth despite an off-track excursion at Turn 9 earlier in the session and Edoardo Mortara rounded out the top ten for Venturi at his home race.

Alex Lynn was eleventh for Jaguar ahead of Antonio Felix da Costa and Maximillian Guenther although Guenther is under investigation at the time of writing due to going straight on at the turns 12,13,14 chicane and not coming to a stop.

Felipe Massa was fourteenth in the second of the Venturi’s ahead of Nissan’s Sebastien Buemi, Mahindra’s Jerome d’Ambrosio and the NIO of Oliver Turvey was seventeenth.

The pair of Audi Sport Abt Schaeffler entries were next up with Daniel Abt in eighteenth ahead of S3 champion Lucas di Grassi and Tom Dillmann rounded out the top twenty for NIO.

Alex Sims spent time in the pits earlier in the session and was twenty-first with the field being rounded out by HWA’s Garry Paffett, who locked up at turn 7 earlier in the session.
