Jimenez extends championship lead with Berlin victory

Sergio Jimenez wins the second Jaguar I-PACE eTrophy race in Berlin as team-mate Caca Bueno missed out on his second win of the season.

It was an eventful race for Jimenez, who started second and was immediately under attack from third placed driver Nick Foster.

Foster and Simon Evans were both able to pass Jimenez when he activated Attack Mode, and Jimenez pushed hard to find a way through.

As in race one, Foster and Jimenez made contact as Foster tried to defend, but Jimenez was eventually able to pass the Jaguar China Racing driver to moe into second.

Bueno led in the first half of the race, but lost positions after trying and failing to activate his first Attack Mode.

The mistake allowed Jimenez and Evans to sweep past Bueno, and Foster joined them on the following lap when Bueno managed to activate the Attack Mode.

Bueno was able to climb back up to second, behind his team-mate, and acted as a moving road block against Evans when the Team Asia New Zealand driver activated his second Attack Mode.

This allowed Jimenez to pull out a small gap, but it wasn’t enough to retain his lead when he and Bueno both activated their second Attack Mode, and Evans was put back at the front of the field.

The extra power allowed Jimenez to make a move on Evans and he passed his title rival in the closing stages of the race. Bueno also challenged Evans on the final lap but couldn’t make a move stick.

Guest driver Olli Webb took fourth ahead of Nick Foster, who fell backwards in the second half of the race.

Greg Segers and Alice Powell finished sixth and seventh ahead of Pro-am winner Fahad Algosaibi.

Takuma Aoki, Paul Spooner, and Adalberto Baptista completed the order.
