Lotterer leads Porsche 1-2 in practice in Valencia

Andre Lotterer led Pascal Wehrlein in a Porsche 1-2 in the final practice session ahead of the second Valencia E-Prix.

Lotterer’s 1:35.269 on a damp circuit was enough to just edge his teammate and was four-tenths faster than Sam Bird’s Jaguar.

Nick Cassidy was fourth for Envision Virgin ahead of Sergio Sette Camara, who set his time on 235kw as he stopped on track at Turn 8 during his 250kw lap.

The Brazilian driver said over the radio to his team that the car kept moving in when in neutral after he struggled to get stopped for Turn 8.

Norman Nato was sixth for Venturi ahead of Audi’s Lucas di Grassi, Mercedes’ Stoffel Vandoorne, BMW’s Jake Dennis, and Nyck de Vries rounded out the top ten for Mercedes.

Edoardo Mortara caused the only red flag in the session after he locked the rear wheels while braking for Turn 12 and spun into the gravel trap.

Jean-Eric Vergne struggled to 18th in the session and he, like Wehrlein and Dennis, had laps deleted for track limits at Turn 1 whilst Dennis also had a lap deleted after cutting the chicane.

Antonio Felix da Costa had a trip through the gravel at Turn 4 en-route to 22nd with Robin Frijns and Alexander Sims also getting away with excursions as they tried to find the limit.
