Maximilian Guenther tops the times in the final free practice session ahead of the Monaco E-Prix.
The Maserati MSG driver topped the times with his final lap of the session, managing a time of 1m29.269s. The time knocked Mitch Evans off the top spot. The Jaguar driver’s time was 0.007s slower than Guenther’s.
It was a relatively quiet session in terms of incidents as drivers got to grips with the Monaco circuit.
Guenther topped the times early on, but was soon deposed by Evans, Sebastien Buemi and Sacha Fenestraz as lap times improved.
Buemi, Evans and Guenther spent most of the session swapping times at the top of the order, but it was Jake Dennis who was in P1 when the chequered flag fell. He dropped back to third as Guenther and Evans improved.
Sergio Sette Camara led the way for NIO, placing fourth overall ahead of Stoffel Vandoorne and Sam Bird.
It was a difficult session for championship leader Pascal Wehrlein, who could only manage 14th quickest, but his closest title rival had an even worse session. Nick Cassidy spent most of the session in the pits after complaining of vibration issues. He ended FP2 21st and 1.526s off the pace. Oliver Rowland was the only driver to go slower.
Cassidy’s team-mate Buemi ended the session seventh, ahead of Fenestraz and Jean-Eric Vergne. A late flying lap put Dan Ticktum P10.
