Jean-Eric Vergne put his Techeetah car at the top of the timesheets on his first day of running for the team.
Having sat out day one of the first official Formula E test at Donington Park, Vergne wasted no time in getting to grips with his new car as he set a lap record for the series in the morning session.
It came after Techeetah confirmed earlier in the day that they would be using the Renault Z.E.16 powertrain.
Team Principal Mark Preston told Autosport, “It’s the first running we’ve done. There was a prolonged period of discussion.”
“They won’t tell us how to make it go fast, but they’ll make sure we’re OK and running reliably.”
Behind Vergne, Felix Rosenqvist again showed that Mahindra Racing has impressive pace by equalling teammate Nick Heidfeld’s second place in the standings from yesterday.
It was another strong day for Renault e.dams as well, with Sebastien Buemi managing third and Nico Prost two and a half tenths behind in seventh.
Daniel Abt was the faster of the two Abt Schaeffler Audi cars as he came fourth, ahead of Sam Bird and Heidfeld.
Lucas di Grassi slipped down the order from yesterday, finishing up in eleventh behind both Dragon Racing cars and the NextEV TCR of Oliver Turvey.
Meanwhile at Jaguar they were assessing the second of the three drivers vying for the second seat at the team.
With Adam Carroll taking up one seat Mitch Evans was trying to impress the team today, and while he managed to outpace Carroll it wasn’t by as big a margin as Alex Lynn managed yesterday.
Once again Venturi were bottom of the timesheets. While they were closer to the rest of the pack than yesterday, it looks as if the Monegasque team might struggle.
