Sebastien Buemi was quickest in the final free practice session of the weekend at Battersea Park ahead of the championship-deciding finale of the FIA Formula E championship.

The Swiss driver currently sits only five points behind championship leader Nelson Piquet Jr, with the e.dams-Renault driver setting a time of 1m23.642s to top the session, 0.263s clear of FP1 pace setter Loic Duval of Dragon Racing.

Oliver Turvey got within 0.004s of Duval’s time in third for NEXTEV TCR, with the outsider for the championship Lucas di Grassi fourth for Audi Sport Abt.

Stephane Sarrazin ended the session fifth for Venturi, ahead of championship leader Piquet of NEXTEV TCR, who was just over a second back from the ultimate pace set by Buemi.

Fabio Leimer was able to get a good lap in to finish the session in seventh for Virgin Racing, ahead of Andretti Autosport driver Simona de Silvestro, who had to resort to her second car after breaking her rear suspension early in the half hour session.

Karun Chandhok was ninth for Mahindra Racing, with Daniel Abt completing the top ten in the second of the Audi Sport Abt entries.
