The two TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E team drivers, Andre Lotterer and Pascal Wehrlein, led the last practice session of the weekend ahead of qualifying for Round six of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship.

The track was damp, as it had rained overnight, but that did not stop all the teams from getting out on track as soon as there was a green light at the end of the pitlane. The track dried somewhat during the session, allowing the teams to set full 250 kWh laps, although some of them had to deal with traffic.

Edoardo Mortara (ROKIT Venturi Racing) and Sergio Sette Camara (Dragon-Penske Autosport) were the only two drivers who made a trip to the gravel traps on the circuit, although Mortara was picked up by a crane, dropped back onto the tarmac, and was able to continue. Sette Camara reported an issue that kept the car driving despite the braking.

The Jaguar Racing team seemed to have mixed reports at the end of practice. Sam Bird found a bit of pace compared to yesterday, as he set the third fastest time of the session ahead of Rome Round four polesitter Nick Cassidy (Envision Virgin Racing). Mitch Evans, Bird’s teammate, is sixteenth.

DS Techeetah is one of the teams that seemed to struggle the most, with two-time Formula E Champion Jean-Eric Vergne and last year’s Champion Antonio Felix Da Costa in the bottom six places at the end of the session.

The weather forecast for qualifying is dry for the Circuit Ricardo Tormo today, with the first group heading out into qualifying at 10:00 CET (09:00 BST).
