Formula E Donington Park test - Day two - results

On July 3-4 FIA Formula E Championship conducted its first official tests at Donington Park.

20 drivers were able to pilot the all-electric racers and compare performance to each other. Because all cars are the same, just setting, race strategy and drivers skills and a little bit of luck will decide who will win.

Lucas di Grassi led the pack with a time of 1:31.973 for Audi Sport ABT team. Second was Sebastien Buemi from e.dams-Renault, who led the first session and third is Venturi driver Nick Heidfeld.

Lucas di Grassi stated:

“It was my first time driving the car with full power and I’m really pleased with the performance. With Daniel at Silverstone for GP2, I had the use of two cars so was able to do a lot of work in race mode. We had very little problems and I was very pleased with the way the Abt team worked, and I’m looking forward to getting in the car next week.”
