Sebastien Buemi bounced back from a disappointing race one by setting the quickest time in the first practice session ahead of the second Berlin ePrix.
Jose Maria Lopez led the majority of the session but, with three minutes on the clock, Buemi shot to the top of the standings. He was more than a second quicker than Lopez, and was the only man to set a time under 1m08s.
Maro Engel pushed Lopez down to third with a late fast lap, but the Venturi driver couldn’t come close to Buemi, and finished the session 1.145s slower than the championship leader.
Lucas Di Grassi took the fourth fastest time, ahead of Felix Rosenqvist and Jean-Eric Vergne.
Having already completed a full “race weekend” yesterday, most of the drivers enjoyed a trouble free session to start the second race day in Berlin. But a number of drivers still had difficulties with the hairpin.
Robin Frijns was the first to almost be caught out, locking up as he approached the corner. Twice, he almost ran straight on, but managed to get the car around without hitting a wall. He later stopped at turn six, but was able to continue.
Adam Carroll also struggled with lock up at the hairpin. The Jaguar driver almost span the car as he tried to make it around the corner, having locked up on approach, but retook control just in time.
