E-Prix Berlin FP2: Top Four Drivers Within One-Tenth

Maximilian Günther set the fastest time in the second free practice session for the E-Prix of Germany, amidst a small margin with competitors and a reduced driver lineup due to conflicts with the WEC event, leading to notable absences like Nyck de Vries and Robin Frijns.


– ‣ Maximilian Günther set the fastest time in the second free practice session for the E-Prix of Germany, with very small differences among the top drivers.
– ‣ Many drivers are absent from the Berlin E-Prix due to a scheduling conflict with the WEC’s 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps, including notable drivers like Nyck de Vries, Robin Frijns, Sebastian Buemi, and Nico Muller.
– ‣ Lucas di Grassi, Pascal Wehrlein, and Edoardo Mortara were closely behind Günther in the FP2 times, indicating a competitive field despite the absence of several drivers.
– ‣ Replacement drivers such as Jordan King, Paul Aron, and Joel Eriksson filled in for the missing drivers, with varying degrees of success in the practice session.

Well, folks, the E-Prix of Germany’s second free practice session has wrapped up. And guess what? Local hero Maximilian Günther nailed the fastest lap. But, hold your horses, it’s a tight race. The gap between him and the pack? Barely there.

Now, here’s a juicy bit. A bunch of drivers gave the Berlin E-Prix a miss. Why, you ask? They’re off racing at the WEC this weekend. Yeah, the 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps is stealing the spotlight. And it’s not just any drivers we’re talking about. Dutch speedsters Nyck de Vries and Robin Frijns are sitting this one out. Frijns’ buddy at Envision, Sebastian Buemi, and Nico Muller of ABT Cupra fame are also hitting the tracks at Spa instead.

Back to FP2. Günther was flying, clocking in at 1:02:177. But it’s not all about him. Lucas di Grassi was breathing down his neck, just 0.012 seconds slower. Pascal Wehrlein and Edoardo Mortara? They’re lurking right behind, within a whisker of Günther.

And then there’s Jordan King. Stepping in for De Vries, he’s a bit off the pace, trailing Günther by 0.458 seconds. Not too shabby for a former Formula 2 driver, though. As for the Envision stand-ins, Paul Aron and Joel Eriksson, they’re a tad slower, finishing 20th and 22nd in FP2.

Oh, by the way, big shoutout to Olly Darcy for the collab on this piece.
