The German went to the top of the time sheets with a 1:19.118 to end the session just ahead of the DS Techeetah duo of Andre Lotterer and Jean-Eric Vergne. The Techeetahs are looking very strong here, finishing just 0.004 seconds apart and less than eight hundredths behind Wehrlein, as well as going quickest in the first practice session.
Nissan e.dams’ Oliver Rowland slotted into fourth just 0.088 seconds off the fastest time and well ahead of his teammate who could only manage 15th.
Robin Frijns ended with a 1:19.229 for Envision Virgin Racing ahead of last year’s Polesitter Mitch Evans.
The Dragon of Jose Maria Lopez was seventh, with Stoffel Vandoorne the highest placed HWA Racelab car with a 1:19.317, just 0.012 seconds ahead of Sam Bird in the second Envision Virgin Racing machine.
The top 10 was completed by Swiss racer and this season’s Hong Kong E-Prix winner, Edoardo Mortara, in his Venturi.
Last year’s winner, Lucas di Grassi, could only post a 1:20.490 in the second session despite being third fastest in the earlier first session.
