It’s time for the second practise session of the weekend, with all the drivers immediately on track. After the first set of attempts Cassidy and Evans lead the way, with the same duo on top at the end of the Monaco round once again in the top spots.

Maserati’s Günther, a main character of last year’s round with his first podium for the Italian outlet, is the first driver to sign a lap in the 1:02s, as debutant Paul Aron slots in behind him in P2.

Di Grassi goes in the lead with 18 minutes to go, for a strong performance by the ABT driver in 1:02.180s. Nissan’s Rowland holds P2 ahead of Andretti’s Nato.

Eriksson, Jaguar development driver who is driving for Envision this weekend, slightly made contact with the wall at Turn 11 trying to prepare Turn 12 at best.

The first red flag of the day is issued shortly after as Ticktum touches the wall bringing a banner on track. Running resumes with six minutes to go.

Edoardo Mortara jumps up to P2 with a 1:02.270s, with Cassidy improving to P3 after a setup change and return to yesterday’s specifics. Sette Camara almost hits Vandoorne from the back as the two of them get close and personal.

In the final moments of the session Günther returns back to the top spot, with championship leader Pascal Wehrlein making up for a tough Friday by bolting to P3.

Three different powertrains in the top three spots might be an index of how close the actual points-awarding sessions will be.

The Maserati driver signs off a 1:02.170s as the fastest time of the day so far, with Di Grassi 0.010s off his benchmark. Wehrlein, Morata and Vergne complete the top 5, whereas Cassidy, Rowland, Nato, Vandoorne and Daruvala round off the top ten.
