We’re back for a second day of action in Jakarta, with the third practice session of the weekend. Today, its been Günther on top of the leaderboard again, followed by Jake Dennis of Avalanche Andretti and Mortara in P2. It will be important for the drivers to get a glimpse on the conditions on track today ahead of qualifying, as the qualifying was hugely influential on the results of the race, something we’re not really seeing a lot in Formula E this season.

Its green light and we start the session and most of the drivers made it out on track nice and early. The first one to set a lap time was Gunther, with the time of 1:11.354s, which was much slower compared to everyone else that followed, with most of the drivers in the 1:08-1:09 makes. After the initial first lap, it’s been Dennis on top, with 1:08.871s to his name. The track still looks very dusty, something that made it a bit more difficult to overtake yesterday in the race, a race that wasn’t the usual Formula E chaos.

With 20 minutes left on the clock and it was Vergne in P1, followed by Dennis, Vandoorne, Nato, Cassidy, Mortara, Rast, Wherein, Ticktum and Da Costa in P10. It appears that today it’s been a better day for Cassidy, who was running in the Top 10 at that time. Wasn’t looking as good for the Jaguars, with Bird in 12th and Evans in 17th.

15 minutes left and many drivers made it to the pits for tyre changes, to start prepping for the qualifying session coming soon after FP3. Today, the race will be longer than the one yesterday, so despite the experience from yesterday, there’s still something to learn for the drivers.

With only 10 minutes left of the session, it was Fenestraz in P1 with 1:07.942s, followed by Dennis, Günther, Mortara, Buemi, Di Grassi, Vergne, Vandoorne, Cassidy and Wehrlein in P10. It was a very quiet session, with minimal errors ( Müller clipped the wall before the end of the session) and everyone finished unscathed.

The final order after the last free practice session in Jakarta:
