Spread the love

Today is  the day of FE’s first ever race at the Italian track, but ahead of the official racing debut the drivers will have a bit more time to get used to the track.

All cars are out on track today, included Mortara’s Mahindra which had suffered from a technical issue that hadn’t allowed him to get any track time. It was a long night for the engineers of the Indian team, but ultimately the Italian-Swiss is out on track.

After the first set of attempts, Vergne leads again with a 1:19.404s from the two Porsche drivers. The ERT of Sergio Sette Camara comes to a stop on track, but the Brazilian driver is able to bring it off the racing line.

Dennis runs wide off track at the same spot where a number of his colleagues yesterday had encountered troubles, mentioning lock up around T5 and T9.

Ten minutes into the session, Buemi leads with a 1:19.120s from the McLaren duo of Bird and Hughes, as the first red flag of the racing weekend is issued to remove Sette Camara’s car.

The session resumed with fifteen minutes on the clock as the session has been extended for 5 minutes. Buemi’s teammate Frijns cycles at the lead, building on the consistently fast lap.

Vergne takes back his top spot with a 1:17.456s lap, faster than his FP1 leading time from yesterday afternoon. On the other hand, Dennis’s troubles continue as he is still in P21, ahead of only Sette Camara who is not lapping.

At the end of the session Cassidy ran wide off track, ending up in the grass and hitting the wall. Vergne tops the timesheets, followed by Hughes and Buemi. It was a quiet session, apart from ERT’s troubles, with a lot of track time for all teams and drivers. Tune in in a couple of hours for Qualifying!
