Buemi closes with record-breaking pre-season Formula E


In a preseason in which Jean-Eric Vergne has dropped the
record for Donington in a couple of occasions, the only possible closure was a
new quick log of a Formula E on the track british. And so it has been. Sébastien
Buemi has dominated the final day of official test
of the category before
debut of the ‘Season Three’ in the ePrix of Hong Kong and has done so with a
record 1:28.910
, dropping almost three-tenths the time set by Verne
Tuesday, and assumes the above-mentioned new track record.

What is certain is that the last day of testing has had a
the protagonist is at the margin of the own Buemi and is no other than the Renault Z. E. 16. The
single-seater French has been singled out as the team to beat not only by the
best time of Buemi or by the fact that the domain of the swiss in the two sessions
today, but because the pilots who compete with the single-seater French have
featuring a genuine offensive in the day of today. As is clear from the
second time’s own Jean-Eric Vergne
(Techeetah) and the third record more
fast Nico Prost (Renault and.Dams).

Without improvement in times of Buemi and Vergne in the session
evening -after dominating the morning- the rider who has been able to bring
the Renault Z. E. 16 has been Sam Bird
. The british pilot of DS Virgin has
finished third at 372 milliseconds of the time of reference, exceeding that yes
for a tenth Loïc Duval and his Penske. Not osbtante, the association of Faraday
Future and Dragon Racing, it seems that little by little are giving their fruits
and the
progression of its pilots, in their time, it has become evident with the result of
Duval, but also with the seventh-placed Jerome D’ambrosio.


Between the two pilots of the team Faraday Future Dragon
Racing has placed Daniel Abt
. The German pilot has been the best
representative of the team ABT Schaeffler Audi Sport in a day a so
discreet for the German team, although it is true that Abt and Di Grassi have
dedicated several sections of the day to do runs longer than
usual. A work which however has been altered in the last instance
when Lucas Di Grassi suffered a small accident. At that time the brazilian
was ninth ahead of Ma Qing Hua.

Just ahead of the brazilian has finished José María ‘Pechito’ Lopez, each time more comfortable in the DSV-02 in what is being his return to single-seaters after several seasons in the bosom of the World of passenger Cars.A good balance in any case for the argentinian driver at least in comparison with the other debutantes, even if the end result of Felix Rosenqvist can invite to the hope. Also rookie, but in terms of equipment, Jaguar Racing is taking a start complicated in his immersion in the Formula E and the british manufacturer has closed the test with cold sensations to keep your best car-to-1.1 seconds of the head.
