Daniel Abt closes the third day of the tests to the front


The Formula And closed its first session of test with a third day of evidence marked by the times rains that slowed down the pace of work of the equipment and also the evolution of the timesheets faster. All in all, Daniel Abt ended the day at the front of the standings after scoring a time of 1:30.073 in the morning session, a record which however remained almost half a second of the track record marked by Jean-Eric Vergne in the previous day. Second just for his part Nick Heidfeld with the Mahindra M3 Electro of the indian team.

After two days with weather favorable despite the wind, the rain has made its appearance at Donington Park, which has prevented the equipment work normally. However, during various times of the day the riders have found a dry track which has allowed roll it about in the times of the opening day of the test, in addition to accumulate experience with the new cars on wet asphalt. On the opposite side of the coin, Maro Engel and Nico Prost caused paths for red flags when you get to the gravel with the cars of the Venturi and Renault and.Dams.

despite this little interruption, Nico Prost ended with the
fourth best time of the day, just behind Jean-Eric Vergne
, both
driving a Renault Z. E 16 that comes out of these tests, with the record of the
track, and possibly as the car to beat, or at least that is what
it seems to transmit after these first three days of the test. The top five
for his part, has closed Lucas Di Grassi
with the other’s car
team ABT Schaeffler Audi, closing the day with a time 179
thousandths slower than his teammate Daniel Abt.


Good day
in the office for the guys from Andretti Formula E
, any time you have
managed to sneak one of their cars within the first ten
classified for the first time in the test. Has been of the hand of António
Felix Da Costa. The Portuguese is slowly gaining control
a delicate Andretti ATEC-02 and that it is translating at times
each time faster, which has even been served to overcome on the
wet asphalt to drivers like Sébastien Buemi and Sam Bird
, two of the
great protagonists of the ‘Season Two’.

Neither has it been a bad day for the debutants. Dean
Stoneman completed 44 laps on his debut in Formula E
at the controls of the NextEV
TCR Formula 002, while five laps less came to perform Harry
Tincknell, fourth pilot tested for Jaguar Racing during these tests. By the
time, the british manufacturer has gone quite unnoticed during this
the first session of testing, and although Adam Carroll seems to have a role more
important, it is difficult to determine which pilot between Evans, Lynn and Tincknell has fulfilled better the expectations of Jaguar.
