Vandoorne Leads the Opening Session in Leg 1 of the Berlin ePrix Doubleheader
DS Penske’s Stoffel Vandoorne set the early pace in Free Practice 1 (FP1) in leg 1 at the SABIC Berlin E-Prix. The reigning World Champion put down a 1m05.803s at the Tempelhof Airport circuit today ahead of FP2 that is set to take place early morning EST. The split between the top 9 cars on grid was only 0.3s which suggests the field is wide open in terms of who will lead into FP2 and qualifying thereafter. The session however did not come without incident.
The Maserati MSG Racing of Edoardo Mortara crashed into the barriers which led to a yellow flag at the ten minute mark in FP1. Mortara appears to have escaped the incident without injury and should be good to head back out for FP2. Robin Frijns also had a small spin out in his ABT CUPRA. You can find full FP1 results below.
