Abt leads edges team-mate di Grassi to lead FP2 in Marrakesh

Written by  Jan 13, 2018

It was Audi Sport Abt Shaeffler who were, once again, at the top of the timesheets in the last practice session ahead of Qualifying here in Marrakesh, after Daniel Abt set a new record time of 1:19.760.

Just behind Abt was teammate and reigning champion Lucas di Grassi with a time of 1:19.898.

Despite a desert mist descending for the second practice, which limited visibility, a total of 13 drivers trumped last years lap record of 1:20.599.

Close behind the Audi drivers was last year's winner and Renault e.dams driver Sebastien Buemi (1:19.936), followed by Panasonic Jaguar Racing's Mitch Evans (1:20.001) and Nelson Piquet Jn. (1:20.115)

Bringing the pace after a disappointing race in Hong Kong was familiar face Jose Maria Lopez for Dragon, who finished in seventh place with a time of 1:20.384.

"It's good to be back. I'm very happy with the runs in free practice, said Lopez. I'm confident that the car is working fine. It's early and I know the team struggled in Hong Kong but we'll see what happens," said Lopez with a confident smile.
