Oliver Rowland was seventh in the second Nissan ahead of Alex Lynn in the Mahindra in eighth. Maximilian Gunther who topped the opening practice session finished in ninth ahead of Neel Jani in the Porsche who has had two strong practice sessions in what could be his last couple of races with the team.
