On day two of the official Formula E pre-season test at Valencia (Spain), Team Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler completed a total of 142 laps with the new Audi e-tron FE04 – and, like the day before, without any issues to speak of. Lucas di Grassi (1m 22.215s) and Daniel Abt (1m 22.256s) achieved almost identical lap times. Abt in the morning session, di Grassi in the afternoon.
“Conditions with the heat today were similar to those on day one,” said Team Principal Allan McNish. “Due to the second chicane on the start-finish straight, we had to recalculate the efficiency systems. Lucas and Daniel were among the fastest again today. Now we need to spend some time thinking and then extract the maximum from the last test day on Thursday.”
“It was a productive day,” Lucas di Grassi agreed. “I was second-fastest in the afternoon. Tomorrow we’re having a day with meetings and data analyses before the final test day on Thursday before the season starts in Hong Kong.”
“Today we again tried to go through our program and to get a better understanding of the car,” said Daniel Abt. “We completed also a number of long runs and didn’t shoot for the fastest times. There were no issues, the car is in one piece. Now we have plenty of data to analyze for day three.”
Following a one-day break, two more test sessions are scheduled for Thursday from 9 to 12 AM and from 2 to 5 PM.
