Andre Lotterer took DS Techeetah to the top of the time sheets in Friday afternoon’s second and final Free Practice session ahead of the the Berlin E-Prix.

The German, who sits second in the championship standings, posted a best lap time of 1:07.401 late in the 30-minute session to come out on top in his DS E-Tense FE19.

It compared to his teammate and points leader Jean-Eric Vergne who could only manage to place 17th, with a personal best lap over a second off the pace.

Edoardo Mortara was second-quickest for the second consecutive session, running 0.284 seconds down in his Venturi car, while Alexander Sims placed third.

Sebastien Buemi was fourth quickest, ahead of FP1 pacesetter Mitch Evans in fifth for Panasonic Jaguar Racing.

The whole session ran green, again with no major incidents on the fairly wide and forgiving Tempelhof circuit.

Qualifying will get underway at 8:45 a.m. local time (2:45 a.m. EDT) on Saturday, followed by the race at 1 p.m. (7 a.m. EDT).
