Day two and another round of London E Prix! After an electrifying race yesterday, after which Nyck De Vries was handed in a 5s penalty, promoting the championship contender Evans to P5. 

Evans is currently 24 points behind Stoffel Vandoorne in P1, so the game is still very much on. Just one win for Evans, and a DNF for Vandoorne, and the championship can switch. How will it look like after today’s round? Let’s find out! 

Group Stage 

Group A consisted of Vandoorne, Mortara, Da Costa, De Vries, Dennis, Lotterer, Askew, Rowland, Gunther and Sette Camara. All of the drivers went out on track almost immediately. Sette Camara possibly clipped the wall in turn 22 on the way to the start finish straight. 8 minutes before the end of this stage, the four drivers who would go into the next stage were: Sette Camara, Askew, Gunther and Dennis. 

Dennis goes fastest, followed by Bird on P2, Askew and Vandoorne. The Avalanche Andretti are really strong in London, and as mentioned during the conference the day before, Dennis believes its thanks to the fact that their strong is very strong mechanically. Well, they’re definitely proving the point so far. 5 minutes before the end, everyone went back to the pits. 

2.5 minutes before the end of the session everyone went back on track again, for the final push. 

Mortara seems to be in trouble as he’s not able to push hard enough, and doesn’t make it through to the duels. In a crazy turnover, Vandoorne is out in group stage! That is definitely not great when it comes to the championship fight. Avalanche are proving their strength, with both of the drivers advancing into the next stage. 

The four drivers who made it to the duels are Dennis, Da Costa, De Vries and Askew. 

Group B consisted of Evans, Vergne, Frijns, Di Grassi, Wehrlein, Cassidy, Buemi, sims, Turvey, Ticktum and Giovinazzi. The light goes green and the drivers make their way onto the track. Giovinazzi was the first driver to get out, and he’ll be the first to set a proper time. The time he sets 1:14.644s. Behind him were Wehrlein, Sims and Di Grassi. Evans doesn’t seem to improve, which puts him in a difficult position if Vandoorne has already handed him an easier job today. At that stage, the drivers who were advancing further were: Di Grassi, Cassidy, Vergne and Wehrlein. Everyone went back into the pits.

It’s 3 minutes before the end and everyone makes it out to the track again. Again, in a surprising turn of events, Evans and Vergne are out! The drivers that make it to the duels are: Di Grassi, Giovinazzi, Cassidy and Buemi.
