Edoardo Mortara (ROKiT Venturi Racing) headed the way with the weekend's fastest time - a 1m21.019s - in Free Practice 3 ahead of the Hana Bank Seoul E-Prix Round 16.
Mortara's title charge ended in disappointment with a puncture in Round 15, but the Venturi driver is looking to support the team's bid to outstrip Mercedes-EQ in the Teams' standings, with that race far from over. The Swiss pipped Antonio Felix da Costa (DS TECHEETAH) and Jake Dennis (Avalanche Andretti) followed up fourth in the opener here yesterday with the third quickest time here.
Mitch Evans' day starts well with the fourth-fastest time. He needs score 21 more points than Stoffel Vandoorne (Mercedes-EQ) to win the title, on countback by virtue of winning more races - more than any other driver, in fact, with four for the season after that Round 15 win. Vandoorne rounded sixth.
Sunday morning brought a dry track surface in Seoul for the first time since practice on Saturday morning after a wet qualifying and race one. A bit of recalibration for the drivers and engineers, then, and that was on show with a series of lockups - Robin Frijns complaining of rear, then front lockups -and some near misses with the barriers.
Sacha Fenestraz made his bow in Formula E in place of Antonio Giovinazzi at DRAGON / PENSKE AUTOSPORT, with the Italian suffering a hand injury in Saturday's race.
The votes for FANBOOST ahead of Round 16 currently sees centurion and Formula E's first driver to reach 1,000 points - Lucas di Grassi - head the way. Standings leader Stoffel Vandoorne (Mercedes-EQ) is also in line for a boost, as are Edoardo Mortara (ROKiT Venturi Racing) and Vandoorn'es closest title rival Mitch Evans.Season 6 champion Antonio Felix da Costa (DS TECHEETAH) is also set for a 30kW bonus as it stands.
Voting is open until five minutes into Round 16, which gives you plenty of time to influence the race before we go green in Seoul at 16:00 local time.
Coverage of qualifying ahead of the Hana Bank Seoul E-Prix Round 16 is to come at 11:40 with the race itself at 16:00. In the meantime, catch up with the full preview.
