NIO Formula E Team driver Oliver Turvey was fastest on the third and final day of official pre-season testing in Valencia.
Turvey was also the quickest driver on the first day, before the extra chicane was added to the track. On Thursday he recorded a lap of 1m21.822s, which was a tenth quicker than Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler’s Daniel Abt, while Dragon Racing driver Jerome D’Ambrosio topped the afternoon session. His time was good enough for sixth overall.
The morning session was red flagged twice. First incident was caused by Venturi’s Edoardo Mortara who stopped on the track while Techeetah’s Jean-Eric Vergne made contact with the barrier. In the late afternoon Andre Lotterer raised another red flag when he spun with his Venturi. The organisation decided to expand the series with five minutes in order to allow drivers to set another quick lap.
