Television commentators Jack Nicholls and Dario Franchitti reported visibility issues from their commentary box within minutes of the session’s beginning.

Jaguar announce lineup for Marrakesh FE rookie test

  Jaguar announce lineup for Marrakesh FE rookie test Former Formula 1 driver Paul di Resta and 2017 Formula V8 3.5 champion Pietro Fittipaldi will drive Jaguar’s Formula E car at the rookie test in Marrakesh. The test is set to take place on Jan 14, the day after the Marrakesh ePrix, and is limited to drivers who don’t have an e-license Di Resta, who filled in for Felipe Massa at Williams for the Hungarian Grand Prix this year, will travel to Morocco after testing for the Daytona 24 Hours in Florida, USA. “It is a perfect opportunity, at the right time of year to have a go,” Di Resta said. “It will be an intensive day of testing in Marrakech but I’m sure I can give some positive feedback to the team.” The chance for Fittipaldi comes after his successful season in Formula V8 3.5, where he took six wins and won the championship ahead of Matevos Isaakyan. Fittipaldi says that he has taken an interest to FE since the series first tested at Donington, saying, “I am really looking forward to driving the car and with Jaguar’s heritage in racing it is a very special privilege.

It was Audi Sport Abt Shaeffler who were, once again, at the top of the timesheets in the last practice session ahead of Qualifying here in Marrakesh , after Daniel Abt set a new record time of 1:19.760. I'm very happy with the runs in free practice , said Lopez.

Daniel Abt leads Audi 1- 2 in FP 2 in Marrakesh . Alex Lynn was the lead DS Virgin Racing driver in sixth place after championship leader Sam Bird struggled for pace in the session, finishing outside the top ten in 12th fastest.

The reigning champion’s time was beaten almost immediately by Antonio Felix da Costa, who set a 1m21.260 lap-time.

Venturi was plagued with issues at the start of the session, claiming to have a problem with its software with all four cars. However they were quick to rectify this, not losing too much practice time.

Felix Rosenqvist had a lock-up five minutes into the session, going down an escape road and bringing out the yellow flags, but he was able to spin the car back around to continue.

Da Costa also had a nasty moment which could have brought his session to an early end, as the MS Amlin Andretti driver almost lost the rear end of the car, but he managed to catch it at the last second and remained on track.

Jaguar’s Nelson Piquet Jr had a brush with the barrier, which resulted in him losing his right rear wheel cover soon after.

As the session progressed the fog became much heavier, with drivers complaining of visibility issues and foggy visors.

The session ended with Abt topping the session, taking first place from his team-mate di Grassi in the closing stages, leaving the Brazilian to complete an Audi top two. Sébastien Buemi ended up third overall for Renault e.Dams, with the Mitch Evans and Piquet Jr showing great pace as they finished fourth and fifth respectively.
