London Formula E: Sebastien Buemi leads Sunday practice

Sebastien Buemi ended up fastest over the two sessions of free practice for Sunday's Formula E Championship finale in London

London Formula E: Sebastien Buemi leads Sunday practice

The e.dams driver, who moved to within five points of the championship lead with a race victory on Saturday, set the pace around the 1.81-mile track in Battersea Park with a 1m23.642s set in the second session.

That put him more than two tenths clear of Dragon Racing's Loic Duval, who was quickest in the opening session on a 1m23.642s.

Buemi had been second to Duval in the 45-minute opening session before the positions reversed in the following 30-minute period.

Formula E newcomer Oliver Turvey was third fastest for Team China Racing with a 1m23.909s.

Lucas di Grassi and Nelson Piquet Jr, who lie first and third in the points respectively, ended up fourth and sixth fastest.

Resurfacing at the first corner means the circuit has returned to its original configuration for the second half of the Battersea double-header.
