Richard Verschoor closer to the lead on Hockenheim
Yifei Ye (Josef Kaufmann Racing) led the way on day two of the Formula Renault Eurocup collective tests at Hockenheim. With a lap of 1:36.852s this morning, the Chinese driver finished ahead of team mate Richard Verschoor (Josef Kaufmann Racing) and Christian Lundgaard (MP Motorsport).
In posting the best afternoon time, the Dane from the Renault Sport Academy was the quickest rookie on the day.
The 28 drivers entered in the Formula Renault Eurocup had five and a half hours of track time on the circuit that will host the F1 German Grand Prix.
In the morning, only Yifei Ye improved upon the benchmark time that he set yesterday. His lap of 1:36.852s saw him get the better of Richard Verschoor and the two members of the Renault Sport Academy, Christian Lundgaard and Max Fewtrell (R-ace GP). Lorenzo Colombo (JD Motorsport) rounded out the top five.
Slightly under the weather, Yifei Ye didn’t return to the track in the afternoon that was dominated by race simulations. Long-time leader, Christian Lundgaard then had battle against Lorenzo Colombo and Richard Verschoor to retake the top spot on the timesheet with a lap of 1:37.085s. At the end of a session prematurely interrupted by Frank Bird (Tech 1 Racing), the Dane was followed by Lorenzo Colombo and the R-ace GP trio of Logan Sargeant, Max Fewtrell and Victor Martins.Tags: Formula Renault 2.0, Formula Renault Eurocup, Formula Renault NEC, Hockenheim, Hockenheimring, Josef Kaufmann Racing
