BMW’s Max Guenther blasts to practice benchmark in Berlin

BMW i Andretti Motorsport’s Max Guenther posted a stunning time in Practice 3 ahead of qualifying for the final round of the 2019/20 ABB FIA Formula E season, a quarter of-a-second up on next best Antonio Felix da Costa (DS Techeetah).

After a day’s running on the New Berlin Tempelhof Circuit on Wednesday, plenty of rubber had been laid down in all the right places, and Guenther’s 1:15.091 was some 0.6 seconds quicker than any time we saw yesterday.
