Andretti’s Norman Nato sets the pace ahead of Diriyah Qualifying

Nato and his teammate Jake Dennis looked quick ahead of qualifying later today. Andretti’s Norman Nato topped the timesheets in the second Free Practice session, as the drivers took to the epic Diriyah track in the midday sun. Sebastien Buemi had a better second practice and slipped into fourth, as his car came to a halt during yesterday’s session forcing the team to replace his battery overnight. The first session of race day was very different to what we’ll see when it’s time for lights out later, as track temperatures reached 35°C. Track evolution continues to be rapid here, as the dirt and dust from the desert is kicked up by the grid as they fly around this 2.49km circuit. The reigning champ managed to finish second here in both races last season, but will be wanting the win after a slightly disappointing start in Mexico City where he finished ninth. Track evolution is fast here, and they ended up finishing 18th and 20th respectively. Sebastien Buemi and Envision had a better session, as the Season 2 champ came to a standstill last night midway through FP1.
