Mercedes’ Nyck De Vries tops first session of Formula E Season 7 in Diriyah

Mercedes-EQ’s Nyck de Vries set the pace in the first session ahead of the 2021 Diriyah E-Prix, as the most competitive grid in motorsport ramped up preparations for the opening event of Formula E’s first season as an FIA World Championship. Nyck de Vries fired his Silver Arrow 02 to the top of the times in the first session of Season 7 with a late flying lap, as teams worked to get their heads around the Riyadh Street Circuit under the floodlights ahead of Formula E’s first night races on Friday and Saturday. For all the talk of lap times here, though, they aren’t always the goal in practice. After six months out of the car Formula E’s first night race finally here, and there’s plenty for drivers and their engineers to think about before Practice 2 at 14:00 tomorrow, followed by qualifying from 16:00 and the 2021 Diriyah E-Prix at 20:03 local time.
