The 2020 Berlin eTrophy Race 2, formally known as the 2020 Berlin Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy Series Race 2, was the fifth race of the 2019/20 Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy Series, staged on the reversed Tempelhofring circuit in Berlin, Brandenburg, Germany, on 6 August 2020.[1] The race would see Sérgio Jimenez secure victory, having fought his way past title rival Simon Evans during the race.[2]

Qualifying proved to be a battle of Brazil for the second race in succession, with Cacá Bueno again defeating teammate Jimenez to pole, albeit this time by only a tenth of a second.[3] The next three slots on the grid were taken by their fellow Pro drivers, Evans starting from fourth, while Oliver Webb secured sixth in the Guest car ahead of eighth placed Fahad Algosaibi, the first of the three Pro-Am drivers.[3]

The start of the race saw Bueno once again convert pole position into an unopposed lead, while behind teammate Jimenez again found himself having to defend from Nick Foster.[2] Foster hence had to attack the #10 Jaguar Brazil driver around the outside of the first corner, although a robust move from Jimenez kept the Brazilian racer in second.[2]

The early laps saw the two Jaguar Brazil cars establish a small lead, while Foster worked to keep Evans at bay in the fight for third.[2] Ultimately Evans would have to wait until Attack Mode came online for him to get ahead of the #9 Jaguar China Racing, powering past down the back straight with his extra power.[2]

Attack Mode would play a pivotal role in the outcome of the race, with Jimenez initially appearing to have lost out, dropping behind Foster.[2] Indeed, Foster was less than keen to let the driver who had squeezed him out at the start get past, with the pair making contact as Jimenez tried to force his way around the outside of the #9 car down the start/finish straight and into turn one.[2]

Regardless of that contact, however, Jimenez was through, and half a lap later the Brazilian racer was firing the #10 car down the inside of title rival Evans for second.[2] That left him on the back of teammate Bueno as his AM boost ran out, only for Bueno to inadvertently surrender the lead when he tried to arm AM, but crucially missed the markers.[2]

Bueno dropped to third as a result of his error, while Evans would use his second AM boost to pass Jimenez, passing the defending Champion as Jimenez armed his AM a lap later.[2] Jimenez would, however, get the benefit of the boost for a minute after Evans' faded, and duly used it to reclaim the lead from his title rival on the exit of turn two in the closing stages.[2]

With that the race was run, with Jimenez securing victory three seconds clear of Evans in second, who had a wound up Bueno stalking him as they crossed the line.[2] Behind them, Guest driver Webb would claim fastest lap and fourth place after overcoming Foster late on, while Fahad Algosaibi spent the race sat behind Alice Powell, but still secured the honours in the Pro-Am class.[2]

Background

There were no changes made to the reversed Tempelhofring overnight for the Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy's second race of the weekend, with the entry list similarly unchanged.[1]

The Fourth Fight

In the Pro Championship it was still Sérgio Jimenez who ended the fourth race still at the head of the Championship, although his advantage had been cut by his main challenger. Simon Evans was the defending Champion's closest rival, having moved to within two of the Brazilian ace, while behind victory for Cacá Bueno had moved the Brazilian racer to within five points of Alice Powell in third.

In the Pro-Am Championship Fahad Algosaibi had finally overhauled the absent Yaqi Zhang to top the table, the Saudi Arabian racer having moved fourteen clear of the Chinese racer who was not expected to compete for the rest of the season. Behind, Adalberto Baptista had moved into third, ahead of the similarly absent Chao Sun and Mashhur Bal Hejaila, while Paul Spooner had settled into sixth after his debut.

Standings

Victory for Sérgio Jimenez saw the Brazilian racer's lead in the Championship grow to seven points with half the season completed, Simon Evans having just kept pace with his second place in Berlin. Behind, Cacá Bueno had overhauled Alice Powell to secure third, moving two ahead of the British racer, while Powell herself was sixteen ahead of Nick Foster in fifth.

In the Pro-Am field a third straight victory for Fahad Algosaibi had left the Saudi Arabian racer in command of the title hunt, 35 points clear of his closest challenger. That challenger was the absent Yaqi Zhang, who was the only other winner in Pro-Am in 2019/20, who was still a point ahead of Adalberto Baptista in third, the next highest placed active driver. Chao Sun was next up in fourth, while Paul Spooner rounded out the top five, level with the Chinese racer.
