The 2020 Berlin eTrophy Race 5, formally known as the 2020 Berlin Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy Series Race 5, was the eighth race of the 2019/20 Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy Series, staged at the Tempelhofring in Berlin, Brandenburg, Germany, on 9 August 2020.[1] The race, which was the second eTrophy race of the day to be staged, would see Simon Evans secure victory from the back of the grid.[2]

The grid for the final race around the standard, anti-clockwise Tempelhofring circuit, would be based on the reversal of the field's qualifying positions.[3] As a result Paul Spooner would start the race from pole position in his Pro-Am car, while title protagonists Sérgio Jimenez and Evans started from eleventh and tenth respectively.[3]

The start of the race saw Spooner ease off the grid to secure the lead, with Adalberto Baptista unable to challenge for the lead into turn one.[2] Behind, Fahad Algosaibi would duel with Takuma Aoki for third, while Evans and Jimenez remained at the back of the pack.[2]

The early laps saw Gregory Segers move to the front of the field, elbowing his way up from sixth through to the lead, a double move on Baptista and Spooner at the final corner earning him the lead, only for Spooner to retaliate on the exit and re-secure the lead.[2] Further back, meanwhile, Nick Foster was an early retirement with an issue, while Evans and Jimenez were steadily climbing up the field.[2]

Indeed, within a few laps both Jimenez and Evans would break into the top five, with Jimenez leading his title rival up the order.[2] Attack Mode would aid their rapid rise up the order, with Jimenez using the boost to breeze past Segers for second, while Evans muscled his way past Aoki, with Alice Powell following him through.[2]

Jimenez's charge continued, and by the halfway point in the race the #10 Jaguar was in the lead, a forceful lunge down the inside of Spooner into turn nine carrying him through.[2] With that Jimenez set about building a small lead, with Evans requiring a couple more laps to pass the lead Pro-Am car before clawing his way back onto Jimenez's tail.[2]

Onto the final lap and Evans was within striking distance of Jimenez, although the New Zealander held fire until the run out of turn four to turn six.[2] There, Evans would manage to run around the outside of Jimenez before cutting across the nose of his title rival on the brakes for the hairpin to secure the lead, with Jimenez arming his second AM on the final tour, but too late to respond.[2]

With that the race was run, with Evans sweeping across the line to secure victory for the second time in a little over four hours, a second clear of Jimenez.[2] Behind, Cacá Bueno completed his charge from the back to complete the podium ahead of Segers, while Fahad Algosaibi made it five wins in five Berlin races to secure the Pro-Am title with two races to spare.[2]

Background

With only a few hours passing between the 2020 Berlin eTrophy Race 4 and the second race of the day, there would be no modifications made to either the Tempelhofring or the entry list.[1] However, there would be a change to the grid for the race, with the positions from qualifying for the fourth Berlin race reversed to produce the starting grid for the fifth race.[2]

Evans Endeavours

The fight for the Championship remained in Sérgio Jimenez's control with three races to go, the Brazilian ending the first eTrophy race of the day with 121 points to his credit. That translated into a thirteen point lead over Simon Evans in second, the New Zealander having become the second Pro driver to break the 100 point barrier with his victory. Behind Cacá Bueno had just remained within mathematical contention for the crown, although he would have to win all three races, and see Jimenez and Evans both fail to score in all three.

In Pro-Am Fahad Algosaibi had all but sewn up the Championship, with the Saudi Arabian racer able to claim the title if he scored in any of the three remaining races, given the lack of entries. Indeed, only Adalberto Baptista could deny Algosaibi the crown, but only if he claimed victory in each of the three races, and Algosaibi failed to score. The Brazilian racer was hence realistically looking at a fight for second with Paul Spooner, with those two separated by fifteen points.
