The 2020 Berlin eTrophy Race 7, formally known as the 2020 Berlin Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy Series Race 7 was the tenth and final race of the 2019/20 Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy Series, staged at the Tempelhofer Park circuit in Berlin, Brandenburg, Germany, on 13 August 2020.[1] The race, which was the twentieth and final eTrophy race to be staged, would see Sérgio Jimenez and Simon Evans duel for the Championship title, having started the day just three points apart.[2]

First blood in qualifying would go to Evans, who would secure second on the grid ahead of Jimenez, with the Brazilian racer in third.[3] Fortunately for Jimenez the bonus point for pole would instead go to his teammate Cacá Bueno, while in Pro-Am there was no stopping Fahad Algosaibi from taking his seventh pole in a row, the Saudi Arabian racer starting from eighth overall.[3]

The start of the race saw Bueno ease away from pole position to secure the lead, while Evans swept across from second to block Jimenez.[2] That move opened the door for fourth placed Nick Foster to challenge around the outside of turn one, the top three tucking into line behind each other, with the #9 China Racing car getting alongside Evans through the sweeping left-hander.[2]

Ultimately Foster would start to run out of grip, meaning Evans was able to hold onto second as Foster dropped alongside Jimenez.[2] The Brazilian racer, knowing the title was on the line, would take a robust measure to keep Foster at bay, running the #9 car towards the outside wall entering turns 2/3 forcing Foster to check up on the brakes and drop back.[2]

With that the race quickly settled, with Evans hounding Buenos for the lead, while Jimenez paced them in third, unable to match their pace.[2] Elsewhere, Pro-Am Champion Algosaibi found himself fighting with the two Guest entries at the back of the field, with Sven Förster‏ able to pass the Saudi Arabian racer after Algosaibi armed Attack Mode.[2]

AM would also come into play at the head of the field, with Evans able to sweep past Bueno when the Brazilian racer armed the system in #0 car for the first time.[2] Bueno would, however, manage to instantly retaliate a dive back past the #99 car with ease into turn nine, with Evans opting against making an issue of the position.[2]

With that the race, and the Championship, was effectively over, for Bueno would be unable to drop Evans back into the sights of teammate Jimenez, who simply lacked the pace of the lead duo.[2] As a result Bueno would secure the final ever eTrophy race victory ahead of Evans, with second place enough to give the New Zealander the Pro Championship title for 2019/20.[2] Jimenez relinquished his crown with a third place finish, one point behind Evans, while the Pro-Am honours went to Adalberto Baptista after Paul Spooner retired.[2]

Background

There were no further changes made to the modified Tempelhofer Park version of the Tempelhofring in Berlin, Germany, as the eTrophy held its final ever race.[1] Likewise, there would be no modifications to the entry list, with Sven Förster‏ and Jessica Hawkins remaining in the two Guest entries for the finale.[4]

Finale Fighting

Victory for Simon Evans in the penultimate race would setup a duel for the title in the final race, with the New Zealander just three points behind Championship leader Sérgio Jimenez. Various permutations could hand either driver the crown, although should both finish the final race in the top four, then the higher placed driver would take the title. Behind, meanwhile, Cacá Bueno had already secured third, while Alice Powell was set to finish fourth ahead of Nick Foster.

In the Pro-Am Championship Fahad Algosaibi had already wrapped up the title, with the Saudi Arabian ace having extended his lead to 66 points with a race to go. Behind Paul Spooner had moved to within two points of Adalberto Baptista in the fight for second, meaning whomever finished the final race ahead of the other would secure the runner-up spot in the Pro-Am field.
