Robert Shwartzman dominates on the Hankook iON Race at the Rookie Test in Berlin

On the Monday after the Berlin E-Prix, the Formula E rookies were able to take their place at the wheel of the Gen3 cars for the second time this season. Two three-hour sessions at Tempelhof Airport gave the youngsters plenty of opportunity to test the car and take full advantage of the performance of the Hankook iON Race. Israeli Robert Shwartzman from the DS Penske team was the top performer. The reserve driver for Ferrari in Formula 1 dominated and set the fastest time in both sessions.
