Felipe Drugovich is once again the fastest rookie on the Hankook iON Race

Aston Martin’s junior Formula 1 driver Felipe Drugovich was the fastest driver at the official Rookie Test, which followed the Berlin E-Prix, as he enjoyed a successful first outing in Formula E. The Brazilian was back at the wheel of the Maserati Tipo Folgore for the special free practice session for rookies in Rome, where he once again demonstrated his huge talent and top handling skills with the Hankook iON Race. The 23-year-old completed the 3.385-kilometre lap of the street circuit in the Italian capital in a time of 1:43.736 minutes, making him the top rookie for the second time in Season 9.
