2019 Formula E: Mortara Takes First Formula E Victory In Hong Kong After Bird Penalty


2019 HKT HONG KONG E-PRIX (RD 5)
RACE RE-CAP
Edoardo Mortara inherited his first-ever Formula E victory in Hong Kong after Sam Bird was handed a time penalty for causing a collision with Andre Lotterer on the penultimate lap.

Bird and Lotterer were locked in a race-long duel, with seconds separating the pair throughout the duration of the entire E-Prix. As the clock counted down, Bird made a lunge for the lead into Turn 2 and made contact with the rear of Lotterer.

Despite the hit from behind Lotterer held position and managed to keep Bird at bay, but Lotterer soon started to slow after suffering a puncture from the earlier contact - leaving him limping home and eventually coming to a stop out on track.

This allowed Bird to swoop in front and take the chequered flag. However, Bird was later denied his second victory of the season after being issued with a five-second penalty - dropping him to sixth position.

Abb FIA Formula E Championship To Bring Racing Back To The UK In London For Season Six


Formula E is set to bring electric racing back to the UK, with a unique track winding its way through the Royal Docks and ExCeL London in summer 2020 - for season six of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship.

British fans of Formula E and Londoners will once again be able to witness racing on the streets of the capital, as the fully-electric cars tackle the 2.4km clockwise circuit and line-up on the starting grid located inside ExCeL.

Consisting of 23 corners, the track layout will see the drivers running along the waterfront for the season finale double-header - the final two rounds of the voestalpine European races on July 25 & 26, 2020 - subject to circuit homologation and approval of the FIA World Motor Sport Council.

Di Grassi Snatches Win From Wehrlein With Frantic Finish In Mexico City


2019 CBMM NIOBIUM MEXICO CITY E-PRIX (RD 4) RACE RE-CAP

Lucas di Grassi stole victory from under the nose of Pascal Wehrlein in a sensational sprint to the finish line on the final lap in Mexico City.

Wehrlein, who led the entirety of the E-Prix and was on course for his first-ever victory in Formula E, ran out of energy exiting the final corner and started to slow only metres from the chequered flag.

With a gaggle of cars in hot pursuit, this opened the door for di Grassi to snatch the win away from Wehrlein in front of a sell-out crowd of magnificent Mexican fans.

Leading away from Julius Baer pole position, Wehrlein held station ahead of Oliver Rowland in the opening phase of the race - with the Nissan e.dams driver making up two places with an audacious attempt up the inside of di Grassi and Felipe Massa into Turn 1.

2019 ANTOFAGASTA MINERALS SANTIAGO E-PRIX (RD 3)

RACE RE-CAP

Sam Bird handled the heat under pressure from Pascal Wehrlein to win his first race of the season in the sweltering Santiago sunshine.

With Wehrlein hot on his heels in the closing stages of the warmest Formula E race on record, Bird held his nerve with a peerless performance around the perimeter roads of Parque O’Higgins in the centre of the Chilean capital.

Bird had to keep a close eye on his mirrors with both drivers on alternative ATTACK MODE strategies. Without any activations left, Bird found himself vulnerable from behind - as Wehrlein saved his final burst of energy in a bid to vault ahead with only minutes to spare.

Champion Vergne Closes Season In Style With Audi Securing Team Title In New York


Jean-Eric Vergne picked up his fourth win of the season at the final race of the 2017/18 ABB FIA Formula E Championship in New York to round-off a sensational day of sport for the French nation.

The TECHEETAH driver - and newly-crowned Formula E champion - fended off pressure from the outgoing title-winner Lucas di Grassi in a fight to the flag reminiscent of the nail-biting finish from earlier this season in Punta del Este.

The pair were nose-to-tail for the majority of the second phase of the race, with di Grassi eventually weighing-up the risk and settling for second place alongside his team-mate Daniel Abt who finished third. The double podium finish and di Grassi’s seventh in as many races sealed the teams’ title for Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler.

Di Grassi Takes Victory In New York As Vergne Clinches Abb FIA Formula E Championship


Lucas di Grassi took his second consecutive win of the season in New York, as Jean-Eric Vergne fought through the field to move out of reach of title rival Sam Bird and secure the ABB FIA Formula E Championship with one round to spare.

Both title contenders started on the back foot after a difficult qualifying session, but Vergne drove a resilient race from the back row of the grid to fifth position - beating Bird and extending his lead to 31-points and clinching the Formula E crown regardless of the result tomorrow.

After being excluded from qualifying due to technical infringement, it looked like the championship would go down to the wire once more. However, Vergne calmly and carefully moved his way up the order leaving Bird defenceless - becoming the fourth different champion in as many seasons.

Williams Advanced Engineering were instrumental in getting Formula E off the ground, building and producing a bespoke battery in under a year.

2018 Formula E: Di Grassi Claims First Win Of Season On Streets Of Zurich


Reigning champion Lucas di Grassi climbed from fifth on the grid to secure his first win of the 2017/18 ABB FIA Formula E Championship and mark a momentous victory on the return of circuit racing to Switzerland in over six decades.

The Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler driver stood on the top of the podium at the Julius Baer Zurich E-Prix and became the first winner of a single-seater race in Switzerland since Juan Manuel Fangio in Bremgarten in 1954.

Di Grassi made his move during the first stint of the race after narrowly missing out on super pole in qualifying. The Brazilian picked off the leading pack one-by-one over the course of the opening period of the race - crucially taking the lead from Mitch Evans approaching the mid-race car swaps and held station to the chequered flag.

DS Virgin Racing’s Sam Bird kept his championship hopes alive with second place and a sixth podium finish of the season. Bird started the race as the only realistic contender to table-topper Jean-Eric Vergne and needed desperately to reduce the 40-point gap.
