2017 New York City GP: Formula E Race Recap - Bird Flies High With New York Double


Sam Bird followed up his win in the inaugural FIA Formula E Qualcomm New York City ePrix with an emphatic victory in the second race of the double-header event held on the Brooklyn Circuit.

The DS Virgin Racing star produced a faultless lap to record his first pole position of the season, but he was beaten off the line by the Mahindra of Felix Rosenqvist, and the Swede held on out front during the opening stages.

Bird treated the fans who packed the grandstands to a masterclass in overtaking, executing a perfectly-judged move under braking for the hairpin at Turn 6. Once he was ahead, he simply drove away from the field. Even two Full Course Yellow periods – one of which was brought out when his DS Virgin team-mate Alex Lynn stopped on track – could deter him, and by the finish he was over 11 seconds clear.

Bird Soars To Historic Qualcomm New York City Eprix Win


NEW YORK CITY, USA (July 15, 2017) - Sam Bird became the first driver to win an international motor race in New York, with a superb drive in the FIA Formula E Qualcomm New York City ePrix.

The DS Virgin Racing driver had to work hard for his win. His rookie team-mate Alex Lynn scored a stunning pole position on his debut, while fellow front row starter Daniel Abt of ABT Schaeffler Audi Sport both had to be overcome before the Brit could lead the race.

Once he worked his way into the lead, Bird pulled out a comfortable advantage, which meant he was able to re-join still in top spot following his mandatory mid-race car change. However, he could not afford to relax in the closing stages.

When a broken driveshaft caused Nick Heidfeld to stop at the side of the road, the Qualcomm Safety Car was deployed and Bird’s lead over the TECHEETAH of Jean-Eric Vergne was neutralised.

Buemi Wins In Berlin After Mahindra Pitstop Confusion


Sebastien Buemi has extended his lead in the 2016/17 FIA Formula E Championship to 32 points after picking up his 12th career win in the all-electric single-seater series.

However, the Renault e.dams driver was not first across the line around the revamped Tempelhofring airfield circuit, but when on-the-road winner Felix Rosenqvist was given a 10-second penalty for an unsafe release in the pits, he was there to pick up the pieces.

With a large part of the fanatical 24,000-strong crowd who filled the grandstands attending the event over the weekend there to cheer him on, Buemi was handed the winner’s trophy by Formula E super fan James Harmon, creating an emotional coda to a fantastic event.

Buemi Hands Renault EDams Emotional Paris Win


Sebastien Buemi gave Renault e.dams its most important win of the year by producing a dominant display in front of its home crowd in the Qatar Airways Paris ePrix - round six of the 2016/17 FIA Formula E Championship.

From Julius Baer pole position, Buemi defended stoutly into the first corner from the charging Jean-Eric Vergne. He then established a small but comfortable lead, as the two leaders eased away from the chasing pack.

However, this wasn’t to be Vergne’s day and broken steering sent him crashing out of the race. The Qualcomm Safety Car was deployed, which bunched up the field and gave DS Virgin Racing’s Jose Maria Lopez a shot at fighting for the win.

Buemi Becomes Hat-Trick Hero In Buenos Aires


Sebastien Buemi has made Formula E history by becoming the first driver to win three races in a row.

Victory for the Renault e.dams ace continues the perfect start to his title defence. It was his ninth win in the all-electric street racing series, and the 12th for the team. That means Renault e.dams have now won half of all the Formula E races that have taken place.

But, in front of 21,000 enthusiastic fans, Buemi had to work hard for his victory. From his first-ever Julius Baer pole position, Lucas di Grassi (ABT Schaeffler Audi Sport) led away at the start, while Jean-Eric Vergne slotted his TECHEETAH into second place.

Di Grassi was struggling with his car, and in quick succession he was passed by Vergne and then Buemi. TECHEETAH uses the same powertrain as Renault e.dams, but there was nothing Vergne could do to stop Buemi charging by into the lead.
