Stoffel Vandoorne completes a great catch-up race in Mexico with a few points

Stoffel Vandoorne was able to finish the first race of the Formula E weekend in Mexico with a good feeling. Our compatriot had bad luck with the weather conditions during his qualifying part and was therefore only allowed to start 21st. Vandoorne steadily worked his way up through the race, eventually finishing seventh, scoring six points.

The victory at the Puebla circuit initially went to Pascal Wehrlein (Porsche), who started from pole position and crossed the finish line with a nice lead. However, Wehrlein and his teammate André Lotterer were disqualified immediately after the finish due to a tire rule violation.

A bitter pill for Wehrlein, but for Audi the disqualification meant a delirium. Lucas Di Grassi inherited the victory, team mate René Rast moved up to second place. Both gentlemen had squeezed their way past the Swiss Edoardo Mortara (Venturi) in the final phase. Mortara was still allowed to take the podium in third.

For World Cup leader Robin Frijns it was an afternoon to quickly forget. The Dutchman collided with his first pursuer and compatriot Nyck De Vries (Vandoorne’s teammate at Mercedes, ed.) and finished outside the points. Frijns remains World Cup leader with 62 points. Stoffel Vandoorne remains sixth and now has 54 points.

The next race is already scheduled for Sunday: then a new ePrix will be held on the Puebla circuit.
