Maximilian Günther wins first Formula E race in New York, Stoffel Vandoorne drops out after colorless race

Maximilian Günther has won the first Formula E race of the weekend in New York. The BMW German defeated former champions Jean-Eric Vergne and Lucas Di Grassi on the streets of Brooklyn. Stoffel Vandoorne did not have a very good race: the West Fleming only started the race in 21st position, could never claim points and ultimately did not make it to the finish.

Nick Cassidy had started the race from pole position. The New Zealander from Envision Virgin was able to hold that position initially, but was caught up later in the race. Maximilian Günther, who had started fourth, eventually fought his way for first place by overtaking Cassidy and Jean-Eric Vergne when they got into a fight.

Vergne also managed to grab Cassidy with some pushing and pulling and stayed second. Lucas Di Grassi also passed the New Zealander, who eventually finished fourth.

For Stoffel Vandoorne it was a race to forget quickly. Our compatriot had to go out early in qualifying and failed to set a very competitive time on the less rubberized track. Vandoorne started 21st and had a hard time making his way through the field. In the end, he didn’t make it to the finish.

Swiss Edoardo Mortara remains first in the standings, although he now shares that leading position with Dutchman Robin Frijns. Both have 72 points. Vergne is third with 68 units, Stoffel Vandoorne drops to tenth place. With 54 points, however, he is still far from finished in the battle for the World Cup: everything is still possible.
