Stoffel Vandoorne sees a number of points and possible victory slip through the fingers after a collision in the ePrix of London

Stoffel Vandoorne (Mercedes-EQ) finished in twelfth place on Sunday at the second ePrix of London, the thirteenth and also third to last World Cup round of the season.

Vandoorne had nevertheless started from pole position in the British capital and initially held up well during the race, although he had to give up the lead halfway through to Brazilian former F1 driver Lucas di Grassi (Audi). Moments later, a contact with the British Oliver Rowland (Nissan e.Dams) caused our compatriot to sink far back, to about the middle of the pack. At the end of the race, Vandoorne was able to climb a few places to finish twelfth, after a fuss about whether or not Di Grassi was disqualified. The victory went to Briton Alex Lynn (Mahindra Racing).

On Saturday, Vandoorne finished eighth in the first London ePrix, which was won by Briton Jake Dennis (BMW i Andretti). He then collected six points, after three pointless GPs. With the three points from Sunday, he ends up in fourteenth place with a total of 63 points, 32 points behind Dutch leader Nyck de Vries – his teammate at Mercedes EQ.

The last two World Cup rounds will take place on August 14 and 15 in the German capital Berlin.
