Berlin ePrix: Rosenqvist on form in Berlin

Sweden’s Felix Rosenqvist (Mahindra Racing) left Berlin with the weekend’s highest points haul thanks to his victory in Saturday’s race. Sunday’s victor was the championship’s provisional leader Sébastien Buemi (Renault e.dams).

The weekend’s 2016/2017 FIA Formula E Championship gathering at Berlin’s former Tempelhof Airport featured two races which both ran in splendid summery weather.

Saturday’s contest was won by Felix Rosenqvist who earned Mahindra Racing’s maiden success in the all-electric series after passing pole-winner di Grassi (Audi Sport Abt Schaeffler) on Lap 21. He was chased over the line by the Brazilian and team-mate Nick Heidfeld who made it two Mahindra cars in the top three!

After a poor qualifying performance, Buemi started from 14th on the grid but succeeded in crossing the line in fifth place before learning of his disqualification for under-pressure Michelin Pilot Sport EV2 tyres (minimum authorised by the regulations: 1.6 bar).

Rosenqvist nearly took his score to two victories in Sunday’s competition but, after dominating qualifying and the race itself, the 2015 European F3 champ took a 10-second penalty for a hazardous pit-lane exit when he came close to colliding with Heidfeld’s identical car.

That handed top spot to Buemi who was joined on the podium by the Swede and di Grassi who secured the silver medal ahead of team-mate Daniel Abt. DS Virgin Racing’s pair tangled early on but José Maria Lopez recovered to steal fifth from Jean-Eric Vergne (TECHEETAH) five laps from home.

Mitch Evans (Panasonic Jaguar Racing) and Maro Engel (Venturi Formula E Team) posted the weekend’s two fastest race laps.

Next round: New York ePrix (USA), July 15-16 (two race).
