Di Grassi and Renault e.dams secure 2016/2017 Formula E titles

The last meeting of the 2016/2017 Formula E Championship saw Brazil’s Lucas di Grassi (Abt-Schaeffler Audi Sport) and Renault-e.dams/Michelin clinch the Drivers’ and Teams’ titles in Montreal, Canada.

The outgoing FIA Formula E Champion Sébastien Buemi had a nightmare weekend in Montreal where he suffered a big crash in Friday’s free practice session, before taking a 10-place penalty on the grid for Race 1 from which he was ultimately disqualified. He then qualified a modest 13th for Race 2 in the course of which he was forced to pit to repair collision damage.

Despite having secured six wins from 12 races in the course of the season, the Renault e.dams driver failed in his bid to defend his 2015/2016 crown and the title went instead to di Grassi who can look back at a more consistent string of results since last October’s opener in Hong Kong. The Abt-Schaeffler Audi Sport star also benefited from his Swiss rival’s absence from the recent New York City meeting due to conflicting World Endurance Championship duties. That allowed di Grassi to close the gap at the top of the standings before victory in the first Canadian race promoted him 18 points clear going into the season’s finale.

The 32-year old snapped up the opportunity to become Formula E’s third champion, in the footsteps of fellow Brazilian Nelson Piquet Junior (2014/2015) and Buemi (2015/2016) who had to settle for runner-up honours this time round.

The bronze medal went to Sweden’s Felix Rosenqvist (Mahindra Racing) after a thrilling battle with DS Virgin Racing’s Sam Bird which kept spectators entertained during the season’s later fixtures.

Despite its various woes in Canada, Renault e.dams/Michelin notched up its third straight Teams’ title thanks to the efforts of Buemi and Nicolas Prost. The French squad was joined on the final podium by Abt-Schaeffler Audi Sport and Mahindra Racing.

The last clash of the current campaign was won by Jean-Eric Vergne (Techeetah) who found a way past pole-winner Rosenqvist with around 10 laps to go. It was the Frenchman’s first victory in the series and came one after a podium finish in Race 1 which saw his team-mate Stéphane Sarrazin take 3rd place.

Season 4 of the FIA Formula E Championship (2017/2018) is due to start in December in the streets of Hong Kong.
