New York glory for DS Virgin!

The weekend’s two Formula E races in New York City were won by DS Virgin Racing/Michelin’s Sam Bird, which means the 2016/2017 Drivers’ and Teams’ titles will now go down to the wire at the season’s finale in Montreal, Canada, in two weeks’ time.

Virgin-founder Sir Richard Branson couldn’t have wished for a better performance from his Formula E squad in New York City.

Championship rookie Alex Lynn put the team on pole position for Race 1, while team-mate Sam Bird qualified on top for Race 2 and won both ePrix to round out an assertive grand slam for DS Virgin Racing in his Michelin Pilot Sport EV2-equipped DSV-02 all-electric single-seater.

The first race, the first ever to be organised in the streets of the Big Apple, kept spectators on their toes when Daniel Abt (Abt-Schaeffler Audi Sport) was quicker than Lynn off the line before completing the first 15 laps in front. Next time round, however, he was passed by Sam Bird who went on to secure his first win of the championship. The latter part of the ePrix was marked by the accident of Felix Rosenqvist (Mahindra Racing), but that didn’t prevent Techeetah’s drivers Jean-Eric Vergne and Stéphane Sarrazin from clinching second and third places.

Sunday’s clash kicked off at 1pm local time at the same 1.950km temporary circuit through Brooklyn’s Red Hook dockland. After winning qualifying by 37-thousandths of a second, Bird put his pole position to good use to speed to his second victory in two days. Rosenqvist and his Mahindra Racing team-mate Nick Heidfeld battled fiercely for the podium’s second and third steps, while Pierre Gasly celebrated his Formula E debut (as stand-in for Sébastien Buemi at Renault e.dams) with fourth spot, ahead of Lucas di Grassi (Abt-Schaeffler Audi Sport).

Taking advantage of the fact that Buemi was on FIA WEC duty at the Nürburgring, Germany, the Brazilian has gone 10 points clear in the provisional Drivers’ standings with the season’s last two races to come in Montreal, Canada, on July 29-30.
