Paris ePrix: Buemi triumphs in French capital

Sébastien Buemi (Renault e.dams) followed up his victory in Monaco last week with another at Saturday’s Paris ePrix, ahead of Lopez and Heidfeld. A mistake by rival Lucas di Grassi (Abt Schaeffler Audi Sport) helped him to comfort his cushion at the top of the provisional Drivers’ standings.

Round 6 of the 2016/2017 FIA Formula E Championship took place in front of packed grandstands erected in the French city’s Hôtel des Invalides district, and its outcome may prove decisive in the fight for Season 3’s Divers’ crown.

As in Monaco last Saturday, Switzerland’s Sébastien Buemi started from pole, but fellow title chaser Lucas di Grassi qualified a lowly 14th on the grid before crashing into a wall on the 38th of the race’s 49 laps.

Again as in Monaco, the Renault e.dams star got away to a clean start and led from lights-out to chequered flag to beat Jose-Maria Lopez (DS Virgin Racing) and Mahindra Racing’s Nick Heidfeld and Felix Rosenqvist by 0.707s and more than two seconds respectively.

Jean-Eric Vergne (TECHEETAH), who was beaten to first place in qualifying by just six-thousandths of a second, was running second overall until Lap 33 when he crashed for the second time in two races. Nicolas Prost rounded out the afternoon’s top five to earn additional points for Renault e.dams. Sam Bird (DS Virgin Racing) posted the fastest race lap once again.

AI6I2471-66

In a Roborace held as a curtain-raiser event, a driverless prototype running on Michelin tyres completed a lap for the first time in public.

Next meeting: Berlin, German (June 10 and 11).
