Stoffel Vandoorne is the new leader of the Formula E world championship. The Belgian driver won a tough race in Monaco, in which many drivers had alternatives but finally the Mercedes driver took the cat to the water with a great final stint after the last safety car. Vandoorne is the leader, but only just.
Pascal Wehrlein was very much on track victory for Porsche, but the mechanics of his electric single-seater let him down when he was already leading the race. To make matters worse, his teammate, André Lotterer, also suffered an accident a few laps later that completely changed the course of the race.
Wehrlein had the race won until his Porsche stalled at Loews
Wehrlein was not only leading and was being the driver with the best pace, but could still use a period of extra power to solidify his advantage. However, the Porsche was left lying in the middle of Monaco, opening the fan so that many pilots believed they had the right to oppose this victory.
And it is that in addition to abandoning, the Porsche remained stopped at the exit of the tunnel, which caused a yellow flag situation throughout the circuit that betrayed more than anyone to Jean-Eric Vergne. The Frenchman from DS had just activated his period of extra powerand had to consume it without being able to attack under a yellow flag.
It seemed that the race was very defined for Vandoorne, who in addition to being the leader could still activate his extra power, but when he did Lotterer had his accident in Santa Devota, after a touch with Oliver Rowland. Safety car and Vandoorne, like Vergne before, wasting the extra power.
The race seemed to be left for Mitch Evans’ Jaguar, which also had to activate its extra power. However, when he did, following the safety car restart, he lost a key position to Robin Frinjs. He was able to overtake him and Vergne, but it was too late to reach Vandoorne.
Thus, this victory Vandoorne leaves him as the leader of the Formula E world championship with a six-point advantage over Vergne, while Frinjs and Evans are tied for third, just nine behind Vandoorne. And there are still ten races to go. The world promises to be tight between Mercedes, DS, Jaguar and Audi.
Behind, fifth position of Ántonio Félix da Costa, just ahead of Lucas di Grassi. Nyck de Vries, the reigning champion, is not having his best season and has only finished tenth, while AAntonio Giovinazzi, a newcomer from Formula 1 that generated a lot of expectation, is still in the last positions.
