- WHAT HAPPENED LAST YEAR?
Last year's Punta del Este e-Prix was one of the most drama-filled & close of the entire season. A stunning debut performance by Andretti's Jean Eric Vergne put him on pole in front of Nelson Piquet Jr (China Racing) & Sebastien Buemi (Dams).
A lot of wheels spinning from Vergne at the race start cost him the first position, but soon managed to get in front of Piquet once again by attacking hard into the hairpin.
Meanwhile Buemi managed to pass the brazilian too and get into the slipstream of the frenchmen.
At the mid-pack a lot of action, with Sam Bird crashing into the wall as well as Sarrazin & Brabham, forcing 3 Safety Car periods!
Pit stop gamble advantaged Buemi, who had less pace and energy then Vergne in the final laps. The ending was insane! Vergne attacked Buemi in every corner, making even contact, before damaging the car on a kerb and finishing his debut race; Buemi was the race winner!
- WHAT HAPPENED LAST RACE?
One of the most chaotic, unpredictable and crazy races ever went live in the streets of Putrajaya, not far from Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia).
Poleman's Buemi looked comfortable for the second win in a row, but reliability issues started to decimate the field in the second part of the race. Than lead changes every, lap, crashes, and the victor always uncertain.
That was pure Formula E madness, but Lucas Di Grassi managed his car & battery better than everyone else, winning the race in front of Sam Bird & the spectacular Robin Frijns
