With six dates disputed in three different circuits and with five different winners, the championship of the Formula E is very fought. After the two dates held in the Spanish circuit of Valencia, the Dutch Nyck de Vries (Mercedes EQ) is the one who has taken command of the electric category.
De Vries, who made his triumphant debut at the opening of the contest in Diriyah (Saudi Arabia), celebrated again on Saturday at the Valencian track. This competition was very unique as most of the drivers ran out of energy on the last lap and this had an impact on the final result.
In fact, De Vries reached first place after the delay of the Portuguese champion Antonio Felix Da Costa (DS Techeetah). The podium was completed by the Swiss Nico Müller (Dragon / Penske) and the Belgian Stoffel vandoorne (Mercedes EQ), who started last due to a penalty after qualifying.
On Sunday De Vries finished 16th, but despite not scoring points for the third time this year (he dropped out in the two races in Rome, Italy), he remained at the forefront of the tournament thanks to the fact that the protagonists of the test are not fighting for title.
The victory was for the English Jake dennis (BMW i Andretti Motorsport), who achieved his first success in the specialty; the German André Lotterer (TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team) and English Alex lynn (Mahindra Racing).
In the championship De Vries commands with 57 points and his escort is Vandoorne with 48. The next date will be May 8 in Montecarlo (Monaco)
