You know you’re a badass when you can extend a race by an extra lap and cripple a Formula E field… Just because you can.
Welcome to Formula E in Mexico, Round 3 of the World Championship, and we had a genuinely great time with this one. We had Edo Mortara gunning for pole sideways in a brilliant set of improved Duels, and that was the pre-show!
Mexico City’s ePrix was a superb race. We had some great action up the front as Mortara, Frijns, the Porsche’s and the DS Techeetah’s up the front. But we were all bamboozled by Porsche’s second half of the race, saving energy, taking the front of the field and then dominating to take a 1-2 finish.
They even had time to sprinkle in a little of the classic Formula E chaos as with just a second left on the clock, the Porsche’s crossed the line to extend the race by an extra lap, and it wrecked havoc with the midfield as Jaguar and Avalanche were caught napping as they were essentially out of battery. And in all of that, Pascal Wehrlein finally gets his first Formula E win, and this time, he got to keep it! We break it all down, as well as a surprisingly docile Andre Lotterer following Pascal home in 2nd!
But this race was absolutely happily fun-times, so of course, this’ll be our last race for two months. See you in Rome on April 9th, but it’s genuinely great to be enjoying Formula E again, so enjoy the show!
