The Swiss Venturi makes his Race 2 on the Puebla circuit and leaps from eighth to the first position in the championship standings. Cassidy and Rowland also on the podium, penalty for Wehrlein
Revolution in the standings in Formula E: with the victory of Round 9, that is Race 2 of the Mexican GP, Edoardo Mortara (Rokit Venturi Racing) takes the lead of the general. And just think that before the race that took place on the night between Sunday 20 and Monday 21 June 2021, the Swiss was in eighth place, confirming the tight battle and the great uncertainty that dominates this world championship series. Now Mortara leads the standings with 10 points ahead of Robin Frijns (Virgin), with 11 drivers – from 2nd to 11th – enclosed in just 12 points.
Mortara wins in Mexico
For Mortara this is the second career victory in Formula E: the Swiss, thanks to an exceptional management of the Attack Mode strategy, preceded Pascal Wehrlein at the finish line in a Porsche, but the German driver was penalized by 5 seconds for having inappropriately used the Fanboost. So Nick Cassidy (Virgin Racing) and Oliver Rowland (Nissan Dams) gain a position each, 3rd and 4th respectively at the checkered flag but both on the podium precisely because of the penalty inflicted on Wehrlein. Reigning champion Antonio Felix Da Costa (DS) is forced to retire after hitting the barriers, while Jean-Èric Vergne (DS) has had to deal with a spin that has caused him to lose a lot of time (and positions).
