MERCEDES-EQ FORMULA E TEAM LEADS THE TEAMS’ CHAMPIONSHIP AFTER VALENCIA E-PRIX
The Mercedes-EQ Formula E Team, proudly supported by NEOM, celebrated an emphatic win and P3 finish in round five of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship on Saturday in Valencia.
The team continues to go from strength to strength this season, building on two previous race wins in Diriyah and Rome.
Despite the five-place grid penalty imposed on Mercedes-EQ Formula E team driver Nyck de Vries at the previous race in Rome, which meant he started on Saturday from P7, the Dutch driver climbed up the grid to seal his second win of the season thanks to excellent energy management.
Similarly, his teammate Stoffel Vandoorne had to start the race from the back of the grid after his qualifying times were cancelled and fought his way up to a P3 finish, achieving his sixth podium in Formula E.
