Audi driver Daniel Abt won the fifth ePrix of the Formula E season in Mexico City to become the first German to triumph in the all-electric series.
Abt took the lead during the mandatory pit-stop to change cars when he overtook Britain’s Oliver Turvey. Abt thought he had claimed his first victory in the second race in Hong Kong on his 25th birthday last December but was later disqualified for a technical breach of the regulations by his team.
So in Mexico, the German said, “I hope I can keep this one,” and praised the team for a “fantastic pit-stop.” Abt is now on position 6 in the overall ranks.
Second in the Mexico ePrix was Oliver Turvey for the NIO Formula E team. Sébastien Buemi (Renault e.dams) came in third.
