Formula E’s tenth race this season on Saturday saw Wehrlein start in third place, managing to pass Maximilian Günther over the first third of the race, while Dennis maintained his starting second position to the end race.
Maximilian Günther followed up his podium finish on Saturday with victory in the second race in Jakarta on Sunday ahead of Jake Dennis (Avalanche Andretti) and Mitch Evans (Jaguar TCS Racing).
