Vandoorne took revenge for his Saturday crash. He then took pole position but went off the track during the race and had to give up. For 29-year-old Vandoorne it is his second victory in Formula E. Last year he won a race in Berlin.

In the standings Vandoorne moves up to fourth place with 33 points. Briton Sam Bird (Jaguar), who retired on Sunday, remains leader with 43 points. The championship continues in two weeks in Valencia, Spain. 

Vandoorne: “Weekend full of emotions”

“This is doing well, especially after what happened yesterday,” he referred to his Saturday crash. “I had faith in the car, overtook when possible and the team applied an excellent attacking strategy. That allowed me to keep the difference with Alex Sims (second, ed.).

Seven minutes before the end of the race, the safety car came onto the track a second time. “You never know what to expect. I still had my fan boost that I used in the final round to defend my position. It wasn’t easy after driving around in a certain comfort zone for a while, but I just had to stay sharp and not make mistakes. It was a weekend full of emotions with the Super Pole and yesterday’s disappointing match, but in the end it feels great to win now. ”
