Formula E title hopes suffer setback

The Renault e.dams team’s hopes of titles in the FIA Formula E Championship have suffered highs and lows in the category’s latest two races in Mexico and Uruguay.

Sébastien Buemi took a fine third place finish – his third podium result in a row – in the Mexico ePrix, held on a shortened version of the country’s Formula 1 circuit.

 

Another podium result was looking highly likely when the all-electric racing championship moved to the streets of Punta del Este in Uruguay with Buemi right in among the leading group of drivers.

 

However, his car suffered rear end damage in a brush with one of the circuit’s unforgiving barriers and he was forced to crawl back to the pit lane to take over his second car. He eventually retired in the pit lane.

It was a third setback in six races for Buemi, although he still holds fourth in the drivers’ points table.

Team-mate Nico Prost also suffered misfortune in the Mexico and Uruguay races and, although his pace suggested top ten results had been possible, he was unable to score.

 

With six races to go, Renault e.dams lies sixth in the teams’ standings. Its cars and drivers are next in Formula E action in Rome on 14 April – the first time that the championship has visited the Italian capital – before the title race moves on to the team’s home round in Paris, France (28 April).
