History is made in Chile!

Cars using Renault Sport powertrains took first, second and third places in an historic finish to the FIA Formula E Championship’s latest ePrix, held in Chile.

In a gripping end to the race around the streets of Santiago, Jean-Eric Vergne led Techeetah team-mate Andre Lotterer home across the line and then Renault e.dams driver Sébastien Buemi in third.

                                                                                                           

It is the first time that powertrains developed by a single manufacturer have achieved a 1-2-3 result in the world’s premier electric race car championship.

 

Vergne’s win was his first of the 2017/18 season. Buemi’s third place was his second podium result in a row after he had finished second in Marrakesh, Morocco.

 

As the championship heads to Mexico for its fifth round (3 March), Vergne has taken over the lead of the drivers’ championship. Buemi, who suffered a torrid two opening rounds in Hong Kong, is up to fourth. His team-mate Nicolas Prost – tenth in Chile – is 15th in the table.

 

Meanwhile Techeetah has moved to the top of the team’s standings. Renault e.dams, which has won the last two teams’ titles, is fifth.

 

Buemi said: “We scored a good result in Chile with fourth in qualifying and third on the podium. But I’m a bit disappointed as I think our car was good enough to do better.

“I lost two places at the start and then some more time during my car change as we didn’t want to risk incurring a penalty. I’m pleased that I was able to fight off Felix Rosenqvist in the closing laps. Unlike in Marrakech he didn’t manage to get past!

 

“The fifteen points are important for me and for the team. We’re now looking ahead to Mexico where we hope to do even better than here.”
