Buemi reduces Di Grassi's Championship lead

Sebastien Buemi has reduced Lucas di Grassi’s lead in the FIA Formula E Championship to just a single point following victory in the BMW i Berlin ePrix.

Buemi’s first win since Punta del Este in December came after he battled his way past polesitter Jean-Eric Vergne (DS Virgin Racing) and built up a comfortable lead. This was reduced to nothing when the Qualcomm Safety Car was called out to retrieve the stricken Dragon Racing car of Loic Duval.

This gave the chasing pack a chance to close in, but Buemi timed his restart perfectly and pulled away to claim his third win of the season. “The first lap is always a bit tricky because you don’t know how much energy you will consume so basically he was using a lot of energy and I had to decide how much energy I was willing to use in the first laps,” he said. “I let him [Vergne] go but after four or five laps he had to save a lot more so I made my move. He closed the door so it was tricky but from then on I focused on building a gap. I was going for the fastest lap with the second car but it was not the quickest race as when you used a lot of energy you really had to save a lot. In the end I didn’t manage it so I’m a bit disappointed with that as it’s two points, but overall it was a good weekend."

Daniel Abt scored his best result to date with an emotional second place, and received a terrific ovation from large percentage of the 15,000-strong crowd who made their way to the eVillage for the podium celebration.

The championship concludes in London on July 2 and 3.
