The pilot of Mahindra has remained behind Sébastien Buemi during almost the whole race, and four laps from the end has struck the ultimate to climb back up to the top of the podium, as it did in one of the two races held in Hong Kong after the exclusion of Daniel Abt. Buemi had to settle for the second position, while Sam Bird finished third, a result that does not allow him to retain the lead of the Formula E, which now goes to the hands of Rosenqvist.

A maneuver that, among other things, allowed Lucas Di Grassi and Nelson Piquet Jr. ensure the fifth and sixth place that they had from the start.

all in all, it was not the only rider who suffered some kind of mishap in the first few laps. However, ‘Pechito’ Lopez looked surprised by Lucas di Grassi, in a move that made him lose his line to the argentine. Out of site, the argentine fell to the seventh position of coup. In the final part of the group, Nico Prost was spun off as a result of a touch, a clear summary of your difficult weekend.

Jean-Eric Vergne was the beginning of the second half of the race beating ‘Pechito’ López for fifth position, in a move that almost turned into an oasis in the desert, since the positions were going to be well-defined. In fact, Sébastien Buemi reduce their pace per lap to try to separate from Felix Rosenqvist, something that could not. To failure five laps from the end, the two great protagonists of the race were separated less than a second, while that Bird was let down by not being able to keep up with the pace of the two leaders.
