During Formula E races, fans can play an active role thanks to FANBOOST. You can vote to award a burst of power to your favourite drivers, which can be used during the second half of the race. In both races, Stoffel and Nyck led the FANBOOST vote – thanks to all who voted for your support!
“We spent a lot of time preparing for this weekend and the start of this new chapter. The team have done a top job. Apart from the penalty, I’m pleased with today’s race and our debut weekend!” – Nyck de Vries
After the first round Stoffel is second in the Driver’s standings and Nyck is positioned in ninth place. And thanks to such a strong start, the Mercedes-Benz EQ Formula E Team now leads the Team standings with a total of 38 points.
“Starting the season with a podium finish is just fantastic for all of us. Congratulations to every single person who helped! Since I’ve already spent a year contesting Formula E, I too was able to do my bit and am very proud of all the people involved.” – Stoffel Vandoorne
