Maximilian Günther put on a dominant display in Indonesia to seal Round 11 of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship – giving Maserati its first world championship single-seater victory since 1957
Following an intense opening race of the weekend on Saturday, Sunday would provide the conclusion of the hot and humid double-header – with an extra two laps added onto the Sunday race length. Maserati MSG Team star Maximilian Günther was the man to beat for most of the weekend. Topping all free practice sessions, chalking up two pole positions and a podium in the opening race in south-east Asia – the German was eager to leave Indonesia with his first win of the season to top it all off.
It was to be a repeat front row with British driver Jake Dennis (Avalanche Andretti Formula E) once again starting on Günther’s inside with Mitch Evans in the JAGUAR TCS Racing car third.
Günther, clinical off the line led into the first turn, with Dennis getting a better start on the dustier inside line managed to hold station with a hard-charging Stoffel Vandoorne (DS Penske) who made a demon start from the third row settled himself into fourth behind Evans.
