Jérôme d’Ambrosio got our season off to a superb start with a podium finish in the Ad Diriyah E-Prix. After having started in P6, the Belgian drove a fantastic race to make his way up to P2 before crossing the chequered flag in third place.
Interestingly, all the opening races in the last three years have seen us on the podium.
Felix Rosenqvist, on the other hand, didn’t have the greatest of days as he was forced to retire midway through the race.
An electrifying drive from Jérôme d’Ambrosio saw our Belgian superstar secure a brilliant victory in Marrakesh. It was his third win in Formula E and his first in just his second race for Mahindra Racing.
Earlier in the day, things didn't look as good for Jérôme as he qualified in P10. But during the race, he was at his best, whizzing past the field to make it a second successive win for us in Morocco.
Pascal Wehrlein, on the other hand, had to unfortunately retire from the race early on after his car was hit on the first corner.
With two podium finishes from as many races, Jérôme now leads the drivers' championship while we are second in the teams' standings.
