9 May 2020 – Round three of the eight weekend ABB Formula E Race At Home Challenge took place today, with all 24 regular FIA Formula E Championship drivers taking to the virtual Monaco E-Prix circuit to battle it out for victory in the sim series.
Pascal Wehrlein dominated proceedings, taking Pole Position and then a commanding lights-to-flag race victory and Fastest Lap to extract maximum points from the event.
Mahindra’s #94 driver, who impressed in the first two rounds, made a statement straight out the box today by sealing pole position for the race, earning a €1,000 donation to UNICEF from Julius Baer, which will go towards helping support children affected by the Coronavirus crisis around the world. He went on to take a dominating win, unpressured by competitors behind. Other sim series frontrunners Stoffel Vandoorne and Maxi Günther finished alongside Pascal on the podium.
Pascal scored maximum points out of today’s event; 25 points for the win, 1 point for the Julius Baer Pole Position and a further point for the DHL Fastest Lap.
Jerome qualified in 10th position and ran in a points-scoring position for a good portion of the race but was eliminated at the end of lap 13 due to the ‘Race Royale’ format, finishing 14th.
