WEHRLEIN WINS FOR MAHINDRA RACING IN MONACO

• Pascal Wehrlein wins for Mahindra Racing in Round 3 of the ABB Formula E Race at Home Challenge
• Maximum points haul as he also took Pole Position and Fastest Lap
• The Formula E Esports competition raises funds for UNICEF

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.

“The start was very important and I’m not sure what happened behind but I saw there was a crash. After that I had a small gap and I just worked to keep the pace. In the end I was a bit quicker but for me it was quite a straightforward race. It’s nice to take the win for Mahindra Racing in Monaco and get a full points haul!”

Pascal Wehrlein

"It's fantastic to say Mahindra Racing won today in Monaco! I'm very happy that as a team we are supporting Formula E's Race At Home Challenge in support of UNICEF and are putting on a show for the fans at home that are currently missing out on their sporting action. The afternoon started well with Mahindra Racing’s sim driver Lucas Müller finishing on the podium in second in the Challenge race, then it got even better! Pascal has looked strong the last couple of weeks and now he has had the perfect day, scoring maximum points. The race for the championship is on!"
