Mortara Majestic In Mexico Formula E Run

PUEBLA, Mexico – For the second time in his Formula E career, Edoardo Mortara lifted the winner’s trophy for ROKiT Venturi Racing after mastering the strategy with the challenging Attrack Mode activation zone to control Sunday’s Formula E event at Autódromo Miguel E. Abed.

Pascal Wehrlein rebounded from a disqualification Saturday to finish second. The TAG Heuer Porsche driver pushed Mortara hard until a slight mistake allowed Mortara to open up a gap.

Envision Virgin Racing rookie Nick Cassidy scored a well fought podium, bouncing back from a crash on Saturday to snatch third from polesitter Oliver Rowland.

“What a weekend for us – 40 points in two days. This win today is fantastic,”  said Mortara. “Pascal was very strong today, it was hard to keep him behind. We used more energy in the first part of the race to build a gap and in the latter I had to save more energy.

“I am glad to be here, the car was very competitive, the team put on a great strategy. We try to maximise our potential every time we race, and we do our very best all the time. I am happy with our season so far.”

The victory sees Mortara jump to the top of the drivers’ standings from eighth, the Swiss-Italian now sitting 10 points clear of Robin Frijns.
