Belgian racer, Stoffel Vandoorne, only finished fifth in the ninth series of Formula E racing in Jakarta, Saturday (4/6/2022). However, the Mercedes-EQ team drivers are firmly at the top of the electric car racing standings.
New Zealand’s Mitch Evans won the ninth Formula E race. The Jaguar TCS Racing racer managed to beat Jean-Eric Vergne from the DS Techeetah team who was in second place. Meanwhile, Edoardo Mortara from the Rokit Venturi Racing team finished in third place.
Mitch Evans won the victory not easily. He had struggled to compete with Jean-Eric Vergne and Antonio Felix da Costa when the race started.
There was an incident on the second lap when the safety car came out. The reason, Rowland’s car tires off and lying in the middle of the track. This situation forced the safety car to interrupt the race. This is to provide an opportunity for Marshall to pick up the tire that was lying around.
