Consistency does not betray the results, that’s what Stoffel Vandoorne felt after the New York Formula E race (16-17/7). Two series in Formula E New York, Stoffel Vandoorne managed to grab one podium on Sunday.
The podium which also brought Stoffel Vandoorne to the top of the standings which had once been separated from his lap. Stoffel Vandoorne has rarely won in Formula E 2022, but has been very consistent in the top three.
When compared to rivals such as Mitch Evans who have won three wins this season, Stoffel Vandoorne has only won one. But the Mercedes EQ FE Team driver has already accumulated 155 points and is far more consistent than all his rivals.
“I’ve had good results in New York, the car has had a good performance since Saturday, but there was some bad luck,” said Vandoorne.
“Everything was resolved on Sunday, Da Costa was very good throughout the race, he was able to keep the first position very well,” he added in a Mercedes release.
“This second podium is very important, we finally managed to rise to the top of the assessment in the remaining two countries,” he said.
Formula E 2022 does leave two cities, London in England and Seoul in South Korea.
Both have their own challenges at the London ExCel circuit which combines indoor-outdoor racing.
Then the Seoul E-Prix just held the race this year after being delayed for two years due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
