Formula E’s first season of all-electric racing is over. After several months of occasionally intense competition, the revolutionary global electric racing came to a conclusion in London over the weekend.
Nelson Piquet with Team China Racing won the inaugural season of Formula E, after one of the most dramatic races of the year. Sébastien Buemi placed second in the championship.
Piquet took seventh position, two places behind Buemi’s e.dams entry, to take a championship victory that looked a long shot after the Brazilian qualified only 16th.
“Today was such a hectic race,” Piquet said. “I tried to avoid asking my team any questions and I didn’t know that I had won until I cross the line.”
The ex-Formula 1 driver gained four places at the start before conserving energy to go at least one lap longer than the rest of the field in his first car. Piquet rejoined in 10th in his second Spark-Renault SRT_01E and moved into a position to win the championship on lap 23 of 29.
