Dennis tightens the World Cup

British BMW's victory, his second of the year, which places him third, two points behind the leader Bird and one behind Da Costa. Podium by De Vries and Lynn.

The British Jake Dennis, from the BMW i Andretti Motorsport team, achieved his second victory in the Formula E World Championship this Sunday by winning the first of the two London ePrix scheduled for this weekend in the British capital, which allows him to place himself third overall, just two points behind the leader, British Sam Bird (Jaguar Racing), who failed to finish.

Dennis, a development driver for the Red Bull Racing Formula 1 team who made his debut in the second race in Valencia on 25 April, won in London ahead of Dutchman Nyck de Vries (Mercedes-EQ) and fellow Briton Alex Lynn ( Mahindra Racing), which finished 5,341 and 6,946 seconds, respectively.

The Briton took the lead in the race after overtaking pole-sitter Alex Lynn during the second round of attack mode activations. From there, he distanced himself from the rest with great energy management from his car. De Vries finished second after coming back from ninth place.

Despite not finishing this Saturday in London due to a contact in a congested first round, Sam Bird remains the leader of the tournament with 81 points, only one point more than the defending champion, the Portuguese Antonio Félix da Costa (DS Techeetah), and two above Dennis, who climbs up to the second square.
