New York can pass judgment

The championship arrives in the Big Apple with the general classification of drivers and constructors red hot with six drivers separated by 13 points.


The New York E-Prix (June 10-11) promises to be vibrant, as the penultimate round of the Formula E World Championship can decide the winner of both classifications. The American circuit returns to the scene after last year due to the pandemic it could not be carried out. The route located in Brooklyn has not been altered in any way since it was remodeled in 2017. The only change it presents is the pit lane, which this year will be parallel to the starting straight. The zone to activate the attack mode will be in the curve 10.

Everything indicates that the American city can dictate judgment in the competition classifications. After the victories of Di Grassi, driver of Audi Sport and Edoardo Mortara, driver of Rokit Venturi, in Puebla, the competition is very tight. In the Drivers 'World Cup we find up to six drivers in just 13 points, while in the Constructors' World Championship between the first and third placed there is a difference of only four points.

In the last round of the World Championship with his victory, Edoardo Mortara rose as the new leader of the drivers' classification with 72 points, ahead of Robin Frijns, Envision Virgin driver, and Antonio Da Costa, DS Techeetah driver with 62 points. and 60, respectively. The Swiss driver, last June, was able to obtain 40 points thanks to the sum of a victory and a third place in Puebla. We will see if it is able to maintain the pace shown in Mexico and remains in the lead in these two new events that take place in the New York district.

In the Manufacturers' World Championship standings, the Mercedes-EQ team continues to lead. The German team after only obtaining eight points in the last four races remains at the top with 113 points ahead of the Chinese team DS Techeetah and the British team Jaguar with 110 and 109 points, respectively. We will see if the Dutch Nick De Vries and the Belgian Stoffel Vandoorne, both Mercedes drivers are able to improve their performances, both with two disqualifications in the last four rounds, which will generate enough points to keep the German team as the first classified.

The show is on. After these two tests in North America, Formula E will end the season in London at the end of this month.
