Mercedes-EQ Formula E Team in the points on return to Mexico

Nyck de Vries finishes sixth in the third round of the 2021/22 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship – the Mexico City E-Prix – with Stoffel Vandoorne finishing the race in eleventh place

Nyck and Stoffel each set the fourth fastest time in their qualifying group to progress to the quarter-finals, where they had to settle for sixth and eighth on the grid after losing out to their immediate opponents.

Nyck was in the points for most of the 40 laps but was overtaken by a clutch of cars in the latter stages of the race. Having dropped out of the top ten, he then clawed his way back up to P6 in an exciting run-in to the finish line.

Stoffel looked assured in P7 for most of the race and was even in contention for P5 in the closing minutes when he was spun around in the hotly contested chasing group and eventually took the chequered flag in eleventh.

Edoardo Mortara (43 points) leads the Drivers’ World Championship by a margin of five points ahead of Nyck (38 points), with Stoffel (28 points) in fifth.

After the third round of the season, Venturi Racing (68 points) tops the team standings ahead of the Mercedes-EQ Formula E Team (66 points).
