Bird and Mortara hit the top in Diriyah’s double ABB Driver of Progress

NEOM McLaren’s Sam Bird and Mahindra Racing’s Edo Mortara topped the ABB Driver of Progress rankings in the Diriyah E-Prix Rounds 2 & 3, respectively. Bird stayed sixth for 21 laps and in that time was consistently slower than the field average – around 4kph down on the average speed per lap. Unlike Bird, Mortara was not in a position to set up a similar strong points finish with an early charge in race two.Mortara’s near miss. Mortara’s battery usage increased quite substantially, never less than 2.8% during this phase and with a peak of 3.1% on lap 21. In fact, Mortara had one of the slowest top speeds of every driver all race.
