BMW’s Guenther pips Frijns to win on home soil in Berlin

BMW i Andretti Motorsport’s Max Guenther crossed the line just a tenth-of-a-second ahead of Robin Frijns (Envision Virgin Racing) to take narrow victory in the Berlin E-Prix Round 8, on home turf for both team and driver, whilst pole man Jean-Eric Vergne brought his DS Techeetah home third. On the restart, with 22 minutes to run, Vergne and Guenther leapt away. From there, Guenther pulled clear, and having spent most of the race minding his own business in no man’s land a second clear of the battle for fourth and a second behind the lead pair, Frijns found himself able to slice past Vergne’s DS for second and in with a shout of the race win. Guenther held firm to take the chequered flag with the Dutchman a close second. Guenther now finds himself second whilst DS Techeetah head BMW i Andretti in the Teams’ table by 70 points.
