Half the Formula E grid fail to finish in Valencia as drivers run out of energy on final lap

FORMULA E’s first of two races in Valencia ended in utter chaos as only 12 of 24 drivers finished the race. Mercedes’ title-leader Nyck de Vries took the victory as his rivals misjudged the amount of battery power required to finish the race. Da Costa was one of many drivers who had misjudged the energy required as others failed to finish the race. In FE, cars must finish the race with at least 0.1 per cent of energy. Teams across the paddock were left bemused after a whole host of drivers failed to finish the race. The second race of the double header in Valencia is on Sunday at 1pm.
