How Guenther and Maserati MSG Racing won the first Tokyo E-Prix

Ahead of a back-to-back of home races for Maserati MSG Racing, first in the Trident’s native Italy then MSG Racing’s Monaco a fortnight later, we look at how Maximilian Guenther steered to the team’s first win of Season 10 on our maiden trip to Tokyo, Japan. A mistake costs the ERT driver dearly, but with a 1:19.046 lap, Max progresses to the final with a 2.198 second advantage. Lap 11: Max reclaims second place in Turn 4 when Mortara activates his first of two ATTACK MODEs in the race. Lap 13: Rowland activates ATTACK MODE, allowing Max to take the lead. Lap 26: In his first full push lap after taking the lead, Max opens his gap over Rowland to 1.197 seconds, lapping 2.817 seconds faster than when he was in traffic. Lap 28: Max takes his second ATTACK MODE and crucially rejoins the race ahead of Rowland. Lap 35: Max starts the final lap facing immense pressure from behind.
