RACE REPORT: Dennis drives to dominant Round 2 win in Diriyah

Reigning champion Jake Dennis bounced back from disappointment in the Mexico City season-opener to win by more than 13 seconds in the first round of the Diriyah double-header under the lights in Saudi Arabia. Evans followed on Lap 4 and Vergne was just about able to barge by the Jaguar to clamber back into P2 while Dennis hit the front and began to build an advantage. That proved to be a wise decision, with the Andretti able to leapfrog Evans for second as Dennis jumped for ATTACK on Lap 6. Evans, complaining of struggles with grip, was sandwiched between Dennis out front and JEV in third until then Kiwi went for his second 50kW boost. Dennis from Vergne, Evans, Nato, Sette Camara and Bird the top six on Lap 9. That dive gave Dennis a handy two-second cushion in P1 from Evans and Vergne behind.
