Redemption for Stoffel Vandoorne in Rome as Mercedes driver seals Round 4 victory

Mercedes-EQ’s Stoffel Vandoorne launched himself into the Drivers’ Championship mix with the race win and TAG Heuer Fastest Lap in Round 4 after another frantic encounter at Rome’s spectacularĀ Circuito Cittadino dell’EUR. Polesitter Nick Cassidy (Envision Virgin Racing) span out of the lead on the opening lap with Nato briefly heading the pack before Wehrlein snatched top spot. Three laps in and the Kiwi set about battling back, moving beyond both Sam Bird (Jaguar Racing) and Sebastien Buemi (Nissan e.dams) for ninth while race leader Nato had Pascal Wehrleinā€™s Porsche all over his rear diffuser. It remained as you were in the podium positions with Vandoorne leading Sims and Wehrlein. That was, until Lap 17 when Nato slipped up the inside of Wehrlein for a provisional podium ā€“ top stuff from the rookie. Sims followed second just 0.6 seconds back with Nato taking a first Formula E podium on track.
