Nissan e.dams’ Rowland rounded off his fantastic second half of the competition by taking Julius Baer Pole Position and backing it up with a fine drive to take his second race victory of the season and finish third overall in the standings. 

BMW i Andretti Motorsport’s Guenther also made his second podium of the weekend after a three-race streak without – a run which ended his own title hopes after winning the opening two races of the season, and he had to make do with fourth place in the standings. 

But the day and the competition belonged to the consistent Vandoorne who has never finished below fifth helped by his qualifying performances – with four poles - despite only winning one race as he finished 24 points ahead of runner-up Wehrlein. 

In the winner-takes-all Challenge Grid final, Kevin Siggy held off an early challenge from main rival Lucas Mueller to be crowned the Challenge Grid Winner and, with it, claim the prize of driving the Formula E Gen2 race car at a future race weekend. 

The Slovenian was a deserved winner having won four races out of eight during the competition to also finish top of the standings.

Despite starting in fifth place Vandoorne made a fantastic double overtake on the first lap to move up into third place but hit the wall in the process to fall back one place – a position he was unable to improve on.

The fourth place ensures he remains well within the title hunt just seven points behind Wehrlein and there will be little room for error in tomorrow’s race in Berlin Tempelhof – a track the Belgian started in pole last time out.

While the race lacked the chaos seen in other rounds Rowland had enough time for a robust move on Van der Linde on one of the final corners to sneak into second place in the final seconds.

Despite the victory for Wehrlein, it will still be all to play for tomorrow with double-points on offer for the season finale with Vandoorne, Guenther and Rowland still mathematically capable of lifting the trophy.

Earlier in the day Lucas Mueller won the Challenge Race to confirm he will start in second place for tomorrow’s winner-takes-all race but Kevin Siggy – who finished second – will start on pole after opening an unassailable points-lead in the competition so far.
