Unpredictable, without a clear favorite. This has been the season number seven of Formula E that after Round 6 of the Valencia E-Prix in which the British Jake Dennis took his first victory of the series.
The podium was completed by André Lotterer (Tag Heuer Porsche) and Alex Lynn (from Mahindra Racing), the latter taking an extra point for having completed the fastest lap touring the Ricardo Torme Circuit in 1: 30.26.
On the side of the winning driver, the BMW i Andretti Motorsport driver took the pole position and started with possibilities, dominating the race from start to finish.
The race was carried out with some tranquility taking into account what happened on Saturday, and that is because special attention was paid to saving electrical energy that the drivers were going to deploy on the circuit after “Round 5” in which half of the grid drivers ran out of battery.
For that reason DS Techeetah driver Jean-Eric Vergne starred in two of the few overtakings in the E-Prix, one made against Tom Bloqmvist and the other when André Lotterer overtook the Frenchman for fourth place.
The German was quite aggressive and it is that with the passage of the race, he continued to overtake drivers until he finished in second place, beating René Rast and Norman Nato who would finish fifth for a touch to Alex Lynn that would earn him a 5-second penalty.
It should be noted that Oliver Turvey got an eighth place that is worth him to get four more points but with little flavor since the Briton started on the grid in fourth position.

On his side, the second in the drivers table, Stoffel Vandoorne failed to score points in the second Valencia race due to his touch with the Swiss driver Buemi. Championship leader Nyck de Vries finished in 17th position.
In the drivers’ championship table it will continue to be led by Dutchman Nyck de Vries with teammate Stoffel Vandoorne just 9 points behind him and Sam Bird in third place.
For that reason the positions are even more equal due to the fact that none of the first 5 drivers of the championship managed to score in the second E-Prix of Spain. The next round will take place with the Monaco E-Prix on May 8.
