Williams Esports continues delivering a strong performance in the 2021 season of the all-new World eX Championship. The team claimed its second straight victory after drivers Bruno Senna and Martin Štefanko finished 1-2 in Belgium.
Senna became the fifth different winner of the series, and the team he represents was the second squad to take the top two places after the final round of #RacingForTheClimate at Spa-Francorchamps.
The Brazilian finished on top, while Romain Grosjean showed a great performance on his comeback, but was unlucky at the end, which relegated him on the leaderboard.
Despite a difficult start, losing to Grosjean on Level 1 during a tough battle between former Formula 1 drivers, Senna recovered to win Level 2 and, alongside the Frenchman, made it through to the decisive stage.
Senna’s teammate and winner of the previous round in Estoril, Portugal, Štefanko stood firm through the levels against the Esports drivers and competed against his teammate in Stage 5, claiming the win and ensuring to decide things between racers from the same franchise, Willliams-Esports.

Štefanko initially ruled until Senna made an impressive overtake to assume the lead, which he maintained all the way to the finish line. The result ensures that both Williams Esports drivers have secured their places in the final at Nürburgring-Nordschleife on November 16.
After winning the race, Senna said: “It’s great to get my first win at World eX and congratulations to the team for their second win in a row. Thanks also to my teammate, Martin, and I will see him at the finals in November”.
The Leader did not have a Good Day
The Championship Leader with three wins so far this season, TK9 ESPEED’s Lasse Sørensen, left Belgium empty-handed. The young Dane made it through to Level 3 and crossed the line in second place.
However, Sørensen received his third yellow card for making contact with and spinning Henry Drury, and was therefore disqualified from the race, ending his chances of finishing on top.
