Dutchman Nyck De Vries won the first race of the Formula E season in Diriyah ahead of Edoardo Mortara and Mitch Evans.
Nyck De Vries won every session at the Diriyah circuit on Thursday and Friday, from practice to the race. The Dutch driver started from pole and never looked back, taking the first victory of his Formula E career.
His success also symbolises the strength of Mercedes in this first round of the season, as Edoardo Mortara and his Venturi powered by the German manufacturer took second place following a strong comeback.
The Swiss driver made an exceptional overtake on Mitch Evans and Pascal Wehrlein, moving from fifth to third position in one stop. He then passed René Rast at the end of the race.
Mitch Evans (Jaguar) completed the podium after a solid race ahead of Rast (Audi), Wehrlein (Porsche) and Rowland (Nissan DAMS). Stoffel Vandoorne made the other comeback of the day, finishing eighth after a bad qualifying session, which once again proves the good health of Mercedes.
The other favourites for the title, on the other hand, had a complicated start to the championship. Reigning champion Antonio Felix Da Costa finished 11th in his DS Techeetah, while Sébastien Buemi, who was very angry on the line, finished 13th in his Nissan DAMS just ahead of Frenchmen Norman Nato (Venturi) and Jean-Eric Vergne (DS Techeetah).
Maximilian Günther crashed into the wall and Alex Lynn collided with Sam Bird, both accidents resulting in a safety car.
