Maximillian Gunther has been disqualified from the Berlin E-Prix after an energy consumption infraction, meaning that the German loses his 8th place finish.
BMW Motorsport’s twitter account broke the news with a tweet reading: “Unfortunately Maximillian Gunther has been disqualified from the race for using too much energy. That’s a shame…”
Gunther was also involved in contact with Robins Frijns and Mitch Evans, leading the Dutch driver to retire after sustaining damage from hitting the wall and Evans being spun around after Gunther was unable to avoid the Jaguar.
The disqualification of Gunther promotes Lucas Di Grassi to eighth place, and Gunther’s teammate Alexander Sims to ninth. Rene Rast, in his first race for Audi, is promoted to the final points paying position in tenth.
