Maximilian Gunther put his amazing form around the Jakarta E-Prix track to become the first driver to convert a pole position into a race winner.
Gunther continued his form from yesterday’s race after finishing third and taking pole. He was once again the fastest in every practice session and qualifying session and converted that in the race to take the victory.
The Maserati driver did lose the lead of the race during the first round of Attack Modes as the German driver went into Attack Mode on Lap four, but on the following lap, Jake Dennis took Attack Mode and came out in front of the Maserati driver.
However, during the second round of Attack Modes, it was Dennis who took his first on lap 15. Gunther put the hammer down and created a gap to Mitch Evans, which allowed him to take his final Attack Mode and come out in front of Dennis as Evans took the lead.
Once Evans went into Attack Mode on lap 20, Gunther and Dennis extended their lead out front. Gunther pulled a two-second gap to Dennis and created a ten-second gap to Evans in third.
It allowed Gunther to take a comfortable victory with Dennis coming home in second. Evans came home in third, but it wasn’t straightforward for the Jaguar driver.
Evans was under pressure in the late stages from the Nissan drivers, but Sacha Fenestraz and Norman Nato were unable to find a way past.
Pascal Wehrlein was adding pressure to the Nissan’s and Evans with a last-minute Attack Mode, but he was unable to find a way past.
Fenestraz came home in fourth with Nato in fifth and Wehrlein, who takes the lead of the championship by a single point to Dennis, finished in sixth.
Antonio Felix Da Costa secured seventh place for Porsche Edoardo Mortara came home in eighth in the second Maserati.
Stoffel Vandoorne finished in ninth and Sebastien Buemi came home to tenth.
Sam Bird and Sergio Sette Camara didn’t start the race, after both their cars had a technical problem on the grid.
Nick Cassidy collided with Pascal Wehrlein during the race and damaged his front wing. He finished outside the points and surrendered the lead of the championship to Wehrlein.
