Jake Dennis has put one hand on the championship after a lights to flag win, which saw his title rivals Nick Cassidy and Mitch Evans crash and fail to score.

Evans, who had qualified fourth, made his way past Nato for third, but locked the rear when trying to attack Cassidy for second, and mounted his countryman, almost flipping and landed in the barrier. Both drivers were able to continue, but Evans eventually parked his car, and Cassidy limped home to 14th after a last lap crash with Andre Lotterer.

Nato managed to hold off Jaguar’s Sam Bird for a season best second and a first podium for teh Nissan squad under their new ownership.

Edoardo Mortara finished a season best fourth ahead of Sebastien Buemi and teammate Max Guenther, with Pascal Wehrlein, who stays mathematically in title contention, in seventh.

Stoffel Vandoorne finished eighth ahead of Dan Ticktum with Nico Mueller ending a fantastic weekend for ABT Cupra driver.

Jake Hughes just missed out on a point in 11th, while Antonio Felix da Costa was dropped from the points due to a 5 second penalty for a crash with Lucas Di Grassi.

The win for Dennis puts him 24 points clear of second placed Nick Cassidy meaning he has a strong chance to take the title in the first race in London, where Jake has won on two occasions.
