Mexico City Formula E: Daniel Abt takes breakthrough win for Audi
Daniel Abt gave Audi its first Formula E win of the 2017/18 season by clinching victory in the Mexico City ePrix ahead of Oliver Turvey and Sebastien Buemi.
Abt, who was stripped of a maiden win in the second leg of the Hong Kong round, made a much faster pitstop to get ahead of Turvey in the car swaps. The 47-lap race had three distinct phases, with polesitter Felix Rosenqvist leading the early stages before stopping on-track and handing the lead to Turvey.
Turvey maintained his advantage over Buemi, who lost second to Abt - up from fifth on the grid - by running wide at the first corner at the start of lap 21. The leaders came in on lap 24 and Abt made the fastest car switch to leap past Turvey and seize the net lead. From there, Abt never looked back and surged clear over the second half of the race to take the win by 6.3 seconds.
