The ABB FIA Formula E season has come to a close, and two new champions have been crowned.
In a thrilling and chaotic Hancock London E-Prix weekend, Jake Dennis of Avalanche Andretti Autosport has emerged as ABB FIA Formula E Champion, with rivals Envision Racing taking the team championship.
In a weekend that saw two red flags, a massive pile up, and pouring rain in mixed indoor/outdoor conditions, surviving was the name of the game. It's also what championship contender Nick Cassidy and Envision Racing were not able to do in round 15, as a broken front wing ended their race after starting on pole. The DNF dashed Cassidy's chances at challenging Dennis for the title. To make matters worse, the contact that broke Cassidy's wing came from contact with his Envision teammate.
The driver's title isn't the only championship up for grabs, however, and Cassidy came roaring back to take the race win in Sunday's Round 16 race. That win locked-up the team championship for Envision Racing.
"To become world champion is mind blowing, I really didn't think it could happen coming into this year, but full credit to my boys. I love them so much, they have given me an absolute rocket ship all year, this is the least I could do for them." said an elated Dennis after round 15.
The races in London conclude what has been a truly exciting Formula E season, elevating the series into premiere motorsport status. The new Gen 3 cars have proven thrilling to watch, with tight racing, 7 different race winners, and a heated championship battle between 4 different teams (TAG Heuer Porsche Racing, Envision Racing, Jaguar TCS Racing, and Avalanche Andretti Autosport).
