F1 stars struggle on Formula E debut

This will promote Jose Maria Lopez in the GEOX Dragon Racing machine onto the front row of the grid with Sebastien Buemi and Stoffel Vandoorne set to make up the second row of the grid. However, Da Costa activated his Attack Mode off the back of the safety vehicle to quickly re-open a two-second lead and then just about held off a resurgent Vergne. And he repeated the manoeuvre on Da Costa eight minutes later. Vergne and Da Costa both had one activation of attack mode left to use when the race restarted, which meant Vergne was able to quickly get around Mahindra's Jerome d'Ambrosio. For reigning champions Audi Sport Abt Schaeffler, Lucas di Grassi just fell short of the top ten while his teammate Daniel Abt finished near the back of the pack in 18th. (Due to Pascal Wehrlein's contractual obligation with Mercedes in the FIA DTM, he could not run the race for Mahindra Racing because of which the team roped in their ex-driver, Felix Rosenqvist). With no Super Pole, the drivers times will dictate their starting position in the inaugural E-Prix in Saudi Arabia later today.
