After 64 years, Swiss fans of Formula E could finally enjoy the race live! Unfortunately, the Swiss law that banned motorsport events in the country forced the people to watch these events on the TV, not on the tribune. But that has finally changed – the event has surpassed the expectations and it was a huge moment for motorsport.
The Zürich Street Circuit was a great place to race on and we don’t have to tell you that the event was full of excitement, do we?
The winner of this annual race was Lucas di Grassi – a Brazilian racing driver who has won last year’s Formula E Drivers’ Championship. It was his first victory of this season. Grassi had started at 5th place and during the race, he did really well.
“Finally, I’m super, super happy,” Grassi said after winning the race.
Thanks to his great work, he is 3rd in the overall standings and now he can battle for the title against French Jean-Éric Vergne and British Sam Bird, who is currently driving for Virgin Racing.
Bird had won in last season’s New York and we are sure he will want to repeat last year’s success. But the question is, will he be able to defeat Lucas di Grassi, who’s got big chances of going home with the title? We will know that next month.
