After a five-month break from racing, the Mercedes-Benz EQ Formula E team began the final sprint to the end of its debut season in the ABB FIA Formula E Championship by finishing fourth and sixth in the 2020 Berlin E-Prix.
In an exciting finish to the race, Nyck de Vries finished the Berlin E-Prix in fourth position and achieved his best result to date in his sixth race in Formula E (his previous best result was P5 in Santiago). In qualifying, Nyck de Vries went through to Super Pole with a best time in Group 3. With P5, he secured a place in the Top Five on the grid for the fourth time in his rookie season.
Stoffel Vandoorne started the race from 15th on the grid, and, with great racing and intelligent use of Attack Mode and Fanboost, improved by nine positions over the 36 laps to finish sixth.
The Mercedes-Benz EQ Formula E Team (76 points) is in third place in the team championship after six of eleven races this season. The next E-Prix will take place tomorrow, 6 August on the same track layout in Berlin.
