Cassidy emerges victorious in the Berlin E-Prix



Cassidy Berlin E-Prix 2023

Nick Cassidy has claimed his first victory in the 2023 Formula E season in a thrilling second race of the Berlin double-header. The race saw several lead changes, with eight different drivers taking the lead within the first 12 laps.

Nick Cassidy secured his first Formula E win of 2023 in the second race of the Berlin double-header, reducing Pascal Wehrlein’s championship lead by holding off Jake Dennis. Similar to the previous day’s race, the initial leadership position was unenviable, resulting in eight different drivers leading within the first 12 laps.

Eventually, Cassidy broke away with Dennis and Jean-Eric Vergne, aided by Antonio Felix da Costa’s collision with Mitch Evans.

Although the top three drivers had a small lead, Dennis was unable to pose a genuine threat to Cassidy, who clinched his second Formula E victory and closed the gap on Wehrlein in the driver’s standings.

Cassidy had a tumultuous weekend in Berlin, as he criticized his teammate Sebastien Buemi during Sunday’s morning practice session and was disqualified from his intra-team quarterfinal victory, pushing him back to eighth on the starting grid.

After a difficult streak of four races without a point, Jake Dennis clinched his third second-place finish of the season.

Jean-Eric Vergne claimed the third podium spot to keep his championship aspirations alive, with Mitch Evans and Antonio Felix da Costa completing the top five.


Maximilian Guenther secured an impressive sixth place for Maserati, having started from 21st, ahead of championship leader Pascal Wehrlein who struggled with some failed Porsche tactics. Defending champion Stoffel Vandoorne had a quiet run, finishing in eighth place.

Meanwhile, qualifying stars Robin Frijns and Nico Mueller, who secured a front-row lockout for Abt Cupra, had to fight hard to remain in the points. Frijns briefly led early on but fell out of the top ten and ultimately finished in 17th place.

On the other hand, Mueller fared better and secured his first points of the season with a ninth-place finish. Dan Ticktum bounced back from starting in 18th to claim the final point in tenth place, following his clash with Vandoorne and subsequent frustration over the penalty he received for it the previous day.

The beginning of the race faced a delay of almost 10 minutes due to protestors invading the track and sitting in front of the second row of the grid.

The protestors were eventually removed, but the start of the race was delayed as a result.

Sam Bird, who had finished second in the previous day’s race, saw his hopes of a third consecutive podium finish vanish due to front wing damage.

Similarly, Sebastien Buemi, who was eighth in the standings, sustained damage from the rear of Dennis’ car, ruining his race. Edoardo Mortara’s tough season continued when he sustained damage that required a pit stop.
