Formula E 2024 Berlin E-Prix Round 10: Highlights and Reaction

Join us for live coverage from Round 10 of the 2024 Formula E season as we go to Germany for Race 2 at the Berlin E-Prix

-

A well-deserved victory

Antonio Felix da Costa fought his way to the front from tenth of the grid, doing well to hold off yesterday’s race winner Nick Cassidy to claim the victory as his own.

His teammate Pascal Wehrlein came across the line just short of the podium, finishing in P4.

The waiting game: who will get a penalty?

The stewards have noted a couple of racing incidents, which will be reviewed after the race. Edoardo Mortara is involved in two of these incidents: one with Stoffel Vandoorne and the other with Jake Hughes.

How about Taylor Barnard?

The 19-year-old drove a great race, finishing firmly in the points and ahead of his teammate Jake Hughes. Barnard has been driving in Sam Bird’s place this weekend, as the British driver continues to recover from a wrist fracture he picked up at the Monaco E-Prix.

Barnard has driven brilliantly throughout his stint as Bird’s replacement, finishing inside the points at both rounds of the 2024 Berlin E-Prix. The Brit has certainly made a great first impression in the world of Formula E.

An emotional win for Da Costa

Speaking after the race, Da Costa was overjoyed. “It’s great to win at a home race for Porsche,” he said. “We’ve got so many guests here, so many people from the factory that can’t usually come to races, so it’s a special one.”

The top 10

  1. Da Costa
  2. Cassidy
  3. Rowland
  4. Wehrlein
  5. Dennis
  6. Evans
  7. Daruvala
  8. Barnard
  9. Eriksson
  10. Vergne

Lap 41/41: DAC takes the flag!

It’s a win on home ground for Porsche, as Antonio Felix da Costa takes the chequered flag, beating Cassidy to the race win.

That’s Da Costa’s third win at the Tempelhof Circuit, and his first official win of the season. Da Costa previously won at the Misano E-Prix, but was stripped of his win after he was disqualified shortly after the race.

Lap 40/41: Jaguar swaps positions

The two Jaguars swap track position, Cassidy getting ahead of Evans. It was the final push Cassidy needed, who quickly gets ahead of Rowland, chasing Da Costa for the lead.

Lap 37/41: Cassidy is unhappy

Nick Cassidy voices his frustration with the team, presumably a result of Evans’ reluctance to take Attack Mode. Cassidy finds himself stuck behind his teammate down in P4.

Lap 36/41: Three laps added

After the racing time lost under the safety car, three laps are added, bringing the total to 41 laps. As it stands, Da Costa is now back in the lead, Mitch Evans having taking his remaining Attack Mode.

Rowland is running in second, with Evans, Cassidy and Wehrlein following him respectively.

Lap 34/38: What is Mitch Evans’ plan?

The Jaguar driver still has three minutes of Attack Mode remaining. Nick Cassidy seems well aware of this fact, and brings it up over the radio.

“You know the longer Mitch waits to attack, the worse it is for me,” says Cassidy.

Lap 31/38: Evans gets ahead

Mitch Evans manages to get the jump on Da Costa, snatching the race lead from the Porsche driver’s clutches. Meanwhile, the Dennis-Wehrlein battle continues, the British driver taking damage as he makes contact with Wehrlein.

Lap 30/38: Tensions are rising

It’s getting messy between Wehrlein and Dennis, the two Porsche-powered cars scrambling for position. Wehrlein has the upperhand though, running a position ahead of Dennis in P5.

Lap 29/38: In comes the safety car

Action resumes, and it’s Antonio Felix da Costa in the lead. Oliver Rowland follows in second, but the Nissan drivers makes it known over the radio that he’s “happy where I am”.

Lap 28/38: Ten laps to go

There’s ten laps of racing remaining, but it looks like we could be in for some additional laps to compensate for the time set under the safety car.

Lap 27/38: There’s contact!

Norman Nato attempts to make a move on Sacha Fenestraz, but instead sends them both into the wall. Nato gets going again, but Fenestraz’s race is over. The Nissan driver gives his compatriot a pretty sarcastic round of applause.

The safety car comes back out as the marshalls begin to recover the stricken Nissan.

Lap 23/38: Black and white flag for Rowland

Nissan’s Oliver Rowland receives a black and white flag for driving standards — a warning to reel it in a little.

Despite this, Rowland is doing well. He’s fighting at the front in P2, eight-tenths off of Da Costa.

Lap 20/38: Disaster for Vandoorne

The DS Penske driver locks up, and finds himself lunging up into the inside of Sacha Fenestraz. Vandoorne heads to the pits for a replacement front wing, but his race is now effectively over as he rejoins the pack in P21.

Lap 19/38: The top 10 so far

  • Cassidy
  • Da Costa
  • Rowland
  • Evans
  • Dennis
  • Wehrlein
  • Nato
  • Fenestraz
  • Vergne
  • Vandoorne

Lap 18/38: Close fighting

It’s a tight battle between Porsche and Jaguar up at the front. Nick Cassidy manages a neat and tidy overtake on Wehrlein, reclaiming the race lead.

Lap 16/38: What’s that noise?

It’s the sound of Edoardo Mortara’s front wing scraping along the track. The Mahindra driver picked up damage on Lap 10, but is continuing to make his way around the Tempelhof Circuit, running in P8.

Lap 14/38: The action returns

The green flag waves and the action gets back underway in Berlin. Da Costa manages to maintain his lead ahead of Wehrlein, whilst the two Jaguars follow behind in third and fourth.

Lap 13/38: Poor Gunther

Gunther heads to the pits, bringing his race to an end. That’s the second DNF for the German driver this weekend.

Lap 12/38: Safety Car!

Rotten luck for Max Gunther. The Maserati driver gets caught up in a three-wide tousle for position, taking damage to his front wing and coming to a stop trackside.

The safety car comes out — but it looks like Gunther has managed to get running again.

Lap 10/38: Porsche leads again

Antonio Felix da Costa is in the lead once more, but dips away from the pack to take his second Attack Mode.

The Porsche driver does well to rejoin the front, slipping in just behind Wehrlein to take P2.

Lap 8/38: Cassidy regains the lead

Da Costa takes Attack Mode, and the running order reshuffles yet again. Now Nick Cassidy is back in the lead, but the Porsches are running one after the other, hungry for the race win.

Lap 7/38: Porsche on the charge

Cassidy takes his second Attack Mode, passing the race lead to Mitch Evans. Antonio Felix da Costa is hot on Evans’ heels, his teammate Pascal Wehrlein is just behind him.

Evans’ race engineer points out that neither Porsche driver has taken Attack Mode yet… their race lead could be fleeting.

Lap 4/38: Attack Mode

Just four laps in, and half of the grid have already opted for their first Attack Mode instalment. Wehrlein, however, has opted to take both of his Attack Modes.

Cassidy is back in the lead now, with his teammate Mitch Evans just behind him in second. Evans is still yet to take Attack Mode, but Jaguar finds itself in a favourable position, not unlike the 2024 Monaco E-Prix.

Lap 2/38: Early damage for Wehrlein

Looks like there’s damage for Pascal Wehrlein, as the Porsche driver gets squeezed against the wall in the Lap 1 melee for the race lead.

It doesn’t seem to have held Wehrlein back, though. As Cassidy takes Attack Mode, Wehrlein inherits the lead.

Lap 1/38: Lights out!

It’s a superb start for Nick Cassidy, who snatches the race lead into Turn 1. Jake Dennis finds himself in second, whilst Wehrlein manages to move his way up to P2.

An unpredictable race?

As ever with Formula E, expect the unexpected. We’re just minutes away from lights out now, and all bets are off after yesterday’s action-packed race. Round 10 of the 2024 Formula E championship could go the way of anyone…

Jaguar’s Nick Cassidy will be looking to make it back-to-back victories in Berlin this weekend. Meanwhile, Jake Dennis will be hoping to pick up from where he left off after his incredible recovery drive yesterday, which saw him make it to the front of the pack before a puncture brought his race to an early end.

Starting Grid

Jake Dennis starts on pole — a welcome change for the Andretti driver, who started Saturday’s race from the back of the grid.

Alongside Dennis is Saturday’s race winner Nick Cassidy, with Dennis’ teammate Norman Nato starting just behind in P3. The two German drivers, Maximilian Gunther and Pascal Wehrlein, line up alongside each other in P5 and P6 respectively.
