2 min read

Pascal Wehrlein made history by winning the Formula E season’s second Misano E-Prix, becoming the first repeat winner of the season. The victory came unexpectedly as Oliver Rowland encountered last-lap trouble.

Initially, Rowland seemed poised for victory after his teammate Antonio Felix da Costa received a penalty on Saturday, allowing Rowland to secure the win.

However, in Sunday’s race, despite battling energy-saving issues, Rowland managed to take the lead from Wehrlein with five laps remaining and held a comfortable lead into the final lap.

Jake Dennis held onto third place, with Nico Mueller and Nick Cassidy close behind. However, drama unfolded on the final lap as Cassidy overtook Mueller just before the finish line, securing fourth place.

Jake Hughes initially finished fifth but was later penalized, promoting Sergio Sette Camara to fifth place and Jean-Eric Vergne to eighth.
