DS PENSKE celebrates a double points finish in today’s Jakarta E-Prix, with an outstanding performance from both Stoffel Vandoorne and Jean Eric Vergne to cross the line P4 and P5.

 With this strong result, the team secures the joint fourth number of points in the team standings and in the drivers championship, JEV moves up to fourth.

 For today’s shorter 36-lap sprint-style race, the DS E TENSE FE23’s performance proved competitive from the outset, with both drivers qualifying efforts placing them in the duels. After competing against each other in the quarter final, JEV moved forward to the semi-final where he qualified fourth. Stoffel qualified fifth.

 Stoffel had a strong start and gained position up to P2. Ultimately, his race today ended in a respectable fourth place and confirmed his return to the front of the grid. Starting from fourth on the dirty side of the track, JEV defended well in hot conditions to finish fifth and climbed back up to 4th place in the Drivers’Championship.

 The team is looking forward to returning to the track tomorrow for the second opportunity to fight for a podium in Jakarta, in Round 11 of the championship. DS PENSKE is within reach of the Top 3 in the Teams’ standings.


Team results – 2023 Jakarta E-Prix Round 10

















  Stoffel Vandoorne, reigning Formula E world champion

‘P4 today. I would say it was probably the maximum possible. Fourth and fifth for the team is good points overall. We had an OK qualifying again for both cars. This track is extremely challenging with the heat and the tyre management. There are obviously always things we can do a little bit better, but we were in a good position for the race and I feel we executed the race well. I had a great start and got myself into P3, but ultimately it felt like we were maybe lacking a little bit of pace to keep up the fight for a podium position. So, we just had to secure good points and make sure we bring the car home. We’ll have another go tomorrow and hope for it to be a little bit better.’

 Jean-Eric Vergne, Formula E Champion in 2018 and 2019

‘Overall, a positive day. Starting on the dirty side of the track made me lose a position that I couldn’t gain back afterwards, so fifth was the best I could do today. They were very tricky conditions, the track was dirty and I had very little grip. So, it was probably one of the toughest races in terms of trying to keep the car on the track. It was challenging. But overall, it was a good number of points for the team so that’s the positive and we keep moving forward.’
