Sao Paulo, Brazil– The ABB FIA Formula E World Championship’s second vitsit to Brazil kept its promises and was full of action. The fourth race of Season 10 got off to an impressive start with JEV making it through to the semifinal round in qualifying and Stoffel pushing into the finals. Their efforts were rewarded with JEV starting P3 and Stoffel on the front row in P2 .

 On this blistering hot Saturday in Sao Paulo the crowd was treated to quite a race. Both DS PENSKE drivers showed their amazing warrior mindset and their racecraft from start to finish. Under an intense Brazilian heat wave, our drivers did everything possible to keep cool. Their confidence and skills limited their damage when accidents happened ahead of them.

 With 10 solid points in the pocket, DS PENSKE stands P3 in the Team Championship. The strong qualifiying sessions over the race weekend leave Team wanting more. Phil Charles, DS PENSKE Deputy Team Principal, commented that ‘bringing both cars home in the points is important for our Championship aspirations, P7 and P8 feels like we did not achieve our full potential today. We should all not underestimate how difficult these peloton-style races can be. We take away lots of learnings to come back stronger next time.’

 After 4 amazing races on 3 different continents, the team looks forward to heading to Tokyo, Japan for Round 5 on March 30, 2024. This marks the first time the all electric series has visitied the Land of the Rising Sun and also the first ever street race in Tokyo. The entire DS PENSKE crew along with partner DS Automobiles will be aiming to continue this strong momentum.

Stoffel Vandoorne, 2022 Formula E World Champion

‘Today was a bitter-sweet for the team. Went too early with attack mode, we ended up in the middle of the pack with no pace to progress. I prefer to have led and taken control of the race for sure. The positive is that we had a very strong quali, we have work to do before Japan but the potential is definitely here.’

 Jean-Eric Vergne, 2018 & 2019 Formula E Champion

‘I was expecting better, disappointing race, strategy was not the best, however we are going to take the positive from this weekend which is a strong qualifying session for both cars and good points for the team.’
