Motor racing: Formula E set for title showdown in New York

(Reuters) – The all-electric Formula E title will be decided in Sunday’s season finale after series leader Jean-Eric Vergne failed to score in the first of two races in New York.

The French reigning champion, driving for the Techeetah team, heads into the last race 22 points clear of Audi’s Brazilian Lucas Di Grassi and 25 ahead of Jaguar’s New Zealander Mitch Evans.

Sebastien Buemi, winner of Saturday’s eventful race from pole position for Nissan to take his first victory in more than two years, is 26 points behind Vergne and the fourth driver still in mathematical contention.

Vergne, still favorite to become the series’ first multiple champion, collided with Brazilian Felipe Massa on the last lap of the Brooklyn street circuit on Saturday.

He had earlier being hit from behind by German team mate Andre Lotterer, causing a puncture.

“I got involved in a lot of crashes that were not really my fault, but that’s part of motorsport, you have good days and bad days,” Vergne said on Saturday.

“Today was clearly a bad one but I still have a good lead into tomorrow’s final. Everything has to be done tomorrow.”
