Edoardo Mortara has inherited his first ever Formula E race win after Sam Bird was penalised for colliding with Andre Lotterer.
“The driver of car two had a direct hit with the right-rear tyre of car 36 resulting in an immediate puncture,” the stewards noted.
“It is acknowledged that the track was damp in certain areas, however car 36 left more than a car width to the inside. As a result, we find that the driver of car two was predominantly to blame for the incident.”
Bird’s penalty drops him to sixth place in the final standings. Behind Mortara, Lucas di Grassi was elevated to second place and Robin Frijns gained a place in the top three. Daniel Abt moves up to fourth place ahead of Felipe Massa.
Mitch Evans, Gary Paffett, Oliver Turvey and Antonio Felix da Costa complete the points scorers.
The stewards also handed Jean-Eric Vergne a five-second time penalty for causing a collision with Tom Dillmann. The penalty makes no difference to his finishing position of 13th. Oliver Rowland, who retired from the race, was cleared of causing a collision at turn six.
