Nelson Piquet Jr took a commanding first Formula E win on the streets of Long Beach to become the series’ sixth winner in six races.
The Brazilian took the lead by catching pole-sitter Daniel Abt by surprise into the tight first chicane on lap one, and from there he was always in control of the race.
His early lead was wiped out twice due to the safety car being called, but Piquet was able to build the gap again at each restart, going on to take victory 35 years on from his father’s maiden Formula 1 win at the same venue.
