I n the first six races of the 2015 Formula E season there were six different winners. In the seventh race, this series was finished by Sebastien Buemi. The former Formula 1 and current Toyota WEC driver grabbed victory at the ePrix in Monaco in his eDams racing car.

Mass crash after the start in Monaco

It was after the first Place in Punta del Este /Uruguay, his second success in the new electric racing series. For the triumph in the principality, Buemi scored 25 points. In addition, he added three more points to his account by taking pole position.

The spectators experienced the excitement of the race as soon as the lights turned green. While the four first-placed Buemi, Lucas di Grassi, Jerome D'Ambrosio and Nelson Piquet Junior stayed out of the mess, a mass collision ensued behind them.

Nicolas Prost pushed Daniel Abt into the exit of turn two Guardrail. As a result, Bruno Senna rushed into the damaged Abt racer, flew over the side box and landed for a moment at a 90-degree angle on the asphalt before his e-racer had contact with the road again with all four wheels. Jaime Alguersuari, Vitantonio Liuzzi, Salvador Duran, Jean-Eric Vergne, Loic Duval and Nick Heidfeld suffered further sheet metal damage.

Di Grassi tries 'Undercut'

After the restart, Buemi checked what was happening. Di Grassi tried to pull past the Swiss with an early compulsory pit stop, during which the car had to be changed, but failed. After 47 laps, the championship leader had to be content with second place. Nelson Piquet took the final podium. Sam Bird and D’Ambrosio rounded off the top 5. Nick Heidfeld, who finished eleventh, remained without points.

In the drivers' standings, di Grassi (93) leads just ahead of Prost (89) and Buemi (83). The next Formula E race will take place in Berlin on May 23rd.
