===Vergne's Advantage===
 
Into the Championship and despite missing out on victory in [[2018 Zürich E-Prix|Zürich]], it had been a productive afternoon for [[Sam Bird]], for the Brit had achieved his goal of finishing ahead of Championship leader [[Jean-Éric Vergne]]. Indeed, Bird would head to the season finale just 23 points behind the Frenchman, with 58 still in play. Those two would arrive in New York for the first NYC E-Prix as the only contenders for the title, with Vergne able to take the title with victory, as long as Bird finished second without pole or fastest lap.

Post-Race Test {{{test}}}

The 2018 New York City E-Prix I, otherwise known as the 2018 Qatar Airways New York City E-Prix, was the penultimate round of the 2017/18 ABB FIA Formula E Championship, staged on the Brooklyn Street Circuit in New York City, USA, on 14 July 2018.[1] The first New York City E-Prix of the weekend was staged on an extended version of the Brooklyn Street Circuit, designed to further test the longevity of the FE field.[2]

Jean-Éric Vergne and Sam Bird would enter the race as the main title pretenders, with the Frenchman ahead by 23 points.[3] However a miserable qualifying session for both saw Bird claim fourteenth on the grid, while Vergne was disqualified after using too much power during his flying lap.[3] Pole therefore went to Sébastien Buemi, with Mitch Evans starting alongside.[3]

Buemi would be gifted an instant lead at the start of the race, for Evans broke a driveshaft as he pulled away from the grid, meaning his race was over before he left his grid slot.[4] The field surged around his stranded Jaguar without issue, although Jérôme d'Ambrosio would smash into the back of teammate José María López at the first corner.[4]

The following laps would see the two Audi Sport ABT Schaefflers move through to the head of the field, with Daniel Abt seizing the lead early on with a dive on Buemi.[4] di Grassi would take a few more laps to catch and pass his old rival, before the two Audi's blasted clear.[4]

Elsewhere, Bird managed to fight his way into the top ten without the aid of his teammate Alex Lynn, although the Brit's charge would end as Nick Heidfeld pulled away in eighth.[4] Vergne, meanwhile, would allow himself to be dragged up the order by teammate Lotterer, with the German even managing to barge past Bird as Vergne passed Lynn for eleventh.[4]

Ultimately the title fight was effectively over the moment Vergne dived past Bird on lap seventeen, for the Brit simply could not keep up with the Frenchman.[4] Indeed, Lotterer and Vergne would come in at the end of the first stint in fifth and sixth, while Bird was still stuck behind Heidfeld in eighth.[4]

With a huge advantage over Bird, and no chance of further progress, Lotterer gifted fifth place to Vergne after the stops, moments before Bird was relegated down the order by a dive from Engel.[4] Out front, meanwhile, di Grassi would pull an aggressive move on teammate Abt to snatch the lead, with the German told to hold position after an ambitious lunge almost caused the pair to crash a lap later.[4]

Unfortunately any further fighting was ended by a very long safety car period, caused by Lynn as the Brit slid into the barriers at full throttle through turn five.[4] That accident was bad enough to length the race to the point that it had to be timed, with just three laps left when the field were released.[4]

Ultimately time ran out for Bird to get into the eighth place he required to keep his title hopes alive, meaning Vergne would claim his first FE title with fifth place.[4] Out ahead, meanwhile, di Grassi claimed a memorable victory from furious teammate Abt, while Buemi claimed third for Renault in their penultimate race.[4]

Background

Formula E returned to New York City for the 2017/18 season finale, a change to the original schedule after the mid-season cancellation of the Montreal E-Prix.[5] Regardless, the Brooklyn Street Circuit near the harbour would be re-imagined for the 2018 visit, with around half a kilometre of circuit added after the start line.[6] The new section included a left hander followed by three 90° rights and an additional sweep onto the back straight, with the aim of increasing the number of overtaking opportunities.[6]

Five Star Teams

There was some news regarding the upcoming 2018/19 season ahead of the opening New York E-Prix, with e.Dams announcing that Nicolas Prost would leave the team at the end of the season.[7] Indeed, with the impending arrival of Nissan to partner e.Dams for season five, Prost would follow his father Alain out of the team, whom had sold his stake in the squad earlier in the season.[7] In truth it had been a fairly torrid campaign for Prost in comparison to teammate Sébastien Buemi, with the Frenchman yet to finish higher than eighth.[7]

Elsewhere, Venturi were completing their plans for Season Five, with a shuffle set to be made to their key staff.[8] Indeed, having recently announced that Felipe Massa would be racing for them, and that parent company Venturi Automobiles would be supplying the new Team HWA effort, the Monegasque squad revealed that Susie Wolff would be taking over as team principle for 2018/19.[8] An ex-DTM racer and wife of Mercedes motorsport C.E.O. Toto Wolff, Susie Wolff was a popular figure in the motorsport world, set to take over the race day operations for Venturi.[8] It was also revealed shortly before the New York E-Prix that Tom Dillmann would replace Edoardo Mortara for the 2017/18 season finale, with the Italian-Swiss racer otherwise occupied in the DTM.[9]

Sanya Surprise

There would also be news of the 2018/19 calendar, with the second "TBA" listed on the provisional calendar filled shortly before the trip to New York. On 3 July 2018 it was revealed that the Chinese city of Sanya would be taking up the 23 March 2019 slot on the season five calendar, meaning FE would return to "mainland" China for the first time since 2015.[10] The circuit itself would be carved out of the city streets, located on the southern tip of Hainan Island, located on the coast of the South China Sea.[10]

Le Mans Lessons

Away from the FE Series itself and FE's sister series, the FIA World Endurance Championship staged its blue-riband event, the 24 Hours of Le Mans.[11] The race featured several 2017/18 FE drivers, with 2015/16 Champion Sébastien Buemi ultimately winning the race outright for Toyota, alongside Fernando Alonso and Kazuki Nakajima.[11] Elsewhere, Championship leader Jean-Éric Vergne won the LMP2 class for G-Drive, José María López finished second behind Buemi, André Lotterer finished fourth overall, while Sam Bird and Alex Lynn finished well down in the GTE-Pro field.[11] The latter two did at least see the finish, however, unlike Andretti duo Stéphane Sarrazin and António Félix da Costa, and Oliver Turvey, whom all retired well before the chequered flag.

Vergne's Advantage

Into the Championship and despite missing out on victory in Zürich, it had been a productive afternoon for Sam Bird, for the Brit had achieved his goal of finishing ahead of Championship leader Jean-Éric Vergne. Indeed, Bird would head to the season finale just 23 points behind the Frenchman, with 58 still in play. Those two would arrive in New York for the first NYC E-Prix as the only contenders for the title, with Vergne able to take the title with victory, as long as Bird finished second without pole or fastest lap.

Other scenarios that could see Vergne claim the title revolved around him scoring seven points more than Bird during the penultimate race. In contrast, Bird could take the title lead if he claimed victory, although the best possible margin the Brit could hold over the Frenchman would be six points. Indeed, the FE Championship was unpredictable at the best of times, and with Bird having won twice in New York back in 2017, he still had a real chance of claiming the title.

In the Teams Championship things were equally confusing, with one of Techeetah, Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler or DS Virgin Racing still in contention to claim the title. It was the former that still led the way with 219 points, although the German squad had closed the gap to 33 points heading into the finale. For DS Virgin things were more tricky, with the Anglo-French effort some 62 points behind, and so would need a near perfect weekend in New York to claim a maiden title.

Furthermore, like their driver Vergne, Techeetah could wrap up the title with a race to spare, should they outscore Audi by fourteen points on the day. Likewise, Audi Sport ABT Sportsline could take the title lead with a one-two finish, with Techeetah scoring less than fourteen points, with the most likely scenario being that the fight headed into the final day. DS Virgin, meanwhile, could only try and hang on in the first NYC E-Prix, with even a perfect score for them only able to close the gap to Techeetah to fifteen points, if the Chinese backed effort failed to score.

Practice

FP1

FP2

Qualifying

Qualifying in New York City would follow the conventional pattern establish in 2017/18, with the field split into four groups of five based on Championship position.[13] Each group would then get six minutes to set a single full power (200kwh) lap, with the top five overall then proceeding to the Super Pole Shootout.[13] Each drive in the top five would then go out, one-by-one, to set a second lap to try and grab pole, with the rest of the field arranged based on their times from the group stage.[13]

Group 1

Group one would see the title fight take precedence, with Jean-Éric Vergne and Sam Bird going head-to-head right at the start of qualifying.[13] They were also among the favourites to make it Super Pole, although no-one was sure how the Brooklyn Street Circuit would develop given track temperatures were on the rise.[13] Elsewhere, Lucas di Grassi and Sébastien Buemi continued to fight for the right to be third, with Felix Rosenqvist hoping to rediscover his early season form.[13]

It was a long wait for any of the top five drivers in the Championship to head out onto the circuit, resulting in a somewhat inevitable scramble, as one, onto the circuit.[14] Indeed it was Rosenqvist whom led the mad scramble out of the pits, only for di Grassi and Bird to shoot past on the warm-up lap.[14] There was then a curious incident as the Brazilian backed up the field heading into the final corner, with the resulting traffic jam almost causing Vergne to missout setting a full power lap.[14]

All five would remain glued together during the flying laps, with di Grassi flashing across the line to record a 1:14.325.[14] His effort was good enough to edge out Bird, before being almost instantly beaten by Buemi and Vergne, the latter going fastest overall.[14] In the middle of the train came Rosenqvist, although a mistake during his lap ensured that the Swede was destined for a grid slot at the back of the field.[14]

Group 2

The second quintet of the afternoon featured those placed sixth to tenth in the Championship, although there would be an early casualty from the group.[13] Indeed, a heavy accident for Oliver Turvey during FP2 saw him left with a hand injury, with NIO opting not to replace the Brit for qualifying.[13] That meant that Daniel Abt, Mitch Evans, André Lotterer and Nelson Piquet Jr. had a little more room on circuit to qualify, and opened up another potential spot in Super Pole.[13]

Evans led the second group onto the circuit, far earlier than those in the first had appeared, and duly managed to go second overall with a clean effort.[14] Unfortunately for him Vergne's teammate Lotterer was in fine form, and duly relegated the Kiwi to third as he put his Techeetah up to second.[14] Abt then squeezed ahead of Evan's Jaguar, while the Kiwi's teammate Piquet completed the group by slotting in behind Buemi.[14]

Group 3

Alex Lynn was the standout name from the third group of the session, the Brit having claimed pole in New York back in 2017.[13] Yet, the Brit's poor recent form suggest that it could be a struggle, with Nick Heidfeld and Jérôme d'Ambrosio particularly strong qualifiers.[13] Completing the group would be Maro Engel and António Félix da Costa, although they could only entertain hopes of a spot in the top ten at best.[13]

As d'Ambrosio and Engel headed out onto the circuit to queue the start of group three news emerged that the two Techeetahs of Vergne and Lotterer were under investigation for a power infringement.[14] This quickly turned to news of their disqualification from the results, with both cars deemed to have used more than the alotted amount of power during the session.[14] Indeed, the issue had been the result of a software update implemented to improve reliability, but had caused the power output to spike above the permitted maximum.[14]

On track, meanwhile, both d'Ambrosio and Engel suddenly found themselves in the hunt for Super Pole, with the former duly slithering through to claim third overall with the removal of the two Techeetahs.[14] Engel's lap was also promising until a mistake in the final sector cost him time.[14] Lynn and Heidfeld were next, both missing out on a spot in the top ten, while da Costa slapped the wall on the exit of turn fourteen as he slotted in behind the Brit.[14]

Group 4

Into the final quintet and Nicolas Prost was the headline act, with the Frenchman needing a strong start to the afternoon to tempt a team to sign him for 2018/19.[13] He would be joined by four others in a similar situation, although José María López the strongest of his opponents.[13] The returning Tom Dillmann also found himself in the group alongside Stéphane Sarrazin, with Luca Filippi completing the quintet.[13]

Sarrazin led the final group out onto the circuit ahead of Super Pole, although the Frenchman would destroy his lap by sliding into the barriers at the turn eleven/twelve chicane.[14] Sarrazin had locked his rear axle and run wide through the first part, before side slamming into the inside wall of turn twelve, smashing the right hand side of his car.[14] Fortunately the Frenchman managed to drag his ruined car away without the need to stop the session, although Dillmann almost collected him as he charged towards the final corner.[14]

Indeed, Dillmann put in a strong effort to claim seventh at the time of completing his lap, only for López to nick his spot a few moments later.[14] Prost then caused a stir by leaping into the top five, slotting in just between teammate Buemi and Piquet, while Filippi ended the session fifteenth overall.[14]

Super Pole

Into the Super Pole shootout and it was Prost whom got things underway, although his calm, steady lap would look very vulnerable as he nestled himself into the 1:14.900s.[14] Buemi went next and duly set the fastest "official" lap of the session, a 1:13.911 seeing the Swiss racer suddenly establish himself as favourite for pole.[14] d'Ambrosio went next but a mistake in the harbour complex ultimately saw him fall shy of Prost to make it a Renault e.Dams one-two.[14]

It was then Evan's turn to hit the circuit in New York, although his lap was instantly ruined by a minor mistake through the turn three/four chicane.[14] He therefore managed to split the two Renaults, before Abt made his way onto the circuit for Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler.[14] Yet, even the fastest man in the group stages could not challenge Buemi's time, with a huge rear lock-up into turn six destroying Abt's lap.[14] The German carried on to secure fifth as Buemi celebrated pole.[14]

Race

It was a hot afternoon in New York City ahead of the penultimate race of the 2017/18 season, with the air temperature hitting 31°C, while the track was a baking 45°C.[16] Indeed, the high air temperatures would cause some issues with battery cooling, while the high tarmac temps ensured that the Michelin tyres would be tested more than ever before.[16] Regardless, Sébastien Buemi would lead the nineteen strong field onto the grid, with Oliver Turvey officially withdrawn due to the injuries he sustained in FP2.[16]

Report

Buemi would ultimately be gifted an immediate lead at the start of the E-Prix, for fellow front row starter Mitch Evans only covered a yard before a driveshaft failure ended his afternoon.[16] The Kiwi's was left crawling towards a gap in the barriers as the field surged around his Jaguar, with Jérôme d'Ambrosio getting sideways as he dodged around the limping car.[16] This allowed the Belgian's teammate José María López to dive in front of him into the first corner, only for d'Ambrosio to slam into the back of his teammate, ripping the front wing from his car and the rear wing off of López's machine.[16]

As the two Dragons limed around holding up the field Alex Lynn was on the move, the Brit driving around the outside of António Félix da Costa at turn one, the opening lap actually being a lap and a half due to the positioning of the start and finish lines.[16] His title pretending teammate would follow him through at the second visit to turn six on the opening tour, while Championship leader Jean-Éric Vergne found himself stuck at the back of the pack.[16] Up ahead, meanwhile, Nicolas Prost had to defend heavily to keep Daniel Abt at bay, but ultimately had to relent to the German as he scythed his Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler inside of the Renault e.Dams into turn six.[16]

Come the end of the opening lap it was still Buemi leading, although with Abt in his mirrors that seemed likely to change in the following laps.[16] Prost was next with a fast starting Nelson Piquet Jr., a promising fourth for Jaguar with Evans already out, while Tom Dillmann was an impressive fifth.[16] At the back, meanwhile, Bird was stuck behind teammate Lynn in twelfth, Felix Rosenqvist down in sixteenth, and Vergne still last on track with López heading to the pits to change his rear wing.[16]

The early stages would see Prost fall back down the field, with Piquet and Dillmann surging past on lap two as Abt inched towards Buemi out front.[16] Elsewhere, Bird was on the war-path, scything past teammate Lynn, who ultimately let him through without issue, and d'Ambrosio whom was forced to stop at the end of lap three for a new front wing.[16] A few laps later and Lucas di Grassi moved into the top six by diving around the outside of Maro Engel into turn eleven/twelve, while André Lotterer and Vergne were starting to climb through the field at the back.[16]

Out front Buemi was coming under severe pressure from Abt, with the German plotting where to make his move as he pulled onto the back of the Swiss racer.[16] Ultimately, the Audi racer would send his car lunging inside the Renault into the turn eleven/twelve chicane, before instantly blasting clear with the lead.[16] Elsewhere Dillmann went charging past Piquet to snatch third, Bird was up in the top ten and chasing Nick Heidfeld for eighth, and Vergne was steadily moving up the field as Lotterer closed in on Bird.[16]

Indeed, the latter's progress was bad news for Bird's title hopes and, as Vergne swept past Lynn to move into eleventh, Lotterer pounced on Bird to relegate the Brit to tenth.[16] With Vernge now in behind his title rival Lotterer went charging off to catch Heidfeld, who found himself stuck behind Engel, with Bird trying hard to go with the German and stay ahead of Vergne.[16] Indeed, Vergne himself was in a fighting mood, having already thrown his arm in the air to wave in anger at Rosenqvist after the Swede blocked him a few laps earlier.[16]

Back with the leaders and di Grassi was now scything towards Buemi, the Brazilian easing past Piquet and Dillmann without resistance before cruising up to the back of his arch-rival.[16] Yet, before any move could be mustered a huge shift in the Championship fight was unfolding behind, for Vergne had lunged past Bird into turn six, with the Brit ultimately having to relent as the Frenchman charged inside his Virgin.[16] Moments later and Heidfeld finally forced his way past Engel, opening the door for Vergne's teammate Lotterer to try and take the Venturi himself as he dragged Vergne further up the order.[16]

The two Techeetahs worked together beautifully to climb through the top ten, with Lotterer's moves always gifting Vernge a chance to charge past at the following overtaking point.[16] Indeed, neither Engel nor Prost, whom had had Heidfeld barge past shortly after the German had leapt ahead of Engel, could resist, while Bird found himself stuck behind the Venturi, still lacking the pace to push on.[16] The only driver to resist their attentions for any length of time would be the aforementioned Heidfeld, although their inevitable move was overshadowed by the fact that di Grassi had gone diving inside of Buemi into turn six to claim second on lap twenty.[16]

With that, and barring a late move by Bird to finally move back into tenth, the pitwindow opened, with the entire field except Stéphane Sarrazin pitting at the end of lap twenty-two.[16] In the chaos that ensued from the double sided garage layout Rosenqvist was caught out, the Swede having to stop in the middle of the pitlane as he avoided teammate Heidfeld.[16] That cost the Swede a huge amount of time although he did at least get back in action, unlike Piquet who came out of the points in fourth ahead of Dillmann, only to suffer the exact same failure as teammate Evans and stop on pit-exit.[16]

After the stops di Grassi would charge hard to catch teammate Abt to take the lead, and duly caught onto the back of the German as Piquet's car was pushed aside.[16] However, di Grassi's lunge for the lead would cause some controversy within the Audi team, for the Brazilian ran right into the back of Abt through the new Harbour complex, before easing Abt towards the barriers at the turn eleven/twelve chicane.[16] Indeed, it was a very aggressive move made by di Grassi as he snatched the lead at the turn eleven/twelve chicane, with Abt responding with an unbroadcastable radio message that lasted for more than a minute.[16]

Looking to get revenge on his teammate's aggressive and "disrespectful" move, Abt threw a huge lunge at di Grassi into turn six on the following lap, although di Grassi swatted the move aside.[16] However, Audi team principle Allan McNish decided was enough was enough, and duly ordered his drivers to hold position.[16] A furious Abt came over the radio to tell them what he thought of the order, but obeyed as the pair continued to sprint clear of Buemi in third.[16]

With things calming down out front the Championship fight was also coming to an end, for Bird was falling away from Heidfeld in eighth, while Vergne was behind Lotterer in fifth.[16] That fifth position would hand the Frenchman the title, and with sixteen laps to go the German racer handed Vergne the position into turn six, moments before Bird was relegated to tenth by Engel.[16] However, as Engel made his dive Bird's teammate Lynn suffered a huge accident, spearing the barriers at turn five, the Brit having lost the rear of his Virgin heading through the flatout right hander.[16]

The appearance of the safety car ultimately caused the race to become a timed event, with the field ultimately released on the 38th lap with three minutes to run.[16] In the middle of the confusion of the safety car Heidfeld had got ahead of Lotterer, and duly attacked Vergne to try and take fifth from the Frenchman at the restart.[16] Bird was also on the war-path by trying to advantage of Engel's early attack on Prost, although everything ultimately went Vergne's way as the Frenchman held off Heidfeld for fifth.[16]

Both Engel and Bird would manage to get ahead of Prost in the final moments of the race, although ninth place, with Vergne in fifth, was not enough for Bird to continue the title fight.[16] Knowing this, the Brit tried hard to pass Engel on the final lap, but would run out of time as di Grassi swept home to claim victory from his teammate Abt.[16] Indeed, with Vergne still fifth and Bird falling shy of Engel's eighth place the Championship was Vergne's, with the Frenchman emotionally dedicating his victory to fallen friend Jules Bianchi.[16]

Milestones

Standings

Fifth place was enough for Jean-Éric Vergne to claim his maiden FE crown, for Sam Bird ended the afternoon 33 points behind the Frenchman with only 29 available in Sunday's race. Indeed, the Brit's miserable performance left him on the verge of losing second, for Lucas di Grassi had moved within 16 points of the Brit, and with arguably the fastest car in New York. Sébastien Buemi was in fourth ahead of Daniel Abt, whom had knocked Felix Rosenqvist out of the top five.

In contrast the title fight in the Teams' Championship was well an truly alive, with Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler closing the gap to Techeetah at the head of the field. Indeed, with just five points separating the two the title fight was wide open, with those two the class of the field based on raw pace. Elsewhere, DS Virgin Racing were hanging onto third ahead of Mahindra Racing and Renault e.Dams, with the latter slipping ahead of Jaguar Racing to break the top five.
