2023 BERLIN E-PRIX
ROUNDS SEVEN & EIGHT | 21 - 23 APRIL
It was a double race weekend for Jake Hughes in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship as rounds seven and eight took place in Berlin.
Jake finished the round seven qualifying session in P12.
On a mission to add some points to his tally, Jake was making steady progress before an unavoidable incident involving a number of rivals forced him to retire from the race due to damage.
Qualifying round 8 followed on Sunday, with Jake once again qualifying ahead of his teammate, this time in P15.
It wasn't to be a weekend to remember for Jake, who went on to finish the race in P18.
Jake remains in 10th position in the Drivers' Championship, with his NEOM McLaren Formula E Team P6 in the Teams' Championship with 72 points.
The next round of ABB FIA Formula E will see the teams and drivers head to Monaco in May.
Watch the round seven and eight race highlights and full classified race results.
JAKE'S RACE REVIEW:
“It’s been a tricky day and weekend overall. We came into the weekend with a bit of a handicap and the track provides a certain style of racing which doesn’t suit us. I think I was also guilty of trying to race faster cars today which I ended up paying for massively in energy. Not trying to race them felt a bit defeatist, so I tried, but sadly it didn’t pay off. “We know the limitation we have at the moment and we’re trying to solve it. I'm proud of all the team in the garage, in Bicester and in Woking for all the work they’re doing. We now go to a few tracks which should be a bit better for us so hopefully we can get back to scoring points.”
