Felix Rosenqvist clinched the second spot in Berlin ePrix, securing the first ever podium for Mahindra Racing. This has been the best result for the team in Formula E since it became a part of the racing series in 2015.

Rosenqvist had qualified for the race in the pole position. He even led the race from start crossing the chequered flag in first position. However, a ten second penalty for an unsafe release into the pit lane cost him the top spot and he was demoted to the second position. Nevertheless, this has so far been the best result for Mahindra Racing, since it first started competing in the Formula E championship back in 2015.

Rosenqvist’s team mate Nick Heidfeld also had an unfortunate incident, wherein a sensor malfunction during qualifiers forced him to the back of the grid. Despite the setback, Heidfield put up a stellar performance, finishing in the 10th spot and scoring a point for his team. Rosenqvist is currently in the third spot in the championship standings, while Heidfield currently holds the fifth position.

As for team standings, Mahindra Racing has narrowed down the gap between itself and the second-placed team to 22 points. The final four races of this season will take place in North America, next month.
