In the first race, he could not secure the top spot and had to settle for third. However, on Sunday, the German driver proved unstoppable as he secured the first victory for Maserati in Formula E. Let's have a detailed look at the performance of the Maserati Driver and the overall race results.
Jakarta E-Prix: Maximilian Gunther Emerges As the Winner
At the Jakarta E-Prix, Maximilian Gunther helped Maserati to attain its first triumph in Formula E. The German driver outperformed Andretti Formula E competitor Jake Dennis to win the pole position. Mitch Evans of Jaguar TCS Racing came third in the final race. Sunday's race was two laps longer than Saturday's more-or-less flat-out race. Dennis resisted an Evans attack at the start of the race. Whereas, Gunther managed to take off cleanly.
In Sunday's race, the top three maintained their places for the first few laps. When Gunther chose attack mode, he slid to third place momentarily. Following this, Dennis was able to outrun Gunther and seize a position. After switching to attack mode, Evans fell to third from the lead but quickly overtook Gunther and appeared to move for victory. However, Gunther managed to surpass him in the next lap.
Talking about the second round of attack modes, Dennis took the lead, but the German driver surpassed him and sped off into the distance. Evans dropped behind Dennis when he switched to attack mode, losing contact with the top two over time. After the completion of the final race, Nick Cassidy came in 17th, and Pascal Wehrlein, who won the race Saturday, stood in sixth.
