Post-Race Test

The 2021 Rome E-Prix I, formally the 2021 FIA Formula E Rome E-Prix was the third round of the 2020/21 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, staged at the Circuito Cittadino dell’EUR in Esposizione Universale Roma, Rome, Italy, on 10 April 2021.[1] The race, which was the first of two planned to be held in Rome, was held on a lengthened version of the established Rome circuit with half of the original circuit replaced to form the second longest circuit in FE history.[2]

Qualifying for the first Rome E-Prix since 2019 would see Stoffel Vandoorne storm to pole position, albeit after Oliver Rowland threw away an almost certain bid for pole by slapping the wall at the final corner.[3] The Brit, who had topped the group stage by a comfortable margin, would end up in third after smashing his right-rear suspension on the outside wall, meaning André Lotterer would line-up alongside Vandoorne on the front row.[3]

Rain while the field assembled on the grid ensured that race control would opt to start the race behind the Safety Car, with the field completing two laps of the EUR circuit before the race got underway.[4] After the sighting laps the race got fully underway with the circuit still damp in places, with Vandoorne leading the field away down the hill out of the first corner.[4]

Lotterer, however, was the man to watch, and duly lunged down the inside of the Belgian racer as they braked for turn seven, resulting in contact that sent both into the barriers.[4] They would both scramble back onto the circuit in the midfield as Rowland assumed the lead, although the Brit barely had time to settle before he was sent into the pits to serve a penalty for power overuse.[4]

With Rowland gone the race lead was handed to Lucas di Grassi, although the Brazilian racer had Jean-Éric Vergne crawling all over his tail, with Robin Frijns and Championship leader Nyck de Vries also in close attendance.[4] Behind the two Jaguars were fighting with the Porsches, with Sam Bird ultimately emerging ahead of that quartet, before Lotterer was penalised for causing the collision with Vandoorne.[4]

As the race wore on the battle became a tactical one, with the use of Attack Mode by the leaders constantly shuffling the order until they had all used their two boosts.[4] That shuffle would see Vergne claim the lead from di Grassi, Bird in third after a stunning move on Frijns, while Vandoorne fought with de Vries and Mitch Evans after they all moved ahead of Frijns.[4]

With five minutes to go di Grassi reclaimed the lead with a late lunge on Vergne, although within a lap the Brazilian race was over, with the #11 Audi coasting through turns five and six with a broken driveshaft.[4] The rest of the field came thundering past, only for Vandoorne to get out of shape by hitting a bump and hitting the wall, before teammate de Vries punted the back of the #5 Mercedes and sent Vandoorne spinning into the opposite wall.[4]

With Vandoorne, di Grassi and ultimately de Vries all stopping on track the race was brought under the control of the Safety Car once again, which would stay out until the chequered flag was thrown.[4] Vergne therefore claimed victory ahead of Bird and Evans, while Frijns secured fourth ahead of Sébastien Buemi and René Rast.[4] Pascal Wehrlein was next up ahead of Lotterer, who subsequently fell to the back with his time penalty, leaving Alex Lynn, Maximilian Günther and Tom Blomqvist as the remaining scorers.[4]

Background

For the third round of the inaugural FIA Formula E World Championship the class of 2020/21 would settle into the Esposizione Universale Roma within Rome, Italy, with the paddock nestled in the shadow of the Piazzle delle Nazioni Unite.[1] However, there would be some heavy revisions to the Rome circuit, with over half of the circuit replaced for the 2021 visit to the Italian capital.[2] Indeed, the pits would be relocated to the Piazzale, the second sector lengthened to run past the Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana, and the final sector heavily revised to run around the Obelisco di Marconi.[2]

On 26 March it was announced that the Rome E-Prix would be a double header, in-spite of lockdowns being imposed in Italy amid fears of a third wave of infections in the Covid-19 Pandemic.[5]

Mini Marvel

Ahead of the Rome E-Prix it was announced that FE would be changing its Safety Car for the Rome round, after BMW had supplied the series with various iterations of their BMW i8 sports car since the inaugural 2014/15 season.[6] Instead, BMW owned brand Mini would supply the series' Safety Car in Rome, with the MINI Electric Pacesetter unveiled on 30 March 2021 with a deal to use the Mini as the Safety Car at select rounds of the 2020/21 championship.[6] The German owned British marque would use its FE appearances to promote its John Cooper Works range of cars, with the Pacesetter having been co-developed between Mini and BMW Motorsport.[6]

Gen 3 Graces

Elsewhere, Nissan announced that they would commit to the FE Championship through to and into the Generation 3 ruleset, meaning they became the third manufacturer to commit to the championship beyond 2021/22.[7] Their commitment came after the Japanese manufacturer reaffirmed its pledge to be carbon neutral by 2050, and would serve as the flagship race programme for the company as it moved to only sell electric vehicles in the early 2030s.[7] The news would be somewhat soured, however, by the announcement that the Japanese marque would not field its new IM03 powertrain in Rome, after supply issues due to the ongoing Covid-19 Pandemic meant that e.Dams did not have enough parts to field the updated design.[8]

Another manufacturer to unveil their future plans were Porsche, with the German marque also deciding to commit to the Gen 3 ruleset before the deadline on 31 March 2021.[9] Porsche planned, like Nissan, to make FE one of their flagship racing programmes amid a general shift towards electrification, and would highlight the fact that manufacturers were involved in generating the rulebook as a reason for remaining in the Championship.[9]

On the eve of the Rome race weekend it was revealed that Jaguar had agreed to race under the Gen 3 ruleset, although the British marque would not make an official announcement until later in the season.[10] Like Porsche, Jaguar would continue to use FE as a flagship programme for their step into the world of electric vehicles, with their 'Reimagine Programme' set to come into force in 2025 during the planned Gen 3 lifecycle.[10]

Finally, Mercedes-Benz made the unexpected decision to delay their decision whether to commit to the Gen 3 ruleset before the initial deadline on 31 March 2021, despite a near universal belief that they would remain in the series.[11] Mercedes cited questions over ongoing negotiations between FE, the FIA and Teams over the rulebook and budget caps set to introduced alongside the Gen 3 ruleset, although conceded that they were 'encouraged' by the negotiations.[11] A final decision by the German marque was set to be made later on in the spring of 2021, although the decision not to sign-up before 31 March 2021 meant that Mercedes could potentially suffer delays in getting data from FE's universal suppliers Spark, Hankook and Williams Advanced Engineering with regards to the Gen 3 car when it began testing.[11]

Monte Carlo Marvels

Elsewhere, there was news regarding FE's trip to Monte Carlo, with the ongoing discussions about which layout of the legendary street circuit FE would use for its return in 2021.[12] On the eve of the Rome E-Prix it was revealed that the full Circuit de Monaco layout was the most likely option for FE, after an earlier announcement that FE would use its own "E-Prix" variant used since 2015.[12] There would, however, be a minor modifications made to the full Monaco circuit for FE's visit, with the Grand Hotel Hairpin widened for the Attack Mode activation zone to be implemented, while there were questions over whether there would be further revisions at Sainte Devote, the Nouvelle Chicane and Anthony Nogues.[12]

Dragon Racing, meanwhile, hinted that their new-for-2020/21 car, the Penske EV-5, would likely make its debut at the Monaco round, instead of its planned debut in Rome.[13] The delay was due to Dragon wanting to further analyse the data that they had gathered regarding their updated powertrain in testing, with driver Sérgio Sette Câmara declaring that the Dragon had to be '100% sure in its [the car's] ability to improve in every single aspect.'[13]

Night Moves

The post-race shuffles due to penalties amid the late-race chaos at the 2021 Diriyah E-Prix II had ensured that Nyck de Vries ended the opening round of the season as the Championship leader, with the Dutchman ending the weekend on 32 points after two races. Sam Bird, meanwhile, had leapt from second to last to second with victory, seven off of de Vries, while Robin Frijns was up to third after his own fourteen position ascent. Edoardo Mortara, meanwhile, had only slipped to fourth despite not starting the second race in Diriyah, while António Félix da Costa completed the top five.

In the Teams' Championship it was Jaguar Racing who had emerged as the leaders leaving Diriyah, the British squad's two podiums including a win leaving them on 40 points as the dust and sand settled. They hence overhauled day one leaders Mercedes-EQ Formula E Team, who fell four behind their British rivals, while Envision Virgin were up to third as the best customer team. Dragon/Penske were next up in fourth ahead of the factory Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler entry, while BMW i Andretti Motorsport were the only team that had failed to score in either Diriyah race.

Practice

FP1

FP2

Qualifying

Qualifying for the 2021 Rome E-Prix I would be conducted in FE's standard format, with the field split into four groups of six cars, based on Championship position.[3] The first group would feature those in the top six in the Championship and so on, with each group getting six minutes on track to set a full 250 kW lap.[3] The top six overall would then progress to the Super Pole shootout, getting one final lap at full power to try and claim pole position.[3]

After the session a point would be handed to the fastest driver in the Group Stage, while three were to be awarded to the winner of Super Pole.[3]

Group 1

Group one in Rome would feature the top six drivers in the Championship standings before the race weekend, and was hence headlined by Championship leader Nyck de Vries.[15] The Dutchman would be joined by Sam Bird and Mitch Evans in the two Jaguars, as well as Edoardo Mortara in the sister, Venturi run Mercedes.[15] Also on track would be reigning Champion António Félix da Costa, debuting the new DS Techeetah powertrain, as well as Robin Frijns in the Envision Virgin run Audi.[15]

Dark clouds would gather over the extended Circuito Cittadino dell’EUR, resulting in a few spots of rain to dampen the circuit as the drivers filtered out of the pitlane.[16] First on track would be Frijns, with the Dutchman ultimately the only driver in the sextet to opt to complete a warm-up lap.[16] As a result the Dutchman would actually end up as the fourth driver in the queue to set a full power lap, with de Vries, Evans and da Costa ahead, Bird behind, and Mortara stuck in the pitlane with a rear bodywork issue.[16]

Mortara ultimately ran out of time to get out on circuit, meaning he would slip back into the pitlane as de Vries started his flying lap.[16] The Dutchman duly threw his #17 Mercedes around the Rome circuit with his usual vigour, surviving a slide at turn seventeen to go fastest, with Evans brushing the wall exiting turn four in a failed bid to overhaul him.[16] da Costa, in contrast, would whack the wall and damage his suspension at turn fourteen, ruining his run, while Frijns would set a new benchmark after a clean run with Bird slotting into third behind de Vries.[16]

Group 2

The second sextet of the afternoon saw those positioned seventh through twelfth in the Championship join the fray, which as a result of the chaotic opening rounds had a surprise list of names.[15] Favourite from the group would quali-ace Oliver Rowland in the #22 Nissan e.Dams, as well as René Rast and Pascal Wehrlein in the first of the factory Audi and Porsche entries respectively.[15] They would then be joined by the unfancied #8 NIO of Oliver Turvey, as well as the Dragon/Penske duo of Sérgio Sette Câmara and Nico Müller.[15]

Ahead of the second group news emerged that Turvey would not be taking part, the #8 NIO so heavily damaged after the accident he caused at the end of FP1 that the Brit's car was unlikely to be repaired in time for the race, let alone qualifying.[17] Furthermore, as Rast led Rowland and Wehrlein out for their warm-up laps, Turvey was handed six penalty points on his race licence for causing a dangerous collision and ignoring a direct instruction from the race director.[17] The Brit was to also start the next race he took part in from the pitlane, and would sit and watch as Rast and co. ended up behind Sette Câmara and Müller, who opted to go straight into their full-power runs.[16]

The #7 Dragon/Penske of Sette Câmara was the first to set a time in group two, with the Brazilian racer ultimately disappointing, with little mistakes in each sector leaving him in fifth place overall.[16] Müller delivered a similarly miserable run to claim sixth, although they would at least set competitive times, unlike Rast who locked his rear wheels braking for turn fourteen and had to throw his car into a spin down the escape road.[16] Rowland, meanwhile, would set a stunning lap to go fastest overall by six tenths, setting new benchmarks in sectors two and three, while Wehrlein slithered through sector three to claim third.[16]

Group 3

Group three would feature several title pretenders among its ranks, including two Champions, as those positioned thirteenth through eighteenth hit the circuit.[15] Headlining the group would be Jean-Éric Vergne in the #25 DS-Techeetah, as well as 2016/17 Champion Lucas di Grassi in the #11 Audi.[15] Also on track would be Stoffel Vandoorne in the second factory Mercedes, André Lotterer in the #36 Porsche, Alexander Sims of Mahindra Racing, and Jake Dennis in the BMW-Andretti.[15]

Vergne was the first driver to leave the pitlane in group three, with the Frenchman joined on track by di Grassi, Dennis and Lotterer on track as those four opted to complete warm-up laps.[16] What followed would be a four-way fight on track between the quartet, with di Grassi trying and failing to lunge past Vergne into turn seven, while Lotterer would elbow his way past Dennis at turn fourteen.[16] Away from that, meanwhile, Sims and Vandoorne would go straight for their full power runs, and were half a lap away from the rest when they started their runs.[16]

Sims was the first driver to set a time in the group, although a poor opening sector and a rear slide through turn fifteen left him outside of the Super Pole slots in seventh, which instantly became eighth when Vandoorne claimed second with a stunning effort in sector three.[16] Vergne was next across the line to secure third, finding his pace in the first sector, before di Grassi supplanted him by a few hundredths a couple of seconds later.[16] Lotterer then went second fastest overall with a strong run, another driver to find time in sector one, while Dennis was two seconds off the pace in fifteenth.[16]

Group 4

The final group of the session saw those positioned nineteenth through twenty-fourth in the championship hit the circuit, with former champion Sébastien Buemi the stand-out name in the #23 Nissan.[15] He would be joined on track by Nick Cassidy in the second Virgin-Audi, as well as Norman Nato in the #71 Venturi-Mercedes.[15] Maximilian Günther was set to be another contender in the #28 BMW, while Alex Lynn and Tom Blomqvist would get to show their potential in their respective #94 Mahindra and #88 NIO entries.[15]

Group four would enter the circuit just as it seemed that the drizzle was intensifying, although given the tight four minute window it was not expected to drastically affect their runs.[16] Buemi led the drivers out onto the circuit, with only Günther deciding against bedding in his car with a warm-up lap.[16] The German youth would hence be the first driver to set a flying lap when he went straight into his full power run, although a promising run through the first two sectors was undermined by a loose rear through the final sector, leaving him in sixth place.[16]

Buemi was next across the line but a rear lock-up and slide through turn fifteen cost him a lot of time, leaving him in tenth, before Cassidy looked set to go fastest by setting a new benchmark in sector one, some four tenths faster then Rowland.[16] The New Zealander then undid all of his good work by smacking the wall exiting the chicane, forcing him to stop at turn fourteen, although that would not impact the runs of Blomqvist, Lynn and Nato behind.[16] Those three, however, would simply lack the pace to truly challenge for Super Pole, with Lynn the best placed of the trio in thirteenth when the chequered flag fell.[16]

Super Pole

The drizzle had intensified to rain in the pitlane as Günther left the pitlane to begin Super Pole, although the circuit remained largely in the same condition as it had been throughout the group stages, with several slippery sections.[16] Regardless, Günther would open his bid for pole with a strong first sector, although slides in the second sector, and a lock-up on the brakes for turn eighteen, meant he could only record a 1:39.751.[16] Vergne was the next on circuit and found two tenths in each of the first two sectors, before finding another four tenths in the final sector over Günther to go fastest with a 1:38.947.[16]

Next out was di Grassi in the #11 Audi, although while the Brazilian veteran had a clean run through the first sector, di Grassi would find himself trailing Vergne by two tenths.[16] Yet, di Grassi would bounce back with an impressive second sector to go half a tenth ahead of Vergne, battling a nervous rear-end on the Audi through the rest of the lap to go fastest with a 1:38.903.[16] Vandoorne went next and similarly had to battle a car which would have some minor snaps from the rear, although the Belgian racer would have enough pace in hand to brush the wall at turn thirteen and top the timesheet with a 1:38.484.[16]

Lotterer's turn to join the Super Pole fight followed, and a strong opening sector saw the #36 Porsche go 0.050s up on Vandoorne after the first third of the lap.[16] A brush against the wall at turn eight then cost him two tenths in the second sector, before a wide run through turn fifteen saw Lotterer slot into second, 0.167s off the #5 Mercedes.[16] Rowland would then round out qualifying for Nissan, and despite going a tenth and a half up on Vandoorne after the first two sectors, the Brit would end his run by hitting the wall at turn nineteen in the run to line, dumping him back to third.[16]

Race

Rain would fall intermittently between qualifying and the race, resulting in a damp EUR circuit as the field gathered on the dummy grid ahead of the start.[20] Indeed, such were the conditions in parts of the circuit, particularly on the freshly laid tarmac, that race control opted to start the race behind the Safety Car as a precaution after drivers had not driven on the revised Rome layout in the damp/wet conditions before.[20] Elsewhere, Edoardo Mortara would start the race from the pitlane after an issue, while Oliver Turvey, who received six penalty points on his license for causing the FP1 accident, was unable to start the race due to damage.[20]

Report

After one lap to assess the conditions the new Mini Safety Car slipped into the pitlane, leaving pole sitter Stoffel Vandoorne to control the field as the approached the end of the first tour.[20] The #5 Mercedes would bolt on the exit of turn seventeen in a bid to break clear, although second placed André Lotterer would go with him as they started the second tour.[20] Oliver Rowland, in contrast, would get caught out and drop a few car lengths back as he held onto third, with the rest of the field making it through the first corner in grid order.[20]

The first move of the day came at turn four, with Sam Bird scything down the inside of Sébastien Buemi for ninth place, as Lotterer eyed a move on Vandoorne on the climb through turns five/six.[20] Lotterer duly threw the #36 Porsche down the inside of the #5 Mercedes for the lead into turn seven, only for the two to collide and slide towards the outside wall.[20] Lotterer ended up skating into the barrier and sustained some front wing damage, resuming down in seventh, while Vandoorne took to the escape road, spun himself around, and rejoined down in thirteenth.[20]

That left Rowland in the lead of the race, although the British racer was almost instantly slapped with a drive-through penalty for power overuse, the result of running over a bump that caused a spike in power output.[20] When he served that penalty on lap five the lead was handed to Lucas di Grassi, although the Brazilian racer had Jean-Éric Vergne crawling all over his tail as they passed Rowland entering the pitlane.[20] Further back, meanwhile, Vandoorne moved ahead of Alex Lynn but then dropped back to thirteenth by arming Attack Mode, while Lotterer was lacking some front right bodywork as he attacked Bird for sixth.[20]

Vergne's first bid for the lead came on lap six, with the #25 DS Techeetah trying to go around the outside of the #11 Audi into turn seven, although di Grassi would keep Vergne behind without too much issue.[20] Another look came at turn fourteen, just before Sérgio Sette Câmara came to a stop exiting the chicane with a loss of drive, although the Brazilian racer would manage to drag his car clear of the track.[20] The lack of outside intervention to remove the #7 Dragon/Penske hence allowed Lotterer to lunge past Bird into turn sixteen to secure sixth, as heavy rain graced the circuit for a few minutes before disappearing.[20]

The intervention of the rain would cause a tense few minutes, with the field settling into a brief lull as everyone waited to see where the weather was heading, as well as waited for the optimum time to use Attack Mode.[20] Buemi was the first to blink post-rain, arming AM on lap eight, while Robin Frijns almost lost control when he had a half-look at Vandoorne into turn seven and locked his rear wheels.[20] Bird, meanwhile, would hound Lotterer hard in a bid to reclaim sixth, forcing the German racer to defend into turn fourteen, before forcing his way down the inside of the #36 Porsche into turn four a lap later.[20]

Out front, meanwhile, the fight for victory would be reignited once the brief shower ended, with Vergne trying another lunge to the outside of turn seven, although di Grassi again hugged the inside line and retained the lead.[20] That moment allowed the rest of the top five, and hence meant that the #25 DS Techeetah dropped to fifth when Vergne dived across to arm AM at turn fifteen a few moments later.[20] Bird would almost manage to sneak ahead of the Frenchman too but failed to capitalise, and would instead find himself with Lotterer trying to elbow his way back past down the inside of turn sixteen.[20]

Vergne would use the AM boost to ascend the order fairly quickly, breezing back ahead of Pascal Wehrlein, before Frijns and Nyck de Vries let him back up into second as they armed AM on the following tour.[20] A lap later and he was into the lead as di Grassi went for AM himself, with the Brazilian dropping to third behind Frijns, while Bird, who had briefly moved into third during the AM shuffle, dropped to sixth ahead of the recovering Vandoorne.[20] Evans, meanwhile, would be the last of the lead group to arm AM and slipped back down to eighth, while Lotterer was handed a five second time penalty for causing the collision with Vandoorne at the start.[20]

The next exchange saw Frijns try an ambitious move to the outside of Vergne entering turn three, although a robust defence from the #25 DS Techeetah kept the #4 Envision Virgin at bay.[20] Furthermore, it would compromise Frijns' exit from the corner, allowing di Grassi to draft past into turn four with AM, before seizing the inside line into the 90° left hander.[20] Frijns tried to hang on around the outside of the corner but was forced to relent, with de Vries duly taking full advantage and passing his compatriot to secure third as Vergne opted to use his second AM boost.[20]

This time Vergne would rejoin the fray behind de Vries but ahead of Frijns, with di Grassi reclaiming the lead as a result, with a handful of seconds of his first AM boost still to use.[20] On the following tour Vergne would try to force his way past de Vries, although the #17 Mercedes stubbornly held the #25 Techeetah off on the brakes for turn seven, costing Vergne time to di Grassi ahead.[20] di Grassi would duly opt to arm AM himself on that tour, dropping in behind Vergne, as behind Frijns' fall continued as Bird sold his old teammate a dummy into turn sixteen, weaving outside and then to the inside of the #4 Virgin into the right hander to claim fourth.[20]

Another lap and another lunge from Vergne at de Vries into turn seven, with the Frenchman this time managing to get alongside the Mercedes before the Dutch youth could defend, meaning the #25 Techeetah was into the lead.[20] In response de Vries would arm AM, allowing di Grassi to move back into second, while Bird and Frijns also activated the boost for the second and final time.[20] Evans would hence briefly run in third before he armed his boost, dropping back to seventh behind Vandoorne, while Jake Dennis stopped down the escape road for turn fourteen with an issue.[20]

Armed with AM for a lap longer than Vergne, di Grassi closed ominously on the back of the #25 Techeetah, and would shape up a move into run three, although the Frenchman fended him off without issue.[20] That move did, however, allow de Vries and Bird to close up onto their tail, with Bird waiting a lap before scything past de Vries for third into turn four as the Dutchman focused on re-gen for a last lap blast.[20] A near identical move between their teammates Vandoorne and Evans would follow a few moments later, the #20 Jaguar passing the #5 Mercedes for fifth, with Frijns watching onto the Mercedes-Jaguar fights ahead in seventh.[20]

With seven minutes to go di Grassi was all over Vergne's tail, and on the run to turn four the Brazilian racer threw the #11 Audi down the inside of the #25 Techeetah at the last moment to secure the lead, much to Vergne's ire.[20] With that the race seemed to be settled as di Grassi quickly established a small lead, as behind Vandoorne used FanBoost to draft past teammate de Vries into turn four in-spite of the Dutchman's efforts to keep him at bay.[20] Yet, there would be one late twist as the race entered its final throes, with the lead, podium and points all settled with five minutes to go.[20]

The catalyst would be di Grassi, who upon exiting turn four on lap twenty-two suffered a drive-shaft failure, meaning he could only coast through the sweeping turns five and six in search of a safe place to park the car.[20] Vergne duly charged past unhindered, while Bird would flash past as they entered turn six, di Grassi hugging the inside wall.[20] Vandoorne was next to pass the #11 Audi, although as he jinked around the ailing Brazilian, the #5 Mercedes hit a bump that spat the Belgian racer into the wall and a half-spin.[20] de Vries would hit the very same bump a fraction of a second later and slap the wall himself, before being left powerless to smack into the rear left of the now sideways Vandoorne and turn his teammate into a full spin across the circuit.[20]

The #5 Mercedes ended up hitting the opposite wall very heavily, while de Vries had heavy damage to the right side of his car having hit the wall side-on after the bump.[20] He came to a stop in the escape road alongside the drive-less di Grassi, while Vandoorne and a lot of debris were left stuck between turns six and seven, meaning the Safety Car had to be scrambled.[20] The last four minutes of the race were hence spent behind the new MINI Electric Pacesetter, with two laps passing before the chequered flag fell.[20]

Vergne was hence declared the winner ahead of Bird, while Evans claimed third to secure a maiden double podium for Jaguar in FE, and their first in an FIA World Championship race since 1991.[20] Frijns was next up ahead of Buemi and René Rast, while Wehrlein was a disappointing seventh ahead of Lynn, Lotterer (before his penalty was applied), Maximilian Günther, Nick Cassidy and Tom Blomqvist.[20] Penalties would then reshape the points scorers, with Lotterer and Cassidy dropping back for causing collisions, meaning Günther and Blomqvist were classified in ninth and tenth.[20]

The Dutchman himself had also climbed up the order after the first Rome race, overhauling former leader Nyck de Vries, with the younger Dutch driver slipping to third, eleven off the lead. Mitch Evans and race winner Jean-Éric Vergne then completed the top five, while Norman Nato, André Lotterer, Jake Dennis and Nick Cassidy had become the final four drivers yet to score in 2020/21.

Jaguar Racing extended their lead in the Teams' Championship after their maiden double podium, the British squad having moved onto 70 points for the campaign. DS Techeetah had moved up five places to second, but remained 34 points off the lead, while Mercedes-EQ Formula E Team had slipped back to third on 39 points. Envision Virgin Racing and Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler then completed the top five, while BMW i Andretti Motorsport had scored their first points of the campaign but remained in last place.
