Buemi sets up Formula E title showdown
Sebastien Buemi has set up a grandstand finish to the FIA Formula E season by taking victory in the penultimate round on the streets of Berlin.
The e.dams driver was involved in a dice with Jean-Eric Vergne in the early laps before he established a healthy lead which he maintained after the stops.
A late Safety Car threatened to hamper his hopes but in the end he held firm to take the win.
Daniel Abt came through to finish second after refusing team orders to allow championship contender and ABT team-mate Lucas di Grassi through in the closing laps.
As a result, Buemi has now closed to within a point of championship leader di Grassi ahead of the double header season finale at London’s Battersea Park from July 2-3.
