In Puebla, Mexico, in the fourth double weekend of 2021 in the Formula E World Cup, the Portuguese driver finished eighth in this season’s ePrix in sixth, taking points from his most direct opponents in the championship, and on top of the championship. The ranking accelerated from fourth to second place with 60 points, only two points behind the first, Robin Frijns (Virgin), who finished 18th.
The defending champion of the electric single-seat championship made an exciting comeback in the 45-minute race (another lap), having qualified for 11th place. In Mexico, Pascal Wehrlein (Porsche) was first on the checkered flag, but the German driver and team, due to a technical infraction, were disqualified from the ePrix.
