The Briton was promoted from second to first in the Misano ePrix standings and, at the same time, took the lead in the World Championship with 80 points. Defending champion Andretti's Jake Dennis moved up from third to second, a position he also holds in the championship, and Maserati's Maximilian Günther took third. Felix da Costa lost the brilliantly earned 25 points, and instead of climbing to seventh in the championship, he dropped from 11th to 13th.
