Nick Cassidy complete a New Zealand double as he took victory in the Berlin e-Prix. The win would be his second Formula E win in his career as he closed in on Championship leader, Pascal Wehrlein.
Similar to the first race of the weekend, nobody wanted to lead and Cassidy admitted that he said on team radio that he’d prefer if the other drivers mounted an attack to overtake him earlier in the race:
“I was saying on the radio that I don’t want to lead here, but these guys (Dennis & Vergne) didn’t want to pass me, so I stayed there for a bit”
As Cassidy is within touching distance of taking the lead of the Championship, he knows that he can take the title if he continues his consistency that has proved successful so far this season. However, he knows that despite his season so far, one mistake can change everything:
“I think we all try to but you see how chaotic the races are and whether you first or ninth, there isn’t much in it. One or two bad calls can change that outcome.
“We’ve been lucky, we’ve had a good run but that can end in Monaco and I’m very aware of that. I just have to keep trying my best to do the best in every race that we can, but so far it’s been a dream run. “
