In an exciting round of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship series, Nelson Piquet Jr. secured fourth position for Panasonic Jaguar Racing in his third appearance for the British team at the Circuit International Automobile Moulay El Hassan.
Starting the Marrakesh E-Prix with Nelson in seventh and team-mate Mitch Evans in ninth position, both drivers made good progress in the early stages of the race gaining valuable places, with Nelson working hard to move towards the front of the grid.
Mitch encountered early lap contact which bent his car’s steering. Coupled with some energy management challenges, the team chose to pit him a lap earlier than planned. Shortly after his stop, a full course yellow flag slowed the grid, which dropped Mitch out of the position scoring positions. He finished the E-Prix in 11th.
