Nelson Piquet Jr. wins Formula E race at Long Beach
Nelson Piquet Jr. won his first Formula E race Saturday on the streets of Long Beach, the same spot where his father scored his first Formula One victory 35 years ago almost to the day. The win was also the first in Formula E for the TAG Heuer China Racing team.
Piquet Jr. picked up 25 points to move up to second in the drivers championship, with 74 points, just one behind fellow countryman Di Grassi. The next round of the Formula E series will be on May 9.
TAG Heuer is very proud of his Chinese team. Thank you for all the emotions you gave us and for showing the courage to never crack under pressure!
