Moscow was the penultimate stop of the FIA Formula E championship last Saturday and the scene of Nelson Piquet’s second win (Nextev TCR) of the season. With the victory, the Brazilian increased his advantage in the overall standings, the top of which is the same as the result of the Moscow race: Lucas di Grassi (Audi Sport Abt) was second and Sébastien Buemi (e.dams-Renault) third. The latter received a 29-second penalty mark-up after the race and therefore slipped to ninth place in the official standings. Nevertheless, the e.dams-Renault team, with Buemi's ranking and the fastest lap of the race and Prost's eighth place, won so many points that it has a solid advantage in the overall standings before the final races, which will take place in London at the end of the month.

Antonio Felix da Costa became the fourth racer to win the new series of electric race cars in the fourth Formula E race in Argentina. Da Costa took the lead in the race in the final lap after former leaders Sebastien Buemi, Lucas di Grassi and Nick Heidfeld ran into trouble. Buemi started the race from the best starting position and also took the lead in the first lap, while Heidfeld overtook Jaime Alguersuari. The German chased the leading Buemi, but despite the additional engine power given to him by the viewers via the Fan Boost app, he could not break into the lead. With a great maneuver, Di Grassi first overtook Sam Bird for fourth place, then past Alguersuari, and soon he was offered the opportunity to overtake Heidfeld, which he easily took advantage of.

Free led most of the laps, while Heidfeld made his way to second place after a mandatory stop in the pits, where racers swapped race cars. The duo escaped the rest of the pursuers in the last part of the race, with Heidfeld constantly attacking Prosta. The German tried again in the last corner of the race. He drove inwards and Prost tried to close the door in a narrow left turn, hitting Heidfeld's car. The German was bounced over the curbs into the air and into a protective fence. His car stopped overturned, but Heidfeld got out of it pov
