sixth place during a Monaco E-Prix (MON), a ninth competition in a ABB
FIA Formula E Championship. He was released from a standings after
a competition since of a order infringement. 

 

Roger Griffiths (BMW i Andretti Motorsport group principal):

“This was caused by hit during a competition between António and Mitch
Evans. He afterwards grabbed a steering circle and incidentally switched to
a aloft appetite mode. He was unknowingly that he had finished so and, as a
team, we don’t accept a telemetry, so it took a small while for us
to realize what had happened. That meant that he gathering regulating too much
appetite for a generation of time and he has been punished for this rule
infringement. This was an random transgression though a chastisement was
a judicious decision. As a team, we’re really unhappy with this
outcome though we honour a preference done by competition control.”

 

Alexander Sims (GBR) achieved good for an endless generation in
Monaco and looked to have cumulative a tip 10 place, before descending back
to 15th position due to an occurrence shortly before a finish of the
race. Sims and Félix da Costa started a competition from sixth and eighth
positions and directed transparent of all a early theatre battles. Some tough
duels took place on a lane as a competition progressed. Félix da Costa
crossed a line in sixth place. A few laps before a end, Sims had a
spin after a collision with Robin Frijns (NED, Envision Virgin Racing)
that knocked him out of a tip 10 and he finished a competition in 15th place.
