Jake Dennis claims his first Formula E world title at the Hankook London E-Prix

Jake Dennis claims his first Formula E world title at the Hankook London E-Prix

Saturday’s opening race of the Hankook London E-Prix double-header provided the answer to the weekend’s biggest question. After 36 dramatic laps of the unique indoor and outdoor circuit, packed with spectacular overtaking manoeuvres, safety car phases and stoppages, Britain’s Jake Dennis (Avalanche Andretti Formula E) came home second to ensure he was crowned the new Formula E world champion before the final race on Sunday. New Zealander Mitch Evans from the Jaguar TCS Racing team won the race itself, but Dennis’ advantage over the chasing pack was already unassailable coming into the final race of the season. The secret of the 28-year-old’s success this season was unquestionably his consistency: Dennis made it onto the podium a total of eleven times. He proved to be particularly successful in the races with Hankook as the title sponsor. The Brit won the season-opener at the Hankook Mexico City E-Prix and the Sunday race at the Hankook Rome E-Prix. Dennis is the first Formula E world champion from Great Britain.

Sunday’s final race of Season 9 was won by Nick Cassidy (Envision Racing), ahead of Mitch Evans (Jaguar TCS Racing) and Jake Dennis (Avalanche Andretti Formula E). As a result, it was Envision Racing who won the Team Championship.

Hankook Motorsport Director Manfred Sandbichler: “On behalf of the whole Hankook team, we congratulate Jake Dennis and everyone in the Andretti team on winning the Formula E Drivers’ World Championship. Jake’s strong performances throughout Season 9 make him a very worthy champion. We also congratulate Envision Racing, who won the Team Championship. We are pleased to be part of this success as exclusive tyre supplier of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship.
