Jake Dennis wins the Hankook Mexico City E-Prix on the new Hankook iON Race

The Hankook Mexico City E-Prix, the opening round of this season’s ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, was a magnificent spectacle. More than 40,000 fans in the Mexican metropolis made for sold-out grandstands and celebrated a commanding victory for Briton Jake Dennis, who won by 7.816 seconds in a Porsche 99X Electric run by the Avalanche Andretti Formula E team. The winner’s trophy was presented by Jeongho Park, Executive Vice President & Chief Marketing Officer of Hankook Tire. Germany’s Pascal Wehrlein from the TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team crossed the finish line in second place. Third place went to Lucas di Grassi from Brazil, who lines up for Mahindra Racing.

Manfred Sandbichler, Hankook Director Motorsport: “That was a very successful premiere for the new Hankook iON Race at the Mexico City E-Prix. More than 40,000 fans witnessed an incredibly exciting season-opener in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship. Our tyres supported all the drivers with the expected level of performance, both in a mere six degrees Celsius during the morning’s free practice session and in 22 degrees during the race. The spectacular overtaking attempts and manoeuvres at the end of the race show how high the potential grip of the new iON Race is, despite the diverse track conditions.”
