Review: Max Günther fights back sensationally on the Hankook iON Race in São Paulo

Maximilian Günther from the Maserati MSG Racing team demonstrated the excellent performance of the Hankook iON Race in Brazil. A penalty meant the German had to start the São Paulo E-Prix from the back of the grid. However, he then produced an impressive fightback to storm through the field, thanks in part to the plentiful grip provided by the Hankook iON Race. The German overtook eleven drivers in just seven laps. In the end, Günther crossed the finish line in ninth place and secured two valuable points for his efforts.
