A new record with the Hankook iON Race

Plenty of power, skills and grip – with the strong performance of the Hankook iON Race, France’s Jean-Éric Vergne of DS Penske celebrated a new record in the Formula E World Championship. During the qualifying session for the eleventh race of the season on Saturday, the 34-year-old prevailed over his rivals and started from first on the grid in an e-prix for the 17th time.
