Sam Bird on cusp of huge weekend at New York City ePrix

Sam Bird on cusp of huge weekend at New York City ePrix

Rosenqvist had been second in the group stages and was fully committed on his lap, but the Mahindra star fell just short of snatching the top spot.

Sam Bird completed a flawless NY race weekend for DS Virgin Racing by clinching his second victory in the space of 24 hours, beating the Mahindra duo of Felix Rosenqvist and Nick Heidfeld. But after a full course yellow flag incident, Bird resumed his attack.

On lap 10 of 49 he lunged Rosenqvist at the tight Turn 6 hairpin, wresting the lead back with a superb and aggressive pass. Fortunately for the DS Virgin strategists, the green flag did not return until moments after Bird exited the pits still leading, dodging a bullet that could have sunk his win hopes.

From there Bird was faultless, stopping a lap later than the majority of his rivals under another FCY as DS Virgin judged the caution perfectly and gave its driver a lap's extra energy than those chasing him.

Lucas di Grassi finished off the podium again, but another top-five finish means he goes to the final two races in Montreal just 10 points behind championship leader Sebastien Buemi.

Rosenqvist took second place for Mahindra ahead of teammate Nick Heidfeld, the pair having swapped positions late on in a bid to aid the Swede's loose title hopes. Heidfeld took third place, Rosenqvist took second place.

As the three drivers approached the finish line in the final lap, Gasly made a move to get around Heidfeld in an attempt to secure P3, but the circumstances caused contact between the two drivers' cars and Gasly ended up in the wall. His Renault e.dams team-mate Nicolas Prost was down in 20th.

Elsewhere Maro Engel narrowly missed out on the shootout and will line up in sixth, ahead of the NextEV TIO of Oliver Turvey.
