How Guenther’s patience provided his Tokyo Formula E triumph

Maximilian Guenther’s quiet accumulation in Formula E looked set to continue on the streets of Tokyo, but jumping on an opportunity to leapfrog Oliver Rowland ensured that he became the fifth different winner in the opening five rounds of this year’s intriguing campaign

For more than a decade Formula E has attempted to stage a race in Tokyo and that dream finally became a reality last weekend, as the all-electric championship set up shop in the most populous city in the world.

Having waited 10 years to see a race in Japan, the patience of a sell-out crowd was pushed a little further in the race as the inaugural contest was a slow burner that only came to fruition in the final stages as Maximilian Guenther and his Maserati MSG team put on a strategic masterclass that got the better of Oliver Rowland and home favourite Nissan.
