How Wehrlein kicked off Formula E's new season with a statement of intent

Pascal Wehrlein had to wait hours before he could properly celebrate his win in Mexico. But the message from the Porsche driver's performance was unequivocal as he set out his bid to claim a maiden all-electric championship with a dominant first win since Jakarta in June

On a weekend when Usain Bolt got to grips with a Formula E machine, the wait to officially declare a winner from the championship’s season-opening Mexico City E-Prix took a little longer than the world’s fastest man’s 9.58 seconds 100-metre world record.

In fact, it took approximately four hours after the chequered flag had fallen at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez circuit for on-the-road winner Pascal Wehrlein to be credited with victory after a post-race technical investigation. It somewhat took the shine off a performance that by any metric was dominant and a sign of intent from the Porsche driver, who is targeting an elusive maiden Formula E title in 2024.
