Whatever happens in Moscow, it will automatically make a difference in the thrilling title race in London. The top three Formula E drivers are separated by just ten points. Read what they said.

Lucas di Grassi was excluded from the Berlin race, missing out 25 points for collecting the overall win. As a result he lost the lead in the championship. “We are working really hard to make the car as best as possible,” the Brazilian said. “Now the championship battle is much more intense, we have to take more risks, we have to improve the car better. But it’s still completely open – there are still 90 points available and the difference between the top three is only ten points, so it’s really small.”

The win was awarded to Jerome D’Ambrosio. After steady performances with Dragon Racing, the Belgian still has a shot to become the inaugural champion, he said. “It was good to get the win for the team especially as they have been working really hard. But also Loic [Duval] was on the podium, and the first team to put two guys on the podium in this series, that’s really great for Dragon Racing.

“I think me and Nico [Prost] are probably in the same position. We are clearly the guys that have to push hard, and we can allow ourselves to take more risks, and if there’s a gap for sure I will go for it.”

Nelson Piquet Jr has taken over the lead in the championship, but said the approach to a racing weekend hasn’t changed. The NEXTEV TCR driver said: “Every race meeting we try to do our best and prepare in all areas. Each team and driver does the same but coming to the end of the season in the points lead means you don’t need to take as many risks but we will continue to push hard.”

E.dams-Renault’s Sebastien Buemi is currently in the mix for FanBoost and hopes the extra power will help collect more points in the battle for the fastest lap. “Nelson is always good in the FanBoost and tends to get the fastest lap,” Buemi laughed. “Obviously it’s easier to put a quick lap together with the extra power and get those two extra points for the championship.”
