Sam Bird secures one of the most dramatic victories in Formula E history for NEOM McLaren

Sam Bird sealed one of the most dramatic victories in Formula E history at the São Paulo E-Prix, with a stunning final-lap move on former teammate Mitch Evans (Jaguar TCS Racing) to secure NEOM McLaren's first victory in the ABB FIA World Championship and his first with the team.

The race that included 212 competitive overtakes was watched by tens of thousands of fans in Brazil’s most populous city including racing royalty Bernie Ecclestone and fellow countrymen Felipe Massa and Emerson Fittipaldi.

António Félix da Costa (TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team) rounded out the top six, while Brazilian home hero Lucas di Grassi (ABT CUPRA) only managed 13th respectively.

This resulted in a substantial reduction of Cassidy's lead at the top of the standings, due to his crash and absence of points from this race.

In the Teams' Jaguar TCS Racing head TAG Heuer Porsche, 96 points to 61.
