Renault e.dams celebrated taking a third straight team’s championship at the Montreal ePrix.

The race itself was a disaster for the French team, resulting in their worst haul of the season with just nine points.

It included a disqualification for Sebastien Buemi after last minute repairs by the team left the car underweight.

In the second race he was then forced to pit by race stewards due to damage to bodywork on his car, which relegated him to the back of the field.

But thanks to Renault’s healthy lead over Abt Schaeffler Audi going into the race it didn’t matter, with the French team taking the title by twenty points.

It means they are the only team to have ever won the team’s championship, and although they missed out on another driver’s title for Buemi, co-owner of the team Jean-Paul Driot said afterwards that he was pleased that the team secured another title.

He said, “This weekend in Montreal was one of the most difficult weekends over my whole career as a team owner.

“But I would like to congratulate the whole team of mechanics for their incredible work this weekend, in allowing Sébastien to be able to take his chance to fight for the title, despite one of the most significant crashes in Formula E that we’ve seen over the three seasons.

“We are delighted to win the teams’ championship for the third time in a row.”

Buemi himself was understandably disappointed not to have won the driver’s title, but said that he would come back stronger next year.

“I am happy for the team, they really deserve this title. The car was amazing for the whole season. Unfortunately, it has not ended well for me but that’s racing and I have to accept it.

“We have to learn from our mistakes to come back stronger next year.”
