How Wehrlein turned the tables to move back ahead in Formula E title tussle

Formula E’s unpredictability has been a theme this season, so the unexpected return of the early pace-setter was probably always on the cards. Here’s how Pascal Wehrlein regained the championship lead, overshadowed a double podium for Jake Dennis, Maserati’s maiden triumph and recovered vital momentum heading into the title run-in

One look at the championship standings heading to Jakarta would have suggested that Pascal Wehrlein was very much in the hunt for the 2023 Formula E title. After all, he was the closest rival to Envision's Nick Cassidy and well clear of Jake Dennis in the similar Porsche-powered Andretti car.

But the reality was that the German driver was losing his grip on the 2023 title fight, with Porsche having been usurped by Jaguar as the benchmark powertrain in Formula E in the crucial middle part of the season.
