Rookie Jehan Daruvala on his best Formula E result yet

The Maserati MSG Racing driver added to his points tally around the Tempelhof Airport Street Circuit.


Jehan Daruvala managed to secure his best Formula E result in Berlin, with the rookie finishing in seventh for Round 10. Having started 13th, he managed to navigate the challenging racing style to emerge with six points. 

Iit was a good race overall,” Daruvala stated after the 2024 SUN MINIMEAL Berlin E-Prix weekend. “Saturday was a good day as well, but we didn't manage to score the points but today we converted it so I'm happy!

HANKOOK DEBRIEF: Seven things we learned in Berlin

“We were fighting near the top-end the whole race, and then in the end I did a good overtake to get seventh in the last corner. I feel like I'm making good steps and I’m looking forward to fighting in the sharp end for the rest of the season.”


Asked if there was more on the table, the Indian rookie said you can “always do things better”. 

“I maximised my own race and I stuck to the plan. We had a great strategy. We executed everything well, we took ATTACK MODE at the right time and then it all paid off and we scored some decent points. 

“[The racing style is] super difficult. It's very close and there's a lot of packing up going on so you have to be aware in every single corner. All the drivers here at Formula E are at a super high level, and the goal is always to see the chequered flag and that helps score points as well.”

From the first 10 races of his Formula E career, Jehan has scored 10 championship points after his success in Berlin and a ninth place in Misano. He also managed to get through to the Qualifying Duels in Round 9 for the second time this season, but was forced to start at the back after receiving a 20 place grid penalty due to a rear gearbox change. 

Unfortunately it was a different story on the other side of the Maserati MSG Racing garage, as  Maximilian Guenther suffered a double DNF at his home race in Germany. 

On Saturday for Round 9, Guenther started in fifth after making the Duels. After moving down the grid at the start for a more conservative approach to the race, he also managed to miss one of the ATTACK MODE loops which failed to activate it. Later in the race, he was forced to retire with damage when his front wing broke, and subsequently slid under his car which impacted his steering and saw him hit the barriers. 

For Sunday, he qualified in the same position but was also unable to make the chequered flag. A loss of power on the first lap cost him places, and under consuming meant he was able to send it later on – gaining six positions in one lap alone! He was able to get back into the top 10 but had an almost identical incident to his contact with the barriers the day before.
