PARIS, April 27 (Reuters) - Dutch driver Robin Frijns won a rainsoaked Paris E-Prix on Saturday to become the all-electric Formula E series’s eighth different winner in eight races this season and seize the overall lead.
The 27-year-old, competing for the Virgin Racing team and starting third on the grid, was the first winner from the Netherlands in the five-season history of Formula E.
He was joined on the podium by Germans Andre Lotterer, for DS Techeetah, and Daniel Abt for Audi.
Frijns now has 81 points to Lotterer’s 80, with five rounds remaining. (Reporting by Alan Baldwin, editing by Clare Fallon)
