It is hard to believe, but just two rounds ago Lucas di Grassi appeared to have choked the championship away.

After what looked to be a triumphant victory in the March 12 Mexico City ePrix, di Grassi was disqualified and sent to the rear of the grid. Suddenly, Renault e.Dams’ Sébastien Buemi held a 22-point advantage, near insurmountable given his consistency and the limited Formula E schedule.

Two dominant victories later, the championship advantage belongs to di Grassi. The ABT Schaeffler Audi Sport driver’s Saturday cruise to the inaugural victory in Paris, France has him atop the charts, 11 points ahead of Buemi.

There are still four rounds remaining in the sophomore Formula E season, and within them anything could occur and change the championship picture once again, but if di Grassi can hold Buemi off down the stretch, then his fans can look back on rounds six and seven as the races that decided the title.
