The 2015 Moscow ePrix, formally known as the 2015 Formula E Moscow ePrix, was a Formula E motor race that took place on 6 June 2015 on a Moscow Street Circuit in Moscow, Russia. It was the ninth round of the 2014–15 Formula E season.[1]

Background[edit]

On 3 February 2015, it was announced that the newly founded Formula E, a class of auto racing for one-make, single-seater, electrically powered racing cars, was set to race in Moscow on a street circuit near the Kremlin, on the north bank of the Moskva River.

Coming into the race from Berlin a fortnight earlier, Nelson Piquet, Jr. was leading the championship on 103, with Sébastien Buemi second 2 points behind. They had both jumped Lucas di Grassi, who was disqualified from the Berlin race for having an illegal front wing. Di Grassi sits third on 93 points. The win was inherited by Jérôme d'Ambrosio, who sits in fifth on 77 points, one point behind Nicolas Prost.

Report[edit]

It was the first for di Grassi since the season opener, and the first time the top 3 in the championship took the Fan Boost advantage.
