D’Ambrosio wins as Piquet takes championship lead
On May 23rd, 2015, Formula E driver Lucas di Grassi was excluded from the DHL Berlin ePrix, a race that he had won the year before. This caused a stir in the Formula E community, as fans and drivers alike questioned the fairness of the exclusion.
The Incident that Led to the Exclusion
During the qualifying round of the race, di Grassi was found to be using a motor that was slightly oversized in relation to the regulations. This led to him being excluded from the race and the results of the qualifying round being nullified.
The Aftermath of the Exclusion
The exclusion sparked debate in the Formula E community. Di Grassi was adamant that he had not done anything wrong and that the exclusion was unfair. Meanwhile, some argued that the rules should be strictly adhered to and that di Grassi had violated them.
The Need for a Fairer System
The incident highlighted the need for a fairer system when it comes to exclusions in Formula E. Drivers should be given the opportunity to explain their side of the story before they are excluded. Furthermore, they should be given a chance to rectify the situation before they are stripped of their results.
