Another feather in the cap for Indian motorsport history
For the first time in Indian and Formula E racing history, India welcomes the all-electric motorsports in the country which has made all the racing fans go wild over it.
The Hyderabad ePrix showcasing the fourth round in the series did not disappoint. It was an action-packed race with minor crashes and exciting wheel-to-wheel action that sent the motorsport fans in the country into a frenzy.
The race was won by DS Penske team driver Jean-eric Vergne, the two-time champion had to hold his nerves to win his maiden race at the inaugural race of the formula e in India.

A confidence boost for the home team
The Hyderabad ePrix not only served as an action-packed entertainment for the fans but also has led to a boost in the confidence of its home team Mahindra racing.
Mahindra racing finished off their first-ever home race by grabbing some points. Their drivers Oliver Rowland & Lucas de Grassi managed to finish off the race in the 6th & 14th positions respectively, but somehow, they failed to manage a podium finish in the race.
The first home race might have been of mixed emotions for the team but will give them immense confidence as they were backed by the entire country in their stint and will be proud of achieving points at least on the first-ever home race.
