Mouser Electronics, Inc. congratulates Nelson Piquet Jr., and the entire China Racing Formula-E Team for a stunning victory Saturday at the Long Beach ePrix.
It was the first first-place victory for the Mouser-sponsored team this season. It was a particularly meaningful victory for Piquet as it was on this track that his father had his first Formula One win 35 years ago. With the most votes from fans, the popular Piquet Jr. also won the FanBoost. The win moves China Racing into fifth place in the team standings, and pushes Piquet into second place in the individual driver standings.
“It was an exciting race from start to finish and we here at Mouser are very proud to be a part of this new Formula E Series,” said Todd McAtee, Mouser Vice President Americas, Business Development. “The series continues to strengthen in attendance and viewership; this is just the beginning of the future of the new face of racing.
