Nick Heidfeld took the team to a historical podium and double-points finish at the 2017 FIA Formula E Monaco ePrix.

The German driver for India's Mahindra Racing team steered his M3Electro to third, followed by his teammate Felix Rosenqvist in sixth at the end of 51 laps in Monaco.

Heidfeld started at eighth, directly followed by teammate Rosenqvist. Heidfeld overtook three cars under braking into the first corner itself. Heidfeld’s podium is his fourth in as many series on Monaco street circuits after Formula One in 2005, International Formula 3000 in 1998 and Formula Three in 1997. The double-points finish is the best, ever recorded by the team in the race’s three-year history.

The team heads straight to Paris for the next round of the FIA Formula E Championship where they have just a few days to prepare for another tough race on the French cobbled streets around Les Invalides.

Dilbagh Gill, team principal, Mahindra Racing Formula E Team, said, “It’s great to finally be back where we belong in third place in the Teams’ Standings after our best ever result in Formula E. A double-points finish is exactly how we wanted to start our comeback of consistently strong results, and we can’t wait to use the momentum in Paris next week.”
