After just three races, the Formula E adventure for Maximilian Günther could already be over: ex-Formula 1 driver Felipe Nasr should replace him from the Mexico E-prix on February 16.
Maximilian Günther threatens to lose his Formula E cockpit at GEOX Dragon after just three races of the 2018/19 season. As the portal ‘E-racing365’ reports, the German should already be replaced at the next race in Mexico City on 16 February by the former Formula 1 driver Felipe Nasr from Brazil.
According to ‘E-racing365’ Nasr should also contest “most of the rest of the season”. How many races this specifically includes and whether Günther should once again return to the GEOX Dragon cockpit, is not mentioned. However, the E-Prix in Rome on April 13 clashes with the race of the IMSA championship in Long Beach, where Nasr is defending champion. Günther himself was initially unreachable for an opinion.
Nasr, who drove for Sauber in Formula One in 2015 and 2016, has been negotiating with GEOX Dragon for some time. In the rookie test after the ePrix in Marrakech he had also been called as a driver for the team of Jay Penske, but in the end has not driven the car.
Günther is currently without championship points after a difficult start to the season, but had last made a first good impression at the E-Prix in Santiago de Chile, as he was faster in qualifying than his experienced teammate Jose Maria Lopez and in the race made it to sixth place until a technical failure ended his race prematurely.
