Nyck began his first Berlin E-Prix with a highly satisfactory qualifying session. By posting the best time in Group 3, the rookie went through to the Super Pole and booked a respectable fifth place on the grid for Race 1 on the Berlin Tempelhof tarmac. This was to be staged on the regular 2.352 km track, but in the opposite direction to previous years.
Nyck saw plenty of wheel-to-wheel action in the race which he finished in a hard-earned fourth place. "For Nyck, it was an intense battle to defend his position, and he gained one position overall," said team principal Ian James. "Today proved once again just how exciting a Formula E race can be."
For Nyck, fourth place was the best result so far of his budding Formula E career. Even so, there were times during the action-packed and tough race that he thought he might achieve even more: "Fourth place is a good result after an extremely eventful race. Perhaps we could have done even better, but I'm still happy with what we got. Yes, I'm satisfied, but at the same time, I would like to have done more, and I'm still keen to make my first podium appearance."
