Robin Frijns Mexico City E-Prix

In the incident on the opening lap of the 2023 Hankook Mexico City E-Prix Round 1 at Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez, Frijns made contact with the rear of the Nissan of Norman Nato as the field concertinaed through the Turn 9, 10, 11 chicane. Both cars were forced to retire from the race, with Frijns coming to a stop at Turn 10 - conveniently placed next to the medical centre. 

That ended Frijns 32-race finishing streak, stretching back to Berlin 2020.

The Formula E family wishes Robin a full and speedy recovery.
