From third in Marrakesh to first in Santiago and leading the championship standings. Envision Virgin Racing's Sam Bird had reason to celebrate after the race, choosing to mimic PSG player, Kylian Mbappe as he climbed onto the front of his car. 

Round 2 of Massa vs Rowland

After trading verbal blows in Marrakesh, Nissan e.dams' rookie Oliver Rowland and Venturi's Felipe Massa came together on track, trading bodywork this time in Santiago. "We had quite a few scraps, which was fun. I don't know if he's mad at me and I don't really care. He was winging a bit in the driver's briefing in Marrakesh - it's one of those things. You race hard and you take it on the chin. Maybe next time I'll come off worse," said Rowland after the race.
