She finished in ninth, matching her best ever result in the series.

‘I’m happy. But I think we could have finished seventh, most of the race in the beginning we were right where Robin was, and he finished 6th. We had some issues at the end of the last stint, but it’s good to be in the points. That’s a positive.

Looking ahead to London, de Silvestro is looking forward to the track where she made her Formula E debut.

‘It’s the first track I know, so should be good to go there. I really enjoyed it last year so hopefully we get to have some fun there and some good races.’

Finally, on season three, de Silvestro confirmed there are no plans in place currently.

‘Not yet, all open right now. I’ve no clue what’s going to happen so the focus is to finish London strong and then we will see.’

The London ePrix take place on the 2nd and 3rd of July.
