Photo finish as race leader’s battery dies on the line

(CNN)Lucas di Grassi won a thrilling Mexico E Prix, pipping race leader Pascal Wehrlein as his battery died on the line.

Mahindra’s Wehrlein led for large parts of the race but his battery’s charge hit 0% just meters from the end, allowing Di Grassi to pass him on the inside.
The German driver was eventually demoted to sixth place after a five-second penalty for cutting off a chicane, as Antonio Felix da Costa and Edoardo Mortara came second and third respectively.
