It took a monumental team effort, but by the end, Drivers Inc.’s Tanner Foust and his McLaren teammate, Emma Gilmour, were on the podium.
Tanner and Emma took second in the Uruguay Natural Energy X Prix, the final race of the 2022 Extreme E racing season.
With their finish, the duo ranked 5th overall in the season’s championship standings.
As Tanner said after the race, “There was mayhem at the start, which is weirdly what you hope for when you’re last. I ended up coming out in second I think, and I had Timmy [Hansen] behind me and I got almost rolled. It was a push to stay in second place on the first lap and then Emma [Gilmour] came through – she was awesome.”
Emma added: “It’s just fantastic – the team has worked so hard all year. We’ve had a few setbacks along the way so this is for the team, we couldn’t do it without them. I’ve got a fantastic teammate in Tanner and I’m just so happy to finish on this high note for the season.”
