The NIO driver continued his excellent form by qualifying second for the race, and remains the only driver to have started every race this season from within the top 10.
“Obviously starting on the front row, it’s never nice to go backwards, but I think if you look at the race, we were not as strong maybe in qualifying so I think we managed it pretty well,” said Turvey.
“We had a great qualifying session, making it to superpole from group one. I was really pleased with my superpole lap – it was probably my best of the weekend.
After stopping a lap earlier than his rivals, Turvey explained why he fell back into the clutches of Jean-Eric Vergne and Sebastien Buemi in the second half of the race
“When Lucas [di Grassi] got through, we actually changed strategy and then we pulled away from the guys behind,” explained Turvey.
“In the second stint, we had to manage [energy consumption] a lot more than those guys. It was tricky compared to the first few laps, but we went shorter, they went longer, so they had more energy in the second stint and that’s why they were quicker.
“I think we managed it well. It’s a shame to lose a podium in the the second stint, but I think we weren’t really quick enough so fifth was a good result.”
Turvey has scored all but one of NIO’s 45 points this season. His fifth place finish moved him up to ninth in the driver’s championship and within a point of Jaguar’s Nelson Piquet.
