Putrajaya, Malaysia: Karun Chandhok and his Mahindra Racing Formula E team had a mixed day on the streets of Putrajaya after a pit stop problem cost him a podium and the Indian driver had to settle for sixth place.

Chandhok's fightback from 11th spot in an eventful race that saw him running third in the first half.

After two rounds, he is in sixth spot in the drivers' standings with 18 points.
The other Mahindra driver, Bruno Senna, crashed out of fourth place with just a few corners remaining in the race. Sam Bird of Virgin Racing won the race.

Reflecting on his race, Chandhok said: "Unfortunately the pit stop didn't go too well for us. One of our regular mechanics was taken to hospital yesterday so we're a man down so it wasn't quite a slick as normal.

"If we look at where the time we lost would have put us, I think we would have been easily on the podium. I was running in third place earlier on, feeling comfortable, not taking any risks but the pace was there. I'm driving well and we have a good car so we need to make sure everything comes together in Uruguay (the next round).
