Stoffel Vandoorne won the Formula E world driver's title on Sunday after finishing second in the final race of the season in Seoul, reports AFP. Vandoorne's Mercedes team won the constructors' title for the second year in a row to give them the perfect send-off as this was their last ever Formula E race after selling their series team to Formula 1 rivals McLaren.

Speaking about winning the driver's title, Vandoorne said that it'd been a great season, and the team had done a great job. "Mitch and Edoardo have been pushing me all season, but it's all been about consistency. They have more wins than me, but I have more podiums," he further added. Although he has only won once this season, in Monaco, Vandoorne scored points in 15 of the 16 races and finished on the podium seven times.
