The Grove-based outfit scooped 20 points – their best return in a season and a bit in the sport – to overtake DS Virgin Racing.
Brazilian Nelson Piquet Jr battled it out for a podium finish with Renault e.dams driver Sebastian Buemi but had to settle for fourth, while team-mate Mitch Evans climbed from a 12th-placed start to cross the line in sixth.
Piquet, who described the race in South America as “solid”, admits he needs to improve on his P8 start to make the podium.
Evans added: “It was a good race for us. I started 12th and finished sixth so I’m definitely happy with that.”
Piquet and Evans remain fifth and seventh in the drivers’ championship respectively.
Meanwhile, Grove-based driver Alex Lynn finished 10th for his DS Virgin Racing team.
The 24-year-old’s solitary point was the team’s only one after team-mate and drivers’ championship hopeful Sam Bird battled with penalties and a collision with Renault e.dams driver Nico Prost. He finished outside the points in 17th.
Punta del Este in Uruguay is the setting for the sixth E-Prix of the season on March 17.
