Still catching up on all the action from the ABB FIA Formula E Championship? No problem. As the voestalpine European races continue, here's all you need to know about the season so far ahead of the 2019 Monaco E-Prix
Sure, the ABB FIA Formula E Championship has always been one of the most unpredictable racing series on the planet but the results this season have taken the electric street racing series to a whole new level of competitiveness, with eight different winners in eight races. A first-ever win for Envision Virgin Racing's Robin Frijns in Paris extended the record streak further still but who’s next? Could DS Techeetah's Andre Lotterer finally clinch his first win in Formula E? Or will the master of Monaco Sebastien Buemi (Nissan e.dams) claim his third win on the harbourfront? Join us to find out.
With all that unpredictability, it's looking tighter at the top of the standings than it's ever been before with just 11 points separating the top three drivers and 29 separating the top ten. With seven of the 11 teams making it into the top ten and Chinese squad DS Techeetah leading the way, it's not just the drivers' championship that's up for the taking. As both teams and drivers look to boost their standing in Monaco, expect sparks to fly here on the harbourfront.
After witnessing the chaos of Formula E's first ever wet race in Paris, the series still proves to be, in the words of Lotterer, "the most difficult to drive." For Audi Sport Abt Schaeffler's Daniel Abt, the race in Paris was "like driving on ice" while for winner Frijns, it was simply "the hardest race of [his] life." With a hefty dose of crashes, smashes, spins and saves, expect more madness in Monaco.
