Lucas di Grassi (Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler) and ROKiT Venturi Racing's Norman Nato give us the guided tour of the legendary Monaco circuit ahead of Formula E's first race around the full, historic layout this weekend (May 8).
For the first time in Formula E history, we're going to see a grid of all-electric race cars firing up the hill by Mirabeau and the famous Casino Square, round the Grand Hotel Hairpin and through the inimitable Monaco tunnel ahead of the harbourfront chicane. They're all instantly recognisable turns, iconic sections of a legendary circuit that has hosted motor racing's past, since 1929, and now its electric future.
Here's Lucas di Grassi (Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler) and Norman Nato (ROKiT Venturi Racing) to show you around.
The traditional Monaco circuit we're set to race on this weekend runs to a lengthy - in Formula E terms - 3.33km and 19 turns. Legendary corners, energy management, high speed and plenty of overtaking it's "made for Formula E".
