FACTS AND STATS: Formula E's first trip to Portland in numbers

The ABB FIA Formula E World Championship heads to Portland this weekend 24 June for a first race in the city - our fourth host venue in the USA. Here's what to expect in numbers...


- Portland becomes Formula E’s fourth US host city after Miami, Season 1, Long Beach Seasons 1 & 2 and New York City from Season 3-8 across five double-headers

- Portland becomes the 30th city that has hosted a Formula E race

- The Southwire Portland E-Prix will mark the 25th Formula E race in North America. Only Europe has seen more races (47)

- In Season 9, Formula E has already visited three cities for the first time (Hyderabad, Cape Town and São Paulo)


- Across Season 9’s new locations - Hyderabad, Cape Town and São Paulo - Jean-Eric Vergne has scored highest (54 points) followed by Antonio Felix da Costa (52 points) and Nick Cassidy (51 points)

- Drivers' World Championship leader Pascal Wehrlein scored just 18 points across the three new events, including his only DNF of the season in Cape Town

- Four American drivers have raced in Formula E, all of whom raced for Andretti Autosport

- The most recent American driver to race in Formula E was Oliver Askew who scored 24 points for Avalanche Andretti last season. Prior to Askew, three US drivers raced in Season 1 (Matthew Brabham, Marco Andretti and Scott Speed), with Speed being the most successful taking a podium on his Formula E debut on the streets of Miami


- Lucas di Grassi has scored the most points in the US (150). Sam Bird (135), Sebastien Buemi (109) and Jean-Eric Vergne (102) are next best drivers

- ABT are the highest scoring team in US (222 points) with Envision Racing closely following on 220. The latter has outscored the former by more than two points in every race weekend so far in Season 9, this record could be taken by Envision Racing come the end of the race in Portland

- ABT have claimed the most podiums in USA (9). ABT and Andretti are the only teams to have a podium in all three American cities. With Dennis’ current podium streak (four in a row), this American podium streak could continue into Portland for Andretti

- Only Lucas di Grassi has managed to win in two different cities in USA. di Grassi took victory at the Season 2 Long Beach E-Prix as well as winning Race 1 of the Season 4 New York City E-Prix

- Sam Bird has led 103 laps in New York. The Brit is the only driver to have led over 100 laps in a single city


- Eight teams have now taken a Julius Baer Pole Position in Season 8 (with only championship leaders Porsche, Andretti and NIO having not started at the front so far this season). This equals the record with Seasons 7 and 8 for the most teams claiming pole

- Round 11 was the seventh race that Mitch Evans has led in Season 9, equalling the record set by Felix Rosenqvist in Season 3

- The Southwire Portland E-Prix will take place on Mitch Evans’ 29th Birthday. Six other drivers have previous races on their birthdays, with only once the driver finishing the top ten (Jean-Eric Vergne in Race 2 of the Season 7 Valencia E-Prix)

- Portland will be the last single header of Season 9 before Formula E travels to the Italian capital of Rome, and then the season concludes in London
