ONES TO WATCH: Will the Brits continue their winning ways at home?

Home soil as be kind to British drivers in the past. With one in the running for the title, is this the perfect location to close his championship account, or will someone else spoil the fun? Here's some tips to get you going in the Formula E predictor game.

dennis celebrates london 2022 win

It all comes down to this as the curtain falls on a spectacular season, with the new GEN3 machine providing plenty of drama. So far, throughout this season we've had seven race winners, 11 podium finishers and nine polesitters.

But when it comes down to the final chequered flag of Season 9, there can be only one, and that goes for you as well, as it's the last shot at Formula E Predictor.

For the win

If there was ever a fitting final locale for our championship leader, Jake Dennis, it would be right here in London.

Not only is it a home race, but the Brit has been the form driver when it comes to racing at this unique indoor/outdoor circuit at the London ExCeL. 

From four races at the ExCeL, the Avalanche Andretti driver has two wins and a further podium finish. It's the only track where he has claimed multiple victories, and he's led an incredible 83 laps at this venue. One of those victories came in controlling form, with a Grand Slam victory - and the next time we saw one of those was last time out in Rome by the man of the moment himself.

Looking to spoil that fun is Nick Cassidy and Envision Racing. The number two driver in the standings has nothing to lose as he chases down a 24-point lead to Dennis and will be prepared to put it all out there this weekend.

While Dennis might be the favourite on previous results, Cassidy could be dangerous. This race has seen a reduction in usable energy down from x to x kWh, and the Jaguar power underneath the Envision driver has been impressively efficient this season, with all the drivers being able to push much later into the race than their rivals.


Cassidy has three wins to Dennis' two and has come on leaps and bounds this season, his previous best finish in London was third place in the opening race of the weekend last year.

It's also a home race for the Envision squad and Cassidy, and they will be on the hunt to make it a clean sweep for both the Drivers' and Teams' titles for the green team. 

Podium potentials

Two drivers who need to score big on Saturday to remain in the running are Mitch Evans (Jaguar TCS Racing) and Pascal Wehrlein (TAG Heuer Porsche).

Both drivers have three wins apiece and have plenty of potential to run up in the mix this weekend. The pressure is on them though, but we've seen Evans in particular rise to the challenge. Last season in the penultimate race in Seoul, the New Zealander was victorious to take the title fight right down to the wire.

As mentioned earlier, the Brits do go well at home. From eight races in the UK capital, we've seen the Union Jack flying high on the podium on four occasions.

Evans and Bird podium Berlin one-two for Jaguar in Formula E

The first driver to hear their national anthem was Sam Bird, taking the victory in the first-ever London E-Prix and becoming the first driver to win at home. However, he's not been able to follow up on that, and since the win back at London Battersea, he's only had one race finish with eighth last season.

Despite it being a challenging campaign in Season 9, the Brit has had a fairly decent run with four visits to the podium. He'll be looking to make his presence known and end the year on a high to help Jaguar TCS Racing in the race to the Teams' title.

One lap pace

Qualifying will be vital around this tight, tricky and physically demanding indoor/outdoor circuit, especially when you look back at the previous four races at London ExCeL.

No driver has won at the ExCeL from lower than third on the grid, and the polesitter has been on the podium in three of four races here. 

(The only exception nearly being Lucas di Grassi after an inspired drive through the pit lane during a Safety Car period that saw him skip into the lead from 10th position but ultimately disqualified at the flag.)

Last season Dennis sweeped up both Julius Baer Pole Positions, and he's looked comfortable in the Duels this season, with the most appearances in the Finals and equal to Maximilan Guenther (Maserati MSG) for the most wins in the Duels.

Could we see another Duel of the Jakes? Dennis and rookie Jake Hughes (NEOM McLaren) have had the four face-offs in Season 9. Rookie Hughes has been flying over one-lap in his debut campaign and will be one to watch on home soil.

The driver with the best qualifying record in 2023 is Evans. The New Zealander has an average start of 6.1, which is better than Dennis’ 6.7, and Evans is tied with Guenther for the most duel stage appearances with 10. This will put the Jaguar driver in good stead as he challenges for the championship.
